We have been reading through The Chronicles of Narnia with our kids for fun. This is the 4th book, and at this point the 2nd worst in my opinion. The story line was interesting, but did not seem to be as well written as some of the others. My kids did seem to enjoy it probably more than I did, so as a read aloud for kids it is really good. It is mild so not a lot of extra explanation is necessary. It is also fun to talk through and see the allegorical themes of following God even when others do not, and trusting in what you cannot see. Those two things struck me the most. The subtle themes are the redeeming qualities of this book. I give it 3 stars.
