Occurs during the reign of Peter, Susan, Edmond, and Lucy. This book is most different from the other books in the series, because it occurs entirely in Narnia. It's also my favorite of the series. The main characters crack me up!

The Chronicles take a different direction after LWW, and this is a neat parallel story that adds breadth to the land of Narnia.

I really like the Narnia series. This is the third book in the series. It takes place after the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It's a tale about a boy named Shasta and a Narnian named Bree, who is a horse. It tells of their adventure as they try to escape to Narnia.

If you have ever read and enjoyed the Chronicles of Narnia, you will especially enjoy this audio. I love this series of audio books. They are straight readings, not dramatizations. This one is read beautifully by Alex Jennings.
I prefer the original order of the books, which is not how they are packaged . (This one is listed as 3.)
1) The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
2) Prince Caspian
3) The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
4) The Silver Chair
5) The Horse and His Boy
6) The Magician's Nephew
7) The Last Battle

Not only is the Narnia series one of my favorite sets of books, this particular book is my favorite of all the Narnia books. Don't get wound up in the movie - read the books - they'll sweep you away on a wonderful ride of imagination.

Aesome writer, awesome series!

While this is set during the reign of High King Peter, the Pevensies are not the central characters to this tale. This is a child's fantasy at its best--talking horses, the wicked step-parent, the "fairy godmother" character...how I missed this as a child I will never know, but it was very enjoyable as an adult.

Some things are ageless, like the love/hate relationship between Shasta and Aravis. Even in this age of video games, young children would probably love this tale, especially if it is read with them by a parent or grandparent.

Narnia..where horses talk..where treachery is brewing..where destiny awaits. On a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives, they soon find themselves at the center of a terrible battle. It is a battle that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia itself.

Enjoyed this book. It had me guessing all the way through what was going to happen, some parts obvious, some not.

I have read about half of this book and I'm SO confused! I LOVED "The Magician's Nephew" and "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", but this book doesn't even seem like it should be part of the same series!

I just finished and although it did get a little better toward the end, I still didn't like this book.

Narnia, where horses talk and hermits like company, where evil men turn into donkeys, where boys go into battle... and where the adventure begins.
What a great series. I loved it as a child and my son is reading them now!

This is one of my favorites and I enjoy listening to it in the car. I like that it features the Pevensie kids in Narnia when they are grown up kings and queens.

The Focus on the Family Radio Theatre adaptation of C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia are excellent. They are by far my favorite adaptation.

This book is different than the others in the series. This one is about Bree, a Narnian talking horse, who is kidnapped when he was a foal and had become a slave horse to a Calormen lord and was a great war horse, a boy named Shasta, who was kidnapped when he was an infant, a princess name Aravis, who was escaping from an arranged marriage on a talking horse named Hwin. It starts with Bree and Shasta! Bree wants to go home to Narnia and talks Shasta, who wants to escape his fate into going to Narnia. They both agree and start there journey. Along the way they meet up with Aravis and Hwin who are also heading to Narnia. They have some scary things happen but they eventually make it to Narnia where Shasta learns something that changes his life. A fun adventure indeed!

Written in 1952. I read this over and over when I was young, and I took it all very seriously, including the mysterious reason a young boy should not be a slave in a certain house, as intimated on page 11.

It's sort of tattered near the bottom, but nothing major. It's not going to fall apart in your hands while you're reading it, so no worries.
