Curioser and curioser

After 55 years, another children's classic hits the big screen and becomes available in Thai for the first time. It took Harry Potter and his magical associates only four years to charm their way from Bloomsbury Publishing onto the silver screen _ and 47 years for the inhabitants of Middle Earth, be they hobbits, orcs or elves, to hit it big both at box offices and the Oscars since The Fellowship of the Ring, the first book of the Lord of the Rings trilogy was first published in 1954. But it's not until this year, 55 years after The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was first published in the UK, that it is being made into a movie, and the whole of CS Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia _ arguably amongst the best children's literature _ is to be available in the Thai language.
