Item Description...
A brand new Narnia adventure based on characters originally featured in C.S. Lewis's The Silver Chair.

Narnia: a world made by magic from the start of time, full of marvelous creatures, talking beasts, and trees that sometimes get up and dance. And now the door to this magical world is opened up again with a brand new story. Based on the beloved characters introducted by C. S. Lewis in The Chronicles of Narnia, The Giant Surprise presents a new adventure specially created for much younger children. Now pull on your boots ... and splash through the muddy marshlands, home to the web-footed, web-fingered Marsh-wiggles. Meet Puddleglum, the most famous of them all. Get to know his niece, Lally, the brave little Wigglet, as together they help the marsh mice challenge the roaring, rock-throwing, not-so-clever giants of Shribble Gorge!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Love the art  Mar 25, 2007
The story was okay for this book. Nothing special. However, Humphries' artwork is beautiful. His watercolor is amazing. A big fan of his. I recommend this book for art lovers. But if you want a great story, then I wouldn't suggest it.
Narnian Glurge, nothing more  Jan 4, 2007
I, too, have to agree with the consensus that the book is nothing special, and only receives attention because it cashes in on the Narnia franchise at a time when Narnia is coming once again to the public's attention. At best, it's cute and the illustrations are pretty. At worst, the story is rather silly and nothing special.

My children are young -- ages 2, 4 and 6 -- and they're big on hearing the stories they love read to them over and over again. They've heard this book once, and have never given it a second glance since.
Flat, predictable, and utterly undistinguished  Oct 2, 2006
C.S.Lewis's name is prominently mentioned on the cover, but this "Narnia Story" has noting to do with Lewis, or Narnia (apart from stealing the names of some characters!).

It is bad enough to publish a "Narnia" story with Aslan deleted and all Christian resonances eliminated, but this story is also boring, bland and shallow.

One to avoid.
I liked it!!!  Dec 11, 2005
My brother got this book for me for my birthday. My family all likes Narnia, and we couldn't wait to see the movie. I like the Narnia storyline, but the big books are too hard for me. But I saw the old movies, and this book had people from the Silver Chare. This book was pretty funny, because Puddleglum's in it. I think little kids who think the big books are too hard should first start with something like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and then read this.
A Branding Abomination  Dec 7, 2005
Narnia without CS Lewis? A Narnain story without the complex themes Lewis wove in the Chronicles. Rubbish!

One reviewer wrote this:
"I suppose that what would bother Lewis (and what should bother us) is not that the book isn't "Christian," but that it isn't any good. It's flat, predictable, and utterly undistinguished. It is hard to imagine that a story this lifeless would have been published had there been no Narnia hook."

Let this be the last attempt to exploit the Lewis legacy.
