Fleeing a cruel master, orphan Shasta teams up with two talking horses and an arrogant, aristocratic girl on the run from a forced marriage. Bickering among themselves, the four adventurers face many dangers. Their destination is Narnia (first introduced in Lewis's THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE), a land where dwarves, giants, centaurs, talking animals, and humans live in freedom and harmony. With crisp pacing and accent, Alex Jennings heightens drama and illuminates humor in perfect measure. He brings sprightly characters to life with obvious affection. Like other books in the Narnia series, this one can be enjoyed as a simple fantasy adventure; for others, Lewis's allegorical Christian message will be of interest. E.S.
