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.
A wild gallop for freedom-on a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. They are trying to escape their terrible lives and find themselves in a terrible battle that will decide their and Narnia's fate. A great book. Great gift!
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.
