The Dawn Treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in centuries. King Caspian has built it for his first voyage to find the seven lords, good men whom his evil uncle Miraz banished when he usurped the throne. The journey takes Edmund, Lucy, their cousin Eustace, and Caspian to the Eastern Islands, beyond the Silver Sea, toward Aslan's country at the End of the World.
This was the third book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the fifth book in the series.
Don't miss any of the books in C.S. Lewis' classic Chronicles of Narnia series.

This was my favorite book out of all 7. I liked the shorter stories that went along with each adventure. I also liked how Eustace changes as the book goes on. The imagery Lewis creates is amazing, espcially toward the end.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader picks up presumably not long after thhe four Pevensies returned from Narnia at the end of Prince Caspian. While Peter goes to study with the famous Professor Kirk and Susan visits America with their parents, Edmund and Lucy are enduring an unpleasant stay with their disagreeable cousin Eustace Scrubb. Things get complicated whent he three children are suddenly sucked into a painting of a ship sailing one of the seven seas. They find themselves aboard the Dawn Treader, King Caspian's personal ship. Caspian reveals that he is on a quest to find sevenn Narnian lords banished during the reign of his tyranical uncle Miraz and return them to Narnia. While Edmund and Lucy are overjoyed to be back in Narnia, the pampered Eustace wants nothing more than to go back home. Will the crew of the Dawn Treader be able to complete their quest? And will Eustace drive them all crazy?
This was an excellent production. Derek Jacobi does a good job of bringing the various characters to life. About my only complaint? is his portrayal of Reepicheep, but since he's a talking mouse... Needless to say I couldn't put this one down.
I believe this book is unexpected. Growing up I knew of these books but never read them, then as a teenager the movies came out, I new the idea behind these books basically was God. But I had no idea how powerful the events in these books where. After reading this one in particular. I come to the conclusion that C.S. Lewis wrote these books not only with symbols of Christianity woven in the pages, but as a way to show Jesus's caricature. For a child who has read these books and has grown up and picked up a bible, a worm comfort, like that of a familiarity of a mothers smell, will come over you. As for me, it was a beautiful reunion in inverse. Reading these children's books I feel like a child being lead for the first time through an adventure that will take me to the end of this world and into an unknown, with the greatest companion ever to be desired.
