Publisher Comments:

A full-color paperback edition of The Horse and His Boy, book three in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. This edition is complete with full-color cover and interior art by the original illustrator, Pauline Baynes.

On a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives, they soon find themselves at the center of a terrible battle. It is a battle that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia itself.

The Horse and His Boy is the third book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series that has drawn readers of all ages into a magical land where horses talk and destiny awaits for over sixty years. This is a novel that stands on its own, but if you would like to return to Narnia, read Prince Caspian, the fourth book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Synopsis:

Shasta escapes from the land of Calormen with a Narnian warhorse, Bree. Along with Aravis and her horse Hwin, they uncover a Calormene plot to conquer Narnia and must find a way to save Narnia and its people. Full color.

Synopsis:

An orphaned boy and a kidnapped horse gallop for Narnia ? and freedom.

NARNIA ? where horses talk and hermits like company, where evil men turn into donkeys, where boys go into battle ? and where the adventure begins.

During the Golden Age of Narnia, when Peter is High King, a boy named Shasta discovers he is not he son of Arsheesh, the Calormene fisherman, and decides to run far away to the North — to Narnia. When he is mistaken for another runaway, Shasta is led to discover who he really is and even finds his real father.

Enter this enchanted world countless times in The Chronicles of Narnia.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis, was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends recounted to him by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was sixteen. Many years later, the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificient lion. Their story became The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, was awarded the United Kingdom's prestigious Carnegie Award.

412Scott, January 13, 2015 (view all comments by 412Scott)
This classic now reads with an extra sub-text about how our cultures interact and often clash in this 21st century world of global interaction. Of particular note is Chapter 8, In the House of Tisrac, as a commentary about authentic living through a faith compared to blindly spouting out platitudes and poetic phrases to justify greed and violence. If you read this as a child, and later had to read Huck Finn, you might find a parallel or two as well. Finally, it's still a gripping adventure novel to share with your kids, boys or girls, as a nightly read-aloud or a book to talk about around a meal or on a trip.
