Note: This post reviews the fifth book of The Chronicles of Narnia series. You may like to read the first four books in the series, The Magician’s Nephew, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Horse and His Boy, and Prince Caspian before reading this review.
For seven weeks, I will be reviewing The Chronicles of Narnia, a classic in my opinion. I’ve lost track of how many times I have read these books. Hopefully my reviews will give you a glimpse of why I love these books so much, and maybe even convince you to read them if you haven’t already.
The two youngest Pevensies, Edmund and Lucy, return to Narnia for one final adventure – and their miserable cousin, Eustace, accidentally tags along. Edmund and Lucy are reunited with their friend, Caspian, who is several years older by now. This tale is different from the rest of the series because it primarily takes place on a ship, The Dawn Treader.
Edmund, Lucy, and Caspian encounter one adventure after another – but self-centered Eustace has the most life-altering adventure of all. After undergoing both physical and emotional changes, Eustace becomes an entirely different person, much to the delight of his cousins.
This is a fun summer read that invites you to join these characters as they journey to the ends of the earth and beyond!
