Prince Caspian
Prince Caspian (Chronicles of Narnia Series #4) - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

I have an impression of each book in my head, and it turns out those impressions are mostly wrong. For some reason I remember Prince Caspian as being a lot of walking in the woods, when in fact the characters don't spend that much time walking in the woods at all.

 

This is one of my favorite in the Narnia series. I especially liked Caspian's backstory (which I had completely forgotten) this time around. It's like a little adventure tale inside an adventure tale.

The Last Battle
The Last Battle (Chronicles of Narnia, #7) - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

Friends, I'm not going to lie, this is a weird book. But I remember liking it the first time I read it. I stayed up late to finish it. There's something about the descriptions of the new lands at the end that I found captivating. Same thing happened to me on this reread.

 

But the rest of the book is so strange. For some reason I thought the bits with the shed were a lot longer than they actually are. Basically from my first reading I only remembered the shed and that people go into it and it's really dark (I don't think these count as spoilers as it's only kind of sort of what actually happens in the book).

 

The allegory gets pretty heavy handed in this book. Moreso than any of the others. And there's that whole bit where

 Susan doesn't end up with the others at the end of it all which is bs.

(spoiler show)

 

Both of the most common reading orders end with this book, which makes sense (the title is literally The Last Battle), but I'm glad I'm not ending my Narnia journey here this time.

Boxen: Childhood Chronicles Before Narnia - C.S. Lewis,W.H. Lewis

This was really interesting to read. I feel like i've been getting to know C. S. Lewis better as i just read what was his diary after his wife's death, A Grief Observed , and then read what he wrote with his brother as a child. It is really impressive writing and complex thinking for a child, although the subject matter is not particularly interesting to me. A lot of it is politics and war, though there is a brazen hussy featured in one story. Haha.

The Lion; The Witch; and The Wardrobe
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis

One of those classic books that I believe every child should read. I think that this would be a good book to read as small groups in 3rd or 4th grade. Or even used as a whole group reading in 5th or 6th grade.
