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.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

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.

michelleRed Oak, Tx.Age: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5in response to ModreAugust 19, 2011michelleRed Oak, Tx.Age: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I can understand how you feel considering the world as it is today. C.S. Lewis wrote his Chronicles of Narnia Series as a kind of mirrored version of the Bible. The Characters are based on Characters from the Bible. The Isrealites or Jews as they are known today were typically lighter in complexion than the other people in the area such as Egyptians, Palestines etc. There was and still is conflict between them. Because the books are based on the Bible, which is historical, the struggles highlighted in the Chronicles of Narnia series are real, just told in a different way. In the series he refers to them as the Narnians and the Calormen. It is in no way a racial jab, or an attempt to imply that light skined people are good and dark aren't. If you read the whole series you start to see the struggle between God and man and Gods desire to be with us all. Not depending on the color of our skin, but the condition of our hearts. We are what keep us from being with him. Well I hope this will help you to understand, and give C.S. Lewis a chance.
LucasTucson, AZAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Interesting story and characters.July 16, 2011LucasTucson, AZAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was my favorite of all the Narnia books, primarily because it did not descend to childish silliness. It is a good story by an author in full command of language. Would not everyone benefit from continuing exposure to excellent writing in easily digestible form. I found particularly interesting the character development or alteration for Shasta, Aravis, and especially for Bree toward the end -- mostly through surprising interventions by Aslan.
Perhaps Reviewer 'two-star' Modre was correct in protecting her children from the story, but surely she needn't have protected herself from continuing to read silently to herself. How can one review a book that one has not read? She might have liked the ending where differences in color did not seem to matter. Oh, how I would like to see her review of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
ModreSouth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5October 16, 2009ModreSouth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleThe writing was excellent. The characters were interesting. However, I was not expecting differences in skin complexion to be highlighted. Mostly the hero and his people were lighter.The Calormen were darker. The heroine was an exception to this rule. However, this was a disappointment. I did not want to introduce these types of contrasts/highlights to my children. Contrasts about good and bad characters are helpful, but those that coincide with dark complexion = bad and light complexion = good are not. This may not have been intentional. Others may not see this as a problem. However, I did and stopped reading the book after the fourth chapter.
