17. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – C. S. Lewis (100 book challenge)

Jessie Ansons

I reserved this book online from our local library. When it was time to pick it up, I took my 2-year-old son along and he chose a couple of picture books while we were there.

When I took the books to the counter to get scanned, the librarian snatched them off me, then proceeded to huff and puff and click the computer mouse and sigh. Finally she spoke:

‘When you reserved this book,’ – held up The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – ‘you did it under your library card. You really should have used your son’s card because it’s such a muck around for me to change it over to his name to check it out.’

She thrust the books towards me and turned to do something else.

Did I have the heart to tell her this book was actually for me?
