Deep underground, a web of evil magic holds a prince in captivity.

Narnia ... where owls speak, where evil weaves a spell ... where sorcery enslaves the land.

Narnia is in peril, and only Eustace and Jill can help. Along with Puddleglum, a gloomy but valiant Marsh-wiggle, they are sent by the mighty lion Aslan to find Prince Rilian, heir to the throne. Their quest leads them past hungry people-eating Giants, and deep into the dark underground. But the true test for this noble band of friends comes when they face an evil witch and her deadly enchantments.

    Several weeks have passed since Eustace returned from his sea adventure with King Caspian in the magical land. Eustace is now back in England attending a boarding school filled with bullies, where the school head has no control over the students. Jill also attends the school. Eustace finds her crying because of the way she is being treated by the bullies. He tries to console her and tells her about the magic land. The two wish they can escape to Narnia. They hear the bullies coming to hurt them, and they run. Suddenly they are transported to the other world. They land on a mountain and Aslan, the magic lion, transports Eustace to Narnia. But before blowing Jill there, he tells her that he brought the two so that they can find the lost son of a king. The king is now old and believes that he will die without leaving an heir to reign in his stead. Aslan gives Jill four signs. First, Eustace will see someone he recognizes from his last trip. He should talk to that person immediately. Second, they should travel north to the land of the giants. Third, they will see a writing there on a stone and should do what the writing says. Fourth, they will recognize the lost prince when he asks them to do something in Aslan's name. Aslan then blows Jill to Narnia where she finds Eustace. The two see a very aged king leaving Narnia on a ship. They are told that the king is Caspian, who Eustace knew during his last visit. Eustace realizes that although only weeks have passed in England since his last adventure, some seventy years have gone by in Narnia. Eustace and Jill also realize that they failed to fulfill their first task, for Caspian has gone. They become involved in an adventure with owls that fly them around on their backs but cannot take them north because owls do not like to fly during the day. The owls tell the children how the prince's mother was killed and how the prince disappeared. They suspect that a wicked witch is involved. The owls take the children to Puddleglum, a scarecrow type being, who is gloomier than his name, who sees bad in everything, but who agrees to help the children fulfill the second requirement of going north to the land of the giants, even though he tells them that their future will certainly be terrible. Several adventures follow. The three pass through a land of stupid giants where stones are thrown. They meet a beautiful lady on a beautiful horse and a knight dressed in black who does not speak. The lady sends them to a house and tells them to say that they are "sent to your Autumn Feast." Jill forgets the third sign about a writing on a wall. Readers will enjoy hearing the details of these adventures. They will also hear the other adventures the two children and Puddleglum had. Who was the beautiful woman? Were the three able to find the prince? Did they save him? Was there a wicked witch? Did King Caspian return and see his son the prince? Did the prince become king? What happened when the two children returned to England? Were they able to beat the bullies? What happened to the head of the school?

  • The Silver Chair (hardcover)
    From Amazon

    It was not disclosed that this book was clearly previously part of a boxed set. The text on the binding & dustjacket clearly indicate this. This should have been disclosed. If it had been, I would not have purchased the item but rather bought the book (as a standalone printing)from another seller.

  • That was fun!
    From Amazon

    I really liked this little book. It was a fun ride and I had no idea what was going to happen. I especially loved the Marsh Wiggle! This was probably my favorite of all of the series. I didn't read the 1st (or 2nd) book The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, but I read all of the other ones.

  • Even though The Silver Chair is the fourth installment, It should be read sixth, after The Voyage of the Dawn Trader.
    From Amazon

    The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven fantasy novels for children written by C. S. Lewis. It is considered a classic of children's literature and is the author's best-known work, having sold over 120 million copies in 41 languages. Written by Lewis between 1949 and 1954 and illustrated by Pauline Baynes. The books contain Christian ideas made easily accessible to young readers. They are not pedantic, however, and their richness of adventure, color, and ideas have made them favorites of children and adults, Christians and non-Christians. In addition to Christian themes, Lewis also borrows characters from Greek and Roman mythology as well as traditional British and Irish fairy tales. Even though The Silver Chair is the fourth installment, It should be read sixth, after The Voyage of the Dawn Trader. Older editions of the book reflect this decision. Lewis grandson later changed the order so that the books were in chronological order. Completed in the spring of 1951 and published in 1953, The Silver Chair is the first Narnia book Lewis wrote without the Pevensie children. In their place, Aslan calls Eustace back to Narnia together with his classmate Jill Pole. There they are given four signs to find Prince Rilian, Caspian's son, who had been kidnapped ten years earlier. Eustace and Jill, with the help of Puddleglum the Marsh-wiggle and many others, face great danger before finding Rilian, who has lost his memory due to enchantment by a silver chair.

  • A Wild Magical Adventure
    From Amazon

    This book is part of The Chronicles of Narnia and involves the children Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole who come into Narnia through the work of Aslan while being chased by bullies at their school. Aslan charges the children with finding Prince Rilian who has disappeared years earlier and gives them four signs to help them in their quest. The fourth involves doing something in the name of Aslan. At one point they find themselves the guests of giants only to later discover that their status will change from guests to items on the menu and they make a difficult escape. The book is written simply but beautifully and is full of strange creatures to beguile and endear or to give one the creeps. Fun reading.
