About us


‘…if we pass this post and lantern either we shall find strange adventures or else some great change of our fortunes.’

C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Step through the back of the wardrobe. Snow is falling. There is a single lamp post burning brightly in the middle of the woods.

Come with us as we venture into a different conversation about children’s literature. The Lamp Post is a magazine of intelligent reviews, meaningful interviews, informed editorial and interesting news.

Bring your coat.
