The Horse and His Boy
by C.S. Lewis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the 3rd story in the Chronicles of Narnia and takes us away from Narnia and the familiar characters to tell the story of Shasta, a boy who was taken in by a fisherman when he was found as an infant in a boat that drifted ashore. Queen Susan and her siblings do play a role here, but it is a supporting one. I was struck by how Christ-like Aslan is in this story. It was an exciting adventure and had the same delightful narrative style as The Magician's Nephew and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
This is one of my Classics Club titles and counts toward the Back to the Classics 2018 Challenge as a children's classic.
