Overview

The Silver Chair by C. S. Lewis, Pauline Baynes

Narnia...where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans (and, if carefully cooked, on Marsh-wiggles, too), where a prince is put under an evil spell...and where the adventure begins.

Eustace and Jill escape from the bullies at school through a strange door in the wall, which, for once is unlocked. It leads to the open moor...or does it? Once again Aslan has a task for the children, and Narnia needs them. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, they pursue the quest that brings them face to face with the evil Witch. She must be defeated if Prince Rilian is to be saved.

King Caspian's beloved son Prince Rilian has disappeared. Aslan sends Eustace and his school friend Jill to Narnia on a quest to search for the young prince and defeat the evil Witch.

About the Author

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.

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.

The Silver Chair has proved to be my favorite Narnia book so far. I can keep good pace with it and understand every word. I've never absorbed myself that much in a book. I finished it and looked up wondering where I was. I can't wait to read The Last Battle.

The Silver Chair This story was about a girl named Jill and a boy named Eustace. Jill and Eustace go out to find the lost Prince of Narnia (which name is Rilian.) On the way they met a Marsh-Wiggle named Puddleglum and Puddleglum joined them. They had to go to the Ruined City of the Giants. They traveled threw a lot of snow to get to the Ruined City. Then they met the gentle giants that were planning to eat them. So they ran away from them. Puddleglum, Eustace and Jill went underground of the ruined city and found Prince Rilian. After the evil Queen died the underground world and the overland were in peace. Because the evil Queen was ruler but the men of the underground were scared to disobey her. Prince Rilian is now ruler of Narnia. They had to persevere to get past the rough things. If they quit Aslan would surely abandon them from Narnia. So everything would be under the witches control and no one would be happy. This book was fun and adventures. Having to travel and hide underground looking for Rilian. I think this was a marvelous idea for a book

I loved it. Once again Aslan is in need for help from another world. Eustace and Jill enter into the un-chartered parts of Narnia to find and save the son of King Caspian, Prince Rilian. Guided by a marsh-wiggle they travel through the land of adventure.Only to discover the remains of what seems to be the white witch who has captured the prince with false love and now has a spell on him. The book has everything from good guys and bad guys to twist and turns. So if you like these things read the book.

#6 in the series. An excellent classic saga. It's best to start with book #1, The Magician's Nephew, and work you way through in chronological order. Can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Highly recommend.

The Silver Chair is a wonderful book from the Chronicles on Narnia series. After me having not read a Narnia book in so long, this was like coming home again, having a re-introduction, a breath of magical Narnian air. Eustace and his school buddy Jill stumble into Narnia, and are given a request from Aslan to complete a mission: to rescue Prince Rillian, son of King Caspian. All in all, a good plot with a challenge set forth for the characters to complete. A general good vs. evil storyline. And Aslan reigns over all. Loved it.
