    well isnt that just a nice looking, nonconventional ebook!

  • Eustace says:

    Why do they keep making the mistake that WW is LOTGK? She isn’t.

    • Bother Eustace says:

      I saw that too! It says Jadis is "completely evil, she is also very dangerous, even in the Silver Chair." Um, really? She’s not in the Silver Chair. Unless they mean the small reference made to her in the Parliament of Owls. :\

      But this e-book looks cool! I don’t have an apple device, though.

  • TrueNarnianWithWill says:

    Jadis: "Completely evil, she is also very dangerous, even in the silver chair" WHATS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN!?!?!??! (Narnia quote :))

    • SnowingRoses says:

      It means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I have a Harper Collins edition of the CoN, and in the beginning, it has a list of CoN characters, along with a short description. This is the same one. Nothing new, same old thing

  • Drelborn says:

    The quote about Jadis being in the Silver Chair actually comes from the Harper-Collins editions of the The Chronicles of Narnia (at least the set I have). And I’ve had that set ever since I first read the books, so it’s not new. I guess most people think that Puddleglum’s reference to the Lady of the Green Kirtle being of the same type as the White Witch means they are actually the same.

  • SnowingRoses says:

    I feel myself quickly becoming materialistic. I want it soooo bad right now!
    Resist temptation, resist temptation, resist temptation…
    Can’t resist!!! *adds ebook to her Christmas Wish List*

    • Pepper Darcy says:

      I don’t blame you! it looks stinkin’ nice! And I’m not even into those sorts of things (ebooks, I like the solid, tangible paper) But THAT looks sooo cool! Wow, what pathetic language I use 🙂 ‘cool’ 🙂 But if I had an ipad or that stuff, I would SO enter this too 😀

      • Pepper Darcy says:

        bytheway, I’m not saying that people with electronics are goofy. I have a laptop and an ipod, and I LOVE my ipod. I think a cell phone would be neat 🙂 I just meant I’m not into things like kindle or e-books. I’m too afraid of losing the info 🙂 (comes from an author who has lost millions of pages of story to crashing computers)

  • Pepper Darcy says:

    I don’t know, I think it’s so easy for people to mistake the Lady of the Green Kirtle as Jadis. I, hardcore, Narnia BOOK fan, though for nine years that it WAS Jadis, just making herself looks different. On one hand it *could* make sense since someone like Jadis wouldn’t really give up… but I’m not so sure it’s really Jadis in SC. It’s probably a new witch. Though on another hand, why have it be Jadis, the WW, and them trying to revive her in PC (book) and then suddenly throw in a new/different character that has no background.

    Oh well. I don’t know who it was– Jadis or another girl who was LotGK, so I’m just saying how easy it would be to confuse those sorts of people (like me):)

    • Marianne says:

      I agree with Pepper Darcy. Confusing LotGK and WW is easy and has been done since the dawn of time. I don’t believe (anymore) they’re the same character, but in the readers mind they very well could be.

      AND if the film makers mix them, in my very humble opinion it’s not the ultimate sin. Sometimes you guys are too jumpy. 😉

  • for narnia and the north says:

    Yeah, one line in SC might add to the confusion about Jadis. I forget now, but I think it was an owl who told Jill and Eustace about the White Witch and they say that they think the LOTGK was "of the same sort/kind/etc." can’t remember the exact wording but if you don’t read it carefully, it’s possible to misinterpret that and think Jadis IS the LOTGK

  • LoyalNarnian says:

    Why does it say Voyage of the Dawn Treader on The Magician’s Nephew book pages? That is clearly not the Dawn Treader with Jadis on the carriage and Aslan creating Narnia!

  • Mangolite says:

    This is all messed up. If Harper Collins is changing the books to match the movies, this is a very grave and great sin. With the screen caps above, everything about it are wrong. The pictures of Jadis and Aslan are from the "Magician’s Nephew" (including the passage of Aslan breathing Narnia to life) which has nothing to do with "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." I know that there are some differences between the American publication and the British publications, but if these images are true, especially with the Jadis as being Aslan’s main nemesis, it is blatant manipulation of the original work.

    I disagree with those who said that these screen caps are only a list of Narnian characters. If it is, then Jadis is only in TMN, the WW is in LWW, and LOTGK is in the SC. I may have not read the Chronicles of Narnia multiple times, but I do not forget what were from the original prints before the movies being made.

  • Alassiel says:

    Um, isn’t Jadis the last queen of Charn, not Charm? I hope they correct the misprint.

  • Narnian at Heart says:

    cooooooooooooooooooooooooollllll

  • Reepicheep says:

    This will be bound to have the film rake in some cash! I really want this one to be successful so bad!

  • nhaziqahkeynes says:

    omg,
    i tried to tap to see the answer,
    but it just changed to first picture,
    and jadis does not appear in The Silver Chair

  • marta says:

    i hope the therd narnia is beter than the frost one and secnd one
