Turkish Delight



Listen to Chapter 4 being read to you in English:


First page of Chapter 4

Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. This story is a”But what ARE you?” said the Queen again. “Are you a great overgrown dwarf that has cut off its beard?”
“No, your Majesty,” said Edmund, “I never had a beard. I’m a boy.”
“A boy!” said she. “Do you mean you are a Son of Adam?” 
Edmund stood still, saying nothing. He was too confused by this time to understand what the question meant. 

Last paragraph in Chapter 4

“Come on then,” said Lucy, “let’s find the others. What a lot we shall have to tell them! And what wonderful adventures we shall have now that we’re all in it together.”
