This is the last book of The Chronicles of Narnia and I think that it was really good and summed up the entire series perfectly. Both boys, girls, and grownups who have always dreamed of traveling to another world and having a great adventure will love this book and the rest of the books in the series.
Trouble is arising in Narnia once again and Jill and Eustace are also once again summoned back into Narnia by Aslan. This time, their adventure takes them right into the heart of Narnia where a false Aslan lies, deceiving all of the creatures and even causing some to turn against the true Aslan.
They must help the King Tirian of Narnia prove to everyone who the real Aslan is and who is the imposter. But it won't be easy. "The stars never lie, but men and beasts do," according to Roonwit the centaur. Will the other beasts choose to believe in the real Aslan? What lies inside the stable door? Will this be our last time in Narnia forever?
My favorite part in this book is when everyone is venturing into the new Narnia (which is actually the real Narnia) and they're laughing and running and having a lot of fun. It just sounded like they were having so much! I really wanted to be there in that moment and at that time.
