"Pr'nce Casfian"

Today I told my 3-year-old brother the story of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - a very abbreviated version, with a lot of interuptions. He loves princes, knights, capes, swords, et cetera. When I got to the part about Reepicheep and his sword I asked if he wanted to see a picture. He said yes. "And a picture of Pr'nce Casfian TOO!" I said yes, of course, him too.

He sat on my lap looking at the new(ish) poster for Prince Caspian. He asked about a thousand questions, "Who's that? Is that Reepicheep? What's he holding? What's Pr'nce Caspian holding? Why does he look like that?" Finally, he said,

"I wish I was Prince Caspian."

Awww. :D Then he went on to talk about how he wanted to have hair like his, and a sword like his when he got older.

Then he asked my mom to read PC to him. *chuckles* I'm starting him off early. ;)

I'm sick. Sick, sick, sick. It is most unpleasant.

Awww....that is so cute! Good for you!

I remember when my sister was too young to read LOTR or see the movies...one day when we were out getting wood (or something) I told her the whole story from memory. I think she got a solid foundation!
