c.s.lewis wrote the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe. Teacher book tells me to capitalize like this... C.S.Lewis wrote The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Why is the second the capitalized? Thanks...

    I believe because The Witch is more like a title rather than a thing. It's not so much that she's a witch, more that she's the Witch. Like the President. I think. I'll look into this a bit more and get back to you in a few moments.

    Doing an internet search I'm finding mixtures of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and The Lion, The Witch and the wardrobe. So I'm really not sure.

    I don't know if this is helpful, but I have the book and the title is capitalized: The Loin, the Witch, and the Wardrobe on both the cover and the copyright page. Regardless of what the book says I would think that you would default to the capitalization that the author used.

    Good Morning, I found the same thing, so I am even more confused. Thanks for looking and trying to help. I am a bit frustrated. My daughter had 4 sentences on one lesson that I questioned the answers to. I am no english expert, so very difficult when my brain tells me something different than the answer key. Thanks for your time and God Bless, Anna
