Lewis's most interesting Pevensies return to Narnia for a third adventure,
This review is from: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 5) (Paperback)
A book I returned to after nearly 20 years. I didn't have many lasting memories of this one - I think I only remembered the picture pulling the children in at the beginning.
Lewis brings back the two most interesting of his four Pevensies, Edmund and Lucy, for another cacking instalment in the Narnia series, this time a seafaring adventure into unknown lands - quite a change of scene from anything that came before it. Moral lessons and guidance is here as it is in the others. The End of the World sighted at the close (and seen again at the beginning of the next instalment, The Silver Chair) is wonderfully worked out, and this time Aslan is explicitly associated with Jesus Christ and the Christian God.

When you say, 'another cacking instalment,' I assume you did actually intend to use the adjective, 'cracking.' Or was this along the lines of some sort of Freudian slip...?
