I think DiGs and I had the idea at about the same time. Great minds and all that. ;)) Go for it! :D

Add me, please! :) I get the book often from the library, but never knew it was out of print... that explaines why it says $16.99 on the book and some triple-digit number on Amazon. ;))
(CSLewisNarnia won't be coming on the boards recently, so could I request to add her name on it on her behalf? :) )
I'd love to see "The Narnia Cookbook" reprinted!

*wonders how long it will be until wisewoman appears to wield her red pen* :P

--The main reason that I'm writing, <<take out that comma
--out of the price range for me <<should be "of" not "for"

It sounds a little odd to keep switching between singular and plural, unless we have one main "speaker" and then a separate list of names below. Also there are some places where it could be tightened/unnecessary words cut but that's fairly minor. [/pedantic-ness]

We could get a lot more names if we posted it on The Lion's Call, NarniaFans, Into the Wardrobe, and IMDb (and all the others I've forgotten) so maybe we don't want it to be so NW-specific? Just an idea.

Anyhow. Looks good! Thanks for doing that, DiGs. Add my name to the list. :D

I think that's a great idea! Mr. Gresham likes when all of the sites come together for a common good.

Hi, guys, sorry, that I haven't been around for so long! Thank you so much DiGoRyKiRkE, for already composing the petition! I am really grateful for your help, and to everybody's support! It's really amazing! Please, do ask your fellow NW friends to sign! I do have a little question, though. DiGo, would it be a good idea to also put our real names (like pm them to you, just don't share them with anyone else, except for Mr. Gresham), say for example, this would be mine: ElfMaidenArcheroRivendell
(real first name & last name) or
(First name & last name initial)

Because it is kind of funny, just to put fake names, and Mr. Gresham might question that. We could give people the option whether to put their last name or not, like especially for kids under 13. Well, I must go now. I'm very busy this week, sadly, so keep up the good work! I will check this place out often, though. Thanks, again everybody!
P.S. I agree with Alyosha. I was thinking about promoting the petition on those other Narnia fan sites. Well, I'm going to edit the topic intro soon.
@DiGoRyKiRkE & Meltintalle: I really like your petition sigs! Can I have one, too! Except I would like to use this picture: http://www.spareoom.net/gallery/?level=picture&id=224. Not the one on the site, just the same one that it says do not hotlink. Thanks. :D

Thanks Meltintalle! I really like it! And that was fast, too! There is only one tiny problem with it... The cookbook is called "The Narnia Cookbook" not the "Narnian Cookbook". It's ok, just wanted to let you know. I think you just have to remove the "n" from Narnian. Sorry, I don't know how to make graphics, & I don't have the computer tools, etc. on my dad's computer.

Thanks Meltintalle for correcting the sig! By the way, I like the font. Very pretty.

pickle: Don't worry, DiGo will make sure you're added. :D ;)

P.S. I edited the topic intro, everyone!

Hi lover of narnia! The letter is almost finished being written. DiGoRyKiRkE did it! :D So all you have to do is support for now. Ask your friends, too. :) Cooking literary foods, especially with your mom, or friend is sooo much fun! And eating, too! Hopefully, Mr. G. will say yes! Thanks, again.

This is a great idea! How do we get our name added, just by posting in this thread that we wish to be? If so, then add mine please! :D

That's correct. You've been added to the list, as have you lover of narnia. ;)

I'll try to read all of your suggestions tomorrow afternoon, and get another draft drawn up, but I can't make any promises.

Please add me to the list as well.
Last year I bought the Wisdom of Narnia and the Trivia book, but I couldn't find a Cookbook at any reasonable price. And I would have liked one ...
