Book DescriptionLife in the small fishing village in the south of Calormen is all that young Shasta knows until, one day, he overhears his father planning to sell him into slavery to a stranger and discovers that he is not a fisherman's son after all. Things become even more surprising when the stranger's horse starts to have a conversation with him! Shasta discovers that the horse is called Bree, and that he comes from a magical land in the North. Together they decide to flee Calormen and slavery and head for the freedom of that land - Narnia. So begins a hazardous journey, fraught with mystery and danger. They must endure a harsh desert, climb the high mountains of Archenland and overcome many enemies before they reach their destination.

Grief Observed Readers' Edition, Paperback (January 2015)» View all books by C. S. Lewis
In April 1956, C S Lewis, the author of The Chronicles of Narnia, married Joy Davidman, an American poet with two small children. After four intensely happy years, Davidman died of cancer and the author found himself alone again, and inconsolable. In this journal, he freely confesses his pain, rage, and struggle to sustain his faith.
US Kirkus Review » For his followers, and, we hope, anybody else who happens in, C. S. Lewis writes another wonderful Narnian adventure. The setting is familiar. There is the eastern flavour to his make-believe kingdoms and great Aslan the Lion is still Narnia's protector. But for a new hero there is Shasta, a slave boy in the tyrannical land of Calormen, and of unknown parentage, who escapes to the free north with Bree, one of Narnia's talking horses. En route, they meet Aravis, a Calormene princess also in flight because of an impending forced marriage, and together they help snuff out a Calormene plot to attack not only Narnia but its brother land of Archenland, of which Shasta turns out to be a lost prince. A beautifully written tale to read aloud as well, in which C.S. Lewis' talents seem to flower more than ever. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - C. S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898. In 1917 he went to Oxford University, but his studies were interrupted by the First World War, from which he was sent home wounded. One of his friends at Oxford was J.R.R. Tolkien. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was published in 1950. Fascinated by the difference in time between our own world and Narnia, Lewis wrote some of the books in a different order to the events which they portrayed. An example of this is The Magician's Nephew, which details the early history of Narnia and is intended to be read before the others. C.S. Lewis died in 1963.
