The Silver Chair

"I wish I was home," said Jill. 

Eustace nodded, saying nothing and bit his lip. 

"I have come," said a deep voice behind them. They turned and saw the Lion himself, so bright and real and strong that everything else began to look pale and shadowy compared with him. In less time than it takes to breathe Jill forgot about the dead King of Narnia, and remembered only how she had made Eustace fall over the cliff, and how she had helped to muff nearly all the signs, and about all the snappings and quarellings. And she wanted to say "I'm sorry" but she could not speak. Then the Lion drew them toward him with his eyes and bent down and touched their pale faces with his tongue and said:

"Think of that no more. I will not always be scolding. You have done the work for which I sent you into Narnia." 

- The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis


  1. I just buzzed through this book. Always really liked the BBC mini-series with Tom Baker as Puddleglum. :-)

    1. Ah! I loved that mini-series, but never realized it was Tom Baker as Puddleglum.

      I am interested to see what the new film of this movie will be like too.
