Who Am I by Writing Narnia Fan
I sit in a row of people so fine
I am the tallest in the line
At the very end of the row I sit
In an enchantment so dark and thick
In the middle of the hall
Is a tabel and on it a bell
Ring that bell and you will see
The real and alive version of me

Who Am I?
Jadis (The Magician’s Nephew)

Narnian Riddle by Peter Pevensie
I have two stomachs,
One tail, and one nose,
I have six appendages
Though, none with toes,
I have brains, wit, and cleverness ,
I even eat six meals,
Two dinners, lunches, and breakfasts.
What am I???

Dark Clouds and Smells by Peter Pevensie
Dark clouds and horrid smells abound
Whenever I am to be found.
I feed on the blood of men
From my altar in Tashbaan.
My smoky form,this lean carrion,
Hates everything Narnian.
I stretch out my claws,
Open wide my jaws,
In the effort of snatching everything I see.
I can make you sick at the sight of me.

Answer (in backwards): hsaT
