Abstract

Literature for children is often didactic. C.S. Lewis and Philip Pullman both use religion, morality, and ethics in their fantasy works for children. While the methods of both authors are similar, their works provide strong contrasts. Lewis uses these ideas to further faith in a Christian God, while Pullman uses the same ideas to denounce organized religion, and stress the importance of free will and faith in oneself.
