Marsh-wiggle Madness Begins March 5

Every year, 68 college basketball teams compete in a championship tournament known as March Madness. We are bringing that madness to Narnia in a quest to find the champion of Chronicles of Narnia book covers!

You voted . . . now it’s our turn.

NarniaWebbers around the world helped narrow it down to the top 32 Narnia covers. Beginning this Saturday, hosts of Talking Beasts: The Narnia Podcast will pit the covers against each other . . . ultimately culminating in a champion being crowned.

    Looking forward to this. It’s exciting to see which cover will make it!

    Looks like fun! My favourite cover has always been the LB cover with Jewel’s blood-stained horn. It’s such a powerful image.

    • Col Klink says:

      I love the lighting on that one. (Not sure if lighting is the word for a painting, but oh well.)

    • jasmine_tarkheena says:

      I think that’s the edition I have. I think it’s Zondervan edition. It’s nightfall, and it has Jewel with blood on his horn.

    • Rogin says:

      That’s got to be a favorite going into the tournament!

      • Glumpuddle says:

        That cover is seeded 4th in the MN/LB region. It will be debated in the episode this Saturday!
