The Silver Chair

The second book with Eustace Scrubb and the first with Jill Pole, and of course, the only one with the one and only, ever-lovable Puddleglum, The Silver Chair is a step above the other Narnia books. Jill’s struggles with belief, Puddleglum’s indomitable fighting spirit, and Eustace’s attempts at chivalry combine into an adorable three-person journey. From the heights of heavenly mountains down to the depths of the earth and back again to the warm sunshine, The Silver Chair is a story about believing in the unseeable.

“‘You would not have called to me unless I had been calling to you,’ said the Lion.”

C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair

A series that grows with its readers, this is a 3 on the 5-star Reading System

C.S. Lewis always shines best when writing of the mysterious, the unknown, the wondrous, and the unreachable. This is C.S. Lewis’s genius of The Great Divorce distilled into a Narnia story.

“I’m on Aslan’s side even if there isn’t any Aslan to lead it. I’m going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn’t any Narnia.”
