Eustace and Jill don't remember all the signs and directions given by the great lion Aslan, but he nonetheless guides them through their adventure in Narnia in search of the missing Prince Rilian. This sixth in Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia series easily stands alone, particularly with its phenomenal production attributes. Perfect casting choices render every character to the letter, complete with background mumblings and assorted nonvocal sounds. Musical interludes both introduce segments and provide background tone, while exquisitely chosen sound effects lend a realism the listener will not believe came from a studio. Lewis's Chronicles have been fresh and compelling since he wrote them 50 years ago; this production achieves an equal standard for their treatment in audio.

Grade 4-7-Book six of C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia series is dramatized here by the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre. The presentation includes the voices of approximately 24 English actors and actresses, a narrator, sound effects and background music. The voices are crisp and clear, and the characters are well delineated. The only flaws are the annoying and awkward grunts, groans, and sighs that are part of the sound effects. Douglas Gresham, Lewis's stepson, narrates the prologue and epilogue. There is excitement in the air as Eustace Scrubb's and Jill Pole's mission to save Prince Rilian from the evil Emerald Witch unfolds. As they escape from school bullies on earth, they are summoned by the great lion, Aslan, and given four signs to follow in their quest to bring the prince back to his aging father, King Caspian. Listeners will experience the cold and dark of the treacherous lands that Eustace and Jill traverse in this action-packed adventure that draws to a satisfying conclusion. A good purchase for libraries with C.S. Lewis fans.
