	My daughter Olivia (she's 5 1/4) and I are working on a pre-quel to the Narnia books. Over the past year and a half, I have read her all seven books in the series. And, it would seem, that Olivia had a lot of questions about the origins of thing that were not answered in The Magician's Nephew.

	So, being a good pagan-parent of a daughter, I decided to help her develop a story that both explains some of the ancient beginnings of the magical realm and that balances the roles of the sexes (so not all the Narnian heros are men).

	Liv and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it.
