Welcome, Jayce!

We can give you some place to look for your answers, but we can't answer your questions directly. As it says when you come into the forums, 'we won't do your homework for you'. The answers to your questions can be found by reading Lewis' essay 'On Three Ways of Writing for Children', found in the essay collections Of Other Worlds, Of This and Other Worlds, and On Stories. It's also in the omnibus adult edition of the Chronicles of Narnia, the one pictured below. You should be able to find one of those four books in a school or public library.


Hope this helps.

Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.

You know, it doesn't hurt to do your own research.

This is true. Google is always a good thing-- if you're really serious, Google-scholar. Forums aren't always a good place for information; not only do we, as the description says, have our own things to do (Some of us are still in school, and have homework of our own, some have already graduated, and don't see the need to do all that work again), but also, not all information you get off of the net is always trustworthy. People, probably not on this forum but others, will eventually have the wrong information-- it happens. You wouldn't want to get a bad grade because of something like that when you could've just done research of your own and gotten a better grade.
