The Book of Revelation, for children, by C.S. Lewis. I'm a Narnia fan, they are wonderful introductions to the interior life. Even adults will like the series, and if reading them in order, this is the sad ending of the world. But readable.
It was written in 1956. ( )

Far worse than the rest of the series because it is all theology and no fun. ( )

adventures, tricks and magic. ( )

This started out a bit depressing, so I stopped for a day. Then I finished it quick.

Absolutely loved it. And while Lewis and I don't see eye to eye on every theological point in the Book, this was as good of a simple picture of Heaven as I think I'll ever read. Enough so that it just made me ache to "go home"... ( )

The Christian symbolism is clear enough, but the book can stand on its own feet as a deeply moving and hauntingly lovely story apart from the doctrinal content.

Book description
Das Finale der Chroniken von Narnia! Böse Zeiten brechen über das Land des Löwen herein. Der Affe Listig verkleidet den Esel Wirrkopf mit einem Löwenfell und gibt ihn als Aslan, den mächtigen Schöpfer Narnias, aus. Die Bewohner des Landes werden versklavt und nach Kalormen verkauft. Aslan bringt Eustachius und Jill auf seine eigene Art und Weise nach Narnia, um dem Betrug ein Ende zu bereiten. Als die Kalormen aber ihren Gott Tash ins Spiel bringen, beginnt der eigentliche Kampf. Wie wird er enden? Wird Narnia weiterleben oder untergehen? Werden die Kalormen die Oberhand gewinnen und Narnia vernichten?
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064409414, Paperback)

The last battle is the greatest of all battles

Narnia ... where lies breed fear ... where loyalty is tested ... where all hope seems lost.

During the last days of Narnia, the land faces its fiercest challenge -- not an invader from without but an enemy from within. Lies and treachery have taken root, and only the king and a small band of loyal followers can prevent the destruction of all they hold dear in this, the magnificent ending to The Chronicles of Narnia.
