    Dear Diary,
    Today I and my siblings reached the old professor’s house. We will be staying here until the World War II ends.
    We were exploring the large house and we saw a quite empty room except for one big wardrobe. My brothers and sister trooped out, but I stayed behind. I thought it would be worthwhile trying the door of the wardrobe. To my surprise, it opened quite easily. It was enormous that i could get into it. It was dark in there but I went further in and pushing the coats aside.
    As I went on a step or two further, I felt something hard and rough. I couldn’t believe when I found I was standing in the middle of a wood with snow under my feet and snowflakes falling through the air. I felt a little frightened but very inquisitive and excited as well. I began to walk forward, and in about 10 minutes I reached a lamp post. I saw a very strange man with legs shaped like a goat. He was initially frightened but later he told me his name is Tumnus and this is the land of Narnia. Tumnus invited me for tea. I agreed and walked through the wood with Tumnus.
