Lucy and Edmund, with their dreadful cousin Eustace, get magically pulled into a painting of a ship at sea. That ship is the Dawn Treader, and on board is Caspian, King of Narnia. He and his companions, including Reepicheep, the valiant warrior mouse, are searching for seven lost lords of Narnia, and their voyage will take them to the edge of the world. Their adventures include being captured by slave traders, a much-too-close encounter with a dragon, and visits to many enchanted islands, including the place where dreams come true. -Goodreads
My Rating: 5/5
|This is definitely my second-favourite of the series. I used to listen to it over and over again on tape as a kid and now, reading it once more on the page, I was delighted to see that it has lost none of its magic. |
One thing I would say is slightly disappointing is the end of the book – I like there to be some sort of climax but there was nothing really. I appreciated the beauty in the final scenes but there was nothing exciting the came before them really.
