Every Day in May: 19

Lucy Pevinsie

from the Narnia books by C. S. Lewis


"This must be a simply enormous wardrobe!"

" 'I think – I don't know – but I think I could be brave enough.' "

"In our world too, a Stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world."

“But as for Lucy, she was always gay and golden-haired, and all princes in those parts desired her to be their Queen, and her own people called her Queen Lucy the Valiant.”  


Lucy begins the journey to Narnia and leads off the first book in the series, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Lucy is known for her bravery, her loyalty, and her faith. She stands steadfast in her beliefs, even when her own family believes she's lying. When nobody else believes Aslan is near, she follows him implicitly.  She is kind and willing to see the best in others.

She never comes across as smarmy or precious, though - she argues with her siblings and has her own opinions. Lucy is a winning heroine whose quiet and faithful ways endear her to the people of Narnia and readers everywhere.
