The fifth book published in the Narnia series, this book is written largely from the point of view of Shasta, a young boy in Calormen. As it takes place during the reign of High King Peter, it probably fits best in the reading order immediately following The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. While its prime audience is children aged 8 to about 11, the story has enough depth to make it a satisfying, if short, read for even adult readers, and the characters show realistic development over the course of the book.

This book is unique in the series, in that the viewpoint characters do not originate in our world, but instead are native to the world of Narnia.
