shuripentu observed that Santa ignored the beavers; I'm assuming that this is because they're adults rather than children (in vague keeping with tradition).

From memory he doesn't ignore them in the book but he gives Mrs Beaver a sewing machine (which he offers to drop off at their house/lodge) and he tells Mr Beaver that the dam has been fixed and there are no more leaks.

A more tricky aspect is the way that everyone looked to the children for leadership......In the Narnia story, the lead centaur clearly had more military experience, so I had to wonder what actually qualified Peter to take charge.

Are they not the (prophesised)kings and queens so everyone assumes they will take charge?

for instance, in Ben Elton's novel "Inconceivable", he uses the books when he's portraying an idyllic view of childhood.

I would never have thought anyone could compare CS Lewis with Ben Elton and get away with it. Well done!
