A beautiful hardcover edition of The Horse and His Boy, book three in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. The full color jacket features art by three time Caldecott-winning artist David Wiesner and interior black-and-white illustrations by the series' 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, which has captivated readers of all ages with magical lands and unforgettable characters for over sixty years. This is a novel that stands on its own, but if you would like to journey back to Narnia, read Prince Caspian, the fourth book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
Clive Staples Lewis was born in 1898. Known as "Jack" by his friends, Lewis and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of a writer's club, The Inklings, who would meet at the local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewis's fascination with fairytales, myths, and ancient legends coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood led him to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further books in the immensely popular Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, received the Carnegie Award, one of the highest marks of excellence in children's literature.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.Pauline Baynes has produced hundreds of wonderful illustrations for the seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia. In 1968 she was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for her outstanding contribution to children's literature.

NatAge: Under 18Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5April 2, 2009NatAge: Under 18Gender: femaleAn amazing story...that you won't want to miss out on! It all starts off with a young boy named Shasta. His father is very cruel to this poor boy, and so Shasta runs away with this horse named Bree. Bree is a Narnian horse. All Narnina horses TALK! At first, Shasta isn't sure he's going to like his trip with Bree. Then one night, they find a girl on a Narnian horse, whose name is Aravis. Her horse becomes fond of Bree, and so they find out that they are both running away, back to Narnia. Unfortanetley, when they get to a royal city called Tasbaan, Shasta gets mistaken for another boy, Prince Corin. Susan and Edmund take Shasta into their palace. There, Shasta escapes after some time. Although he "hates" to leave Tasbaan, he must find Bree, Aravis, and her horse. On his way he goes. Finally he finds them, and to his dismay they all still have millions of miles ahead of them. After some time, they arrive at Narnia and Archenland. But their adventures aren't over, yet. In Tashbaan they left behind a Prince Rabadash, who is madly in love with Queen Susan. Rabadash plans to take over Narnia and Archenland, and he is on his way. Shasta hurries to warn the High King of Narnia, Peter about Rabadash's arrival. There is a huge war between Rabadash and his men, and Narnia's army. There is a wonderful suprise that awaits you at the end of the book, which I will leave for you to find out. And now, in a nutshell, that was the Horse and His Boy.
