[This is the second of kidSpain's questions]

Maybe these are silly questions but I would like to ask two things about Narnia:

- Why don´t Susan and Peter come back to Narnia when they become old? Why can´t an adult or teenager come back to Narnia?

Well, I think Aslan mentions that the older kids were supposed to grow closer to their own world, using the wisdom they had learned in Narnia in their everyday lives. I don't think they had outgrown Narnia exactly; they were simply better equipped to understand their own world.
Also, the older kids do make it back eventually- after death, they come to the New Narnia, in Aslan's country. The learning period was over; they had practiced in their world what they had learned in Narnia, and now, as Aslan put it, "The holidays had begun."
