Prologue to the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe

In listening to the information about C.S. Lewis in the prologue is there a possible explanation for where the story came from? Actually I heard two, one from his childhood and one from his life during the war!

Douglas Gresham, C.S. Lewis' stepson, explains how Mr. Lewis (Jack) took in children during WWII. Do you think he may have modeled the four children in his story after some of the children that he kept during the war?

The wardrobe was real to Jack. Why do you think that might be true? What experiences did Jack have in the wardrobe with his brother?

Mr. Gresham says he has read the book many times and each time he "sees new things in it." How can we understand that? Why would we see something different when we read it over and over?

Please introduce yourself, and then comment on any of the above ideas.
