Narnia is in peril, and only Eustace and Jill can help. Along with Puddlegum, a gloomy but valiant Marsh-wiggle, they are sent by the mighty lion Aslan to find Prince Rilian, heir to the throne. Their quest leads them past hungry people-eating Giants, and deep into the dark underground. But the true test for this noble band of friends comes when they face an evil witch and her deadly enchantments.
This was the fourth book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the sixth book in the series.
Don't miss any of the books in C.S. Lewis' classic Chronicles of Narnia series.

The Silver Chair is a children's tale that delights adults too. Aslan, the lion who represents the Lord Jesus in the Chronicles of Narnia, sends Jill and Eustace on an assignment to rescue Prince Rilian, whil saving the two children from troubles of their own.
CS Lewis at his best writing children's stories any adult can find rich with meaning. Of the Narnian tales, this is my favorite.
Eustace and Jill remind us that stodgy and calcified institutions can and will be changed for good when we are invited into and spend time in Aslan's country
Once again i am able to relive my childhood and travel to Narina, though i dare say i am to old to go there now. This book along with the rest of C.S Lewis Chronicles of Narnia are a must for anyone in need of a little adventure. You cant go wrong with this series.
I love a good book...
CS Lewis developed an interesting tail that carries the story of Narnia into a very interesting space. I appreciate this book.

Northam is the perfect "Narnian" narrator for me. He's able to give each character voice, without being too melodramatic in invasive. For me, it is curtail that narration isn't too dramatic - I want to feel like I'm being read to, not like I'm at the theatre. At the same time, you don't want someone so monotonous they put you to sleep (unless you do!). Northam is the perfect balance for me. I particularly loved his use of different English accents and dialects to voice the different characters.
We've probably listened to about a dozen children's and young adult audio books (including the preceding Narnia ones, which were also great), and this is our favorite. The book is a children's classic no doubt, but the narrator Jeremy Northam does an extraordinary job of bringing all of the characters to life in a way that's interesting to both the children and adults listening to it.
I was really disappointed in this book. The first ones being quite good. I really think C. S. Lewis was trying to come up with something to keep the story-line going. Like a TV series that should have ended years earlier, but didn't. I won’t call this work garbage, I will call it something that should have been left out of the series except all the references to GOD and the need to explain some aspects of religion in the series. Really, this could have been a story from the Old Testament without the wrathful GOD. In the end in order to understand the last book you need to read this one.
