This book would be good to use when talking about following instructions, even when you do not know what they mean. I think students would like this book because of the strange adventure the characters go on underground. ( )

Puddleglum the marsh wiggle for the win! ( )

Imagine an edition that looks like this, but instead of Puddleglum on the cover it's the chair. Imagine the book on one of the little display easels in an elementary school library in a tiny town in rural Wisconsin. Now imagine a young girl, an avid reader who is going through the library with no guidance coming upon that. Well, I was that little girl. And I intrigued enough to pick it up and dive right in. Only well into the book did I realize it was part of a series. My first thought was one of relief - oh, yay, I'm coming in after a lot has already happened, my confusion is natural and not stupidity. My second thought was, of course, now it's time to read the whole set. Thank goodness for browsable libraries of physical books - who knows when I'd have encountered this otherwise. ( )

This is one of my favorite Narnia book! ( )
  melanielost | Feb 16, 2015 |
This book (which, despite the description in the title above, is actually the fourth book in the Narnia series) was okay, but not great. I enjoyed "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" much more. This one involved no battles and not much fantasy, only a simple search-and-rescue with a few twists and turns. I'm hoping the next book in the series, "The Horse and His Boy," is better. However, there was one passage with a really, really wonderful and insightful comment by one of the main characters showing how believing in Heaven and Christ is always better than the alternative of atheism.

The mythical land of Narnia and the adventures one always has there are the subject of this charming book, the fourth in a series that fortunately shows no sign of ending.

Book description
Jill and Eustace must rescue the Prince from the evil Witch.

NARNIA...where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans, 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 and face with the evil Witch. She must be defeated if Prince Rillian is to be saved.
