The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C S Lewis
'My Dear Lucy,
I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall still be
your affectionate Godfather,
C. S. Lewis'
For something different, this is not actually part of the story, but the dedication at the beginning of the book. I just found it very interesting. Not everyone reads the dedications, but they can give insights into the author and why they wrote the book that you would otherwise be unaware of.
And for another piece of trivia, do you know what the author's initials stand for?
No wonder he wanted to be called Jack!
