The Horse and His Boy

Our rating: *****

When Shasta, a slave in Calormen tries to escape to Narnia, he is shown the way by a Narnian horse, Breehy-Hinny-Brinny-Hoohy-Hah. Bree for short. Traveling with them are Aravis and her horse, Hwin. On their way, Shasta is mistaken for a runaway prince, and Aravis uncovers a plot against Narnia and its neighbor, Archenland. In the race to save Archenland, Shasta and Aravis must cross the desert and alert King Lune to the threat of invasion.

This is one of my favorite Narnia books. I like it a little better than The Lion, the Witch and Wardrobe, but not as well as The Magician’s Nephew and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Plenty of action, enough tense moments to allow you to enjoy it, (but not enough to scare you silly) and some great characters.

  1. I used to think that The Horse and His Boy was the worst in the series, but re-read it years later to find it very exciting. However, it is my opinion that The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was better.

  2. I like this book. I think the Chronicles of Narnia is one of the best book series!

  3. It is a very good book. I really like all the books, Way to go C. S. Lewis, Jack, or Jacksie.
