Susan, Susan, Susan!

If you haven’t read the Chronicles of Narnia, then this won’t make much sense to you as well as spoiling the end of a seven book series.

Linked over at Your Daily CS Lewis (on the Tagboard) is a link to an essay about “The Problem of Susan”. That is (if like me you hadn’t encountered the phrase before) the difficulty that a lot of people have with the fact that Susan does not return to Narnia in the last book of the Chronicles. Apparently several well known authors of children’s fantasy (Philip Pullman and JK Rowling) have commented on how they think this was a great flaw in CS Lewis’ books.
