More About the Author

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics, the Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.

From the Back Cover

The Dawn treader will take you to a place you never thought existed.

Narnia... where anything can happen... and where the adventures begin.

The Dawn Treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in centuries. King Caspian has built it for his 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 towards Aslan's country at the End of the World. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voyaging 22 July 2005
The second volume of the Narnia Chronicles closed with the possibility of Lucy and Edmund -- though not their older siblings -- returning to Narnia. "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" makes good on that story, with the intrepid pair (plus a whiny cousin) returning on a strange sea voyage.

After the events of "Prince Caspian," Lucy and Edmund are sent off to stay with their obnoxious cousin Eustace. But when they admire a picture of a strange ship, suddenly all three kids are sucked in -- and land in a Narnian sea. On board the ship is King Caspian, now fully grown, who is determined to find a bunch of knights exiled by his murderous uncle, even if he has to go to the edge of the world (literally).

Lucy and Edmund are thrilled to be back in Narnia again, but Eustance proceeds to make trouble any way he can, complaining and causing trouble among the crew. But there are problems more horrifying than any of them can guess, from dragons to sinister "gold water" to a region filled with their worst nightmares.

"The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is one of Lewis's most original and tightly-written Narnian adventures. It's also a bit of a break from form. After two books of battles against evil tyrants, "Voyage" simply goes where no man/woman/mouse has gone before, and gives us a view of the Narnian world as more than one isolated little region.

And in some ways, it's also the darkest Chronicle. Lewis explores the theme of greed here -- greed for power, beauty, money and magic -- and has some scenes both chilling and majestic. But his archly humorous style peeks through in several places, whether it's pompous mouse Reepicheep or tea with a reclusive old wizard.

Edmund and Lucy are their usual plucky selves, albeit a bit more mature than before.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read. 29 Oct 2000
By A Customer
To fully understand this book you need to have read Prince Caspian, & the lion the witch & the wardrobe. It is my favourite book of the Narnia chronicles, as there are some hilarious moments, the mice are very funny!! It is set about 30 - 40 years ago, & you can tell that straight away!! The book has been written carefully, using good decripitions. It is very drawing & it is hard to put down. A really good Book.

I particularly love this book (and The Silver Chair)out of all the Narnia Chronicles because I went to a progressive school just like that of Eustace Scrubb. Eustace is the horrid cousin of two of the original four who found their way into Narnia in The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe, and in this sequel to Prince Caspian all three are sucked into a picture in the spare room wall to join Caspian in his quest. He is searching for the seven seafaring Lords who left his wicked Uncle Miraz to search for the end of the world.
There are many marvellous adventures, including a fight with a sea-serpent and an island-pool that turns everything to gold, but the best chapters concern the reform of Eustace after greed turns him into a dragon.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC FUN 17 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sea-faring action and adventure with Edmund, Lucy, their rather annoying cousin Eustace and Prince Caspian.
The picture in the room of their Aunt and Uncle's home draws Lucy and Edmund back to Narnia. Caspian has called them and Narnia needs their help. However, pompous cousin Eustace has also been sucked into the picture and he's in for the adventure of a lifetime and some important lessons to learn!
The voyage on the Prince's Dawn Treader takes the adventurers all the way to the end of the world - to Aslan's own land and brings them into contact with many strange people and places along the way.
Beautiful spiritual exploration or just plain fantastic, imaginative fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Quest to the Edge of the World 7 Jun 2003
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
When Caspian became king, he made a pledge to track down the seven friends of his father that had been sent to explore the unknown waters beyond the Lone Islands. After establishing peace, he sets off and is aided in his quest by Edmund, Lucy, and their cousin Eustace, who arrive from England via a magic picture. Bravely sailing into the unknown (occasionally prodded by the mouse Reepicheep), they encounter dragons, sea creatures, magic, and lots of danger. Will they be able to find the seven Lords?
I love this book in the series, probably partially because it is set at sea. The story is episodic in nature, but the quest and information found along the way keep things moving forward. And there is plenty of action and adventure to keep anyone entertained. Lewis really used his imagination to create some of the locals where the boat stops, and it's fun seeing what he came up with. I especially love the Dufflepuds, although I'm glad I never have had a conversation with them.
As with any series, there are little things you'll pick up on if you read them in order. However, it's not strictly necessarily. Anyone looking for a fantasy adventure will love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece 10 Oct 2005
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
Whilst not as mythic as either Lion, Witch and Wardrobe or Magician's Nephew, this is the story I return to over the (many too many) years since i first read the books.
It shows that the format of the story evolves with fewer of the original four children entering Narnia along with their sceptical cousin, who undergoes real growth during the story, as do the other children.
Clearly a Narnia take on Homer's Odyssey, this is none the less an excellent read.
