Book review: Voyage of the Dawn Treader (Chronicles of Narnia)

Name of the book: Chronicles of Narnia – The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Author: CS LEWIS
Summary of the book:
The book is continuation of the book “Narnia – Prince Caspian”. An adventure from beginning to end. This time out of the four, Edmund and Lucy go with the new kid Eustace who has never been to Narnia (An imaginary world which centers around four kids namely Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy).
Our characters (Edmund, Lucy and Eustace for the present) when staying with their aunt (Eustace’s mother) and uncle, stumble upon an old painting of an old ship which the kids confirm to be “Narnian”. Naturally, when they look into it with Eustace the ship seems to move and they are sucked into the painting to Narnia, Where they are rescued to the ship ‘Dawn Treader’ which is set to the East to find seven islands at the world’s End of Narnian land and the End itself. The ship is boarded by Prince Caspian who meets the duo Edmund and Lucy for the second time
after three years, and also Reepchip the noble mouse knight. They discover the seven islands each with a multitude of adventures and meeting new people and also the “End”. The children all return to their normal world with Eustace learning many lessons about life. Another marvellous tale from C S Lewis.

Book Highlight



Told in diary form by an irresistible heroine, this playful and perceptive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the May Bird trilogy sparkles with science, myth, magic, and the strange beauty of the everyday marvels we sometimes forget to notice.

Spirited, restless Gracie Lockwood has lived in Cliffden, Maine, her whole life. She’s a typical girl in an atypical world: one where sasquatches helped to win the Civil War, where dragons glide over Route 1 on their way south for the winter (sometimes burning down a T.J. Maxx or an Applebee’s along the way), where giants hide in caves near LA and mermaids hunt along the beaches, and where Dark Clouds come for people when they die.

To Gracie it’s all pretty ho-hum…until a Cloud comes looking for her little brother Sam, turning her small-town life upside down. Determined to protect Sam against all odds, her parents pack the family into a used Winnebago and set out on an epic search for a safe place that most people say doesn’t exist: The Extraordinary World. It’s rumored to lie at the ends of the earth, and no one has ever made it there and lived to tell the tale. To reach it, the Lockwoods will have to learn to believe in each other—and to trust that the world holds more possibilities than they’ve ever imagined.
