YMMV / The Horse and His Boy

  • Cult Classic: The Horse and His Boy is definitely the odd book out in the Narnia series, as it's not part of the primary plot line (instead serving as a side-story taking place during The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe's late Time Skip), does not star any Earth children traveling to Narnia, and can be removed entirely from the series without leaving any holes. And yet, it has a very loyal following who like it because it's the Oddball in the Series.
