The passage Meeting Mr. Tumnus, is taken from the book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, written by C.S Lewis. This passage is written as a fantasy story which includes mythical creatures such as Fauns, Nymphs, Dryads and Dwarves. However, there are some elements of reality included as well such as Lucy who is represented as a girl, a human and a ‘Daughter of Eve’.
