Fully dramatized and produced with cinema-quality sound design and music, each title in Radio Theatre's Chronicles of Narnia is now available in a travel-friendly size. Hosted by Douglas Gresham, stepson of C. S. Lewis, these timeless classics have mesmerized millions around the world. Upon entering an enchanted world called Narnia, four ordinary children learn extraordinary lessons in courage, self-sacrifice, friendship, and honor. Brought to life in London by a cast of more than 100 actors, including award-winners Paul Scofield, David Suchet, and Ron Moody, the 7-part Chronicles of Narnia provides over 22 hours of exhilaring listening entertainment.

A remarkable adventure for the imagination, The Horse and His Boy tells the story of a young boy named Shasta with a mysterious past, his escape from a life of slavery, and the talking horse who launches the adventure. As Shasta and Bree join forces, they find themselves escaping with a runaway princess and her talking horse, being pitted against a mad prince, and coming face to face with a terrifying lion.

Faithfully adapted from C. S. Lewis' third novel in The Chronicles of Narnia, this Focus on the Family Radio Theatre presentation features some of England's finest actors, an award-winning production team, and film-quality sound effects.

      This book is kind of boring. The way it's written is so dated and boring that I couldn't finish, though if I did, I'm sure it would've been okay.

          If you ever read this book you will know what I will say. This is my favorite book hands down even better than the Voage of The Dawn Treader. I reccomend this book to all of you.

            I love this book because it sets the pace for the rest of the series. It is full of mystery and humor; C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors- he did a great job with this series.

                i read it but it's a little bit too old-timey if you know what i mean here. It's still pretty good though
