I've started reading Douglas Anderson's collection Tales Before Narnia - fantasy stories and poems that might have inspired CS Lewis.

I guess that this is the original version, which appeared in The Oxford Magazine in the 1930s.

There are other gems in the book, such as an E Nesbit story reaches a magical land by entering the wardrobe in the spare room ...
