Description

Narnia ... the land between the lamp-post and the Castle of Cair Paravel, where animals talk, where magical things happen ... and where the adventure begins.

Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan's own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia -- the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.

Performed by Lynn Redgrave

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.

    If I recall, Prince Caspian might have been the driest of the chronicles. I sure hope I remember right, because this was a dull read. As a child I enjoyed it, but I devoured all the Narnia books in short order. My children enjoyed the book well enough and frankly, they managed to make the movie worse (we watched it after reading). I know Lewis wrote so much of his work as allegories and Caspian is no different, but I just didn't have the focus for that with answering my six-year-old's constant questions about words she wasn't familiar with. We're on to the Voyage of the Dawn Treader!

    This is the fourth book in the Chronicles of Narnia series. I think so far this has been my least favorite one. I actually preferred the movie over the book. I didn't feel a whole lot happened in this book, even though a lot did happen. Not my favorite, but not horrible.

    This is my least favorite in the Chronicles of Narnia series. The only reason I reason it is to get the background for the characters in the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the next book in the series. It doesn't have much going on, and very little of the story even has anything to do with the Pevensie kids from the Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe. If you have never read the entire series, I recommend still reading this book once.

    Pretty good adventure. I like that Edmond is the 1st to put faith in Lucy when she claims to have seen Aslan. I found my self really disliking Susan.

    This is the third book in the Chronicles of Narnia. In this book the four children from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe find themselves tugged back into Narnia. A state of civil war has been declared, all the animals, trees and dwarfs have been banished, and Prince Caspian is desperately trying to regain his throne.
