One of my favorites. Eustace returns to Narnia and this time brings Pole along with him. Accompanied by Puddleglum, the children set out on a quest given by Aslan (remember the signs) to recover the young prince. They journey into the underworld and face dark forces in order to do so. ( )

Eustace Scrubb and his classmate Jill Pole escape some bullies and are transported to Narnia where they join up with Marsh-wiggle Puddleglum to find King Caspian's missing son, Prince Rilian, who has been kidnapped by The Green Lady. This was one of my favorite books as a child and, although the religious allusions are too heavy-handed for an adult, every time I reread it, Eustace and Jill bring me the same joy they always have. This, and the other books in the series, will be on my to-reread list for the rest of my life. ( )

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.

First words
It was a dull autumn day and Jill Pole was crying behind the gym.
Quotations
"Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all these things—trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made up things seem a great deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that’s a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We’re just babies making up a game, if you’re right. But four babies making up a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That’s why I’m going to stick with the play world."

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.
