“This book is about prince Caspian, Edmund, Lucy, their cousin Eustace, and the rest of the Caspian's crew that is on a voyage to find the seven missing lords. The setting of this book is mostly in the sea (islands). This book is perfect for people who likes action and adventures. ”Michelle Kim wrote this review Friday, September 7, 2012.

“Lucy and Edmund exspect their summer holiday to be a drag. They are spending it with Eaustace, a bully and a cousin. Lucy gets a chamber with a fanticiful painting on the wall. Soon the three children find themselves in the picture, in the middle of the sea! Luckily they find the ship in the distance, and are pulled up. What a suprize when they find they are in Narnia, and Caspian is on the ship! They join him on his quest to find the seven lords his uncle banished long ago. Will the Lion protect them on this fatefull journey?”monarch wrote this review Thursday, September 6, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“It took a lot longer to finish this volume, and I think it is because its plot is weak. I wasn't very interested in Caspian's voyage to find the 7 missing lords. Some of the stops on the way - like the dragon - were interesting, but others - like the retired stars (seems to come out of nowhere, but perhaps Lewis was delving into mythology I know nothing about) - were not. The ending is rather abrupt and unresolved as well, but whenever Aslan steps in, that's simply what happens (hah, I can't believe Lewis denied making any serious religious connotations with this series). ”Captain Blackbird wrote this review Sunday, August 26, 2012.

“This story features Edmund and Lucy – the two youngest Pevensie children – and their irritating cousin, a boy “ called Eustace Clarance Scrubb and he almost deserved it…” (which is a cracking opening line! :lol: ). Peter is staying with Professor Kirke (with whom the children stayed in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Susan is in America with her parents, having both been told by Aslan at the end of Prince Caspian that they wouldn’t come to Narnia again.
Edmund and Lucy are sent to stay with their cousin Eustace whilst their parents are away. He’s a nasty, spoilt boy and they don’t relish the prospect of their stay at all. One day they are in Lucy’s room arguing about a picture of a boat hanging on the bedroom wall, which Lucy says looks like a Narnian vessel and Eustace is taking the rise out of them as, of course, he doesn’t believe in the existence of Narnia. However, the picture is a door to Narnia and soon draws the children in!
On the ship – the Dawn Treader – they find King Caspian. He is on a journey to find the end of the world in order to find out what happened to the seven Lords sent out by his evil uncle Miraz (whom Caspian and the Pevensies defeated in the previous book) who failed to return. Caspian asks the children to come along, and so begins their adventure – and the reformation of Eustace!
I think this is probably my third favourite of the Narnia books (the first two faves being The Lion, the Witch the Wardrobe and The Magician’s Nephew). The journey takes them on many adventures, told as standalone stories with a moral. (
One thing that amused me was the way that Eustace’s parents are described ‘progressively’ as “up-to-date and advanced people [who were] vegetarians, non-smokers and teetotallers and wore a special kind of underclothes”!
