The Voyage of the Dawn Treader follows the second return to Narnia by Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, the younger two of the four Pevensie children in the first two books of C. S. Lewis’ fantasy classic. Edmund and Lucy are staying with their repulsive cousin Eustace when they all get magically drawn into the painting of a ship in the sea - and ends up in Caspian’s ship, the Dawn Treader. The siblings are delighted to be back in the Narnian world but Eustace is less thrilled. Caspian X, King of Narnia, and his companions which include a talking mouse named Reepicheep, are in a sea voyage to search for the seven lost lords of Narnia. Along with the children, they sailed to the eastern end of the world, being captured by slave traders, conquering a dragon, visiting enchanted islands along the way. An experience that proves to be life-changing to one of the characters who did not believe this alternate universe ever existed.
Recent publishers have labeled this book as the fifth edition in the Chronicles of Narnia series, however, this edition follows the original and preferred numbering scheme of the author.
