THE SILVER CHAIR
The Chronicles of Narnia
Journeying to the wild lands of the north, the friends and their companion Puddleglum battle mighty storms and encounter a race of giants who like nothing better than a tasty snack--of human children! Searching deep underground in the grim land of the Earthmen, they encounter the wicked Green Lady who has evil plans to overthrow King Caspian and become Queen of Narnia.
This acclaimed BBC Radio Dramatization perfectly captures the enchanted world where our young heroes must yet again struggle with the forces of darkness. With a stellar cast, authentic sound effects and stirring music, The Silver Chair will warm and engage the hearts of children and adults alike.
Narnia ... where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans, where a prince is put under an evil spell ... and where the adventure begins. Eustace and Jill escape from the bullies at school through a strange door in the wall, which, for once, is unlocked. It leads to the open moor . . . or does it? Once again Aslan has a task for the children, and Narnia needs them. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, they pursue the quest that brings them face to face with the evil Witch. She must be defeated if Prince Rilian is to be saved.
