Silver Chair Study Guide
Book 6 in the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis.
On the run from bullies at their nasty school, Eustace and Jill Pole suddenly find as escape into Narnia, but they become separated. Jill meets Aslan, who tells her they have a task to accomplish and gives her four signs to memorize to help accomplish their task. When Jill is reunited with Eustace, they learn that King Caspian's son Prince Rilian has vanished, and they are to find him and return him to Narnia. With the help of a very gloomy Marsh-wiggle, they set out to find the prince, but they soon find themselves forgetting to repeat the four signs. And when they are captured and led away to a deep underground kingdom, it looks as if they may have failed completely at Aslan's task.
