This book would be good to use when talking about sea adventure. I think students will like this book because of the characters and the strange adventure they go on. ( )

I always liked following the map around all the stops. A series of sort of separate adventures makes for a fun read. ( )

How embarrassed I feel to admit that I haven’t read this book before now? Very embarrassed. It’s been recommended to me a million times. But the truth is that sequels often disappoint me; it’s hard for a sequel to live up to the original book.

VDT lives up to the original book. I would even say (gasp!) that it surpasses the original book. Crazy.

Action. Adventure. Bad guys. Good guys. Good guys who are a little bad. Bad guys who are a little good. Great plot. And all aboard a ship. Fabulous. ( )

The voyage of the Dawn treader is about Lucy and Edmond living with their intolerable cousin Eustace.He does not believe in Narnia at all, and thinks and Lucy have made up their own secret imaginary country. He does not know that Narnia is real and Lucy in Edmond have been to it already two times. Somehow the three children all get transported into Narnia in a magical way. And Eustace will have to deal with it and all the adventures that will come. It is an amazing story and I love how Lucy in Edmond come back again and meet Caspian the prince that they met in the last book. I love adventure and in this book they have to defeat some dark in the world that is trying to take over Narnia. I hope you enjoy this book! ( )

This book was much more interesting than the first two in the Narnia series. There weren't any battles and there wasn't any real fighting. The main characters still had lots of adventures, but they were fun, exciting adventures rather than kill-the-bad-guys adventures. ( )

As in many other of Mr. Lewis' books, one finds a strong poetic sense and awareness of the loveliness and mystery of a universe which cannot be wholly grasped by common sense.

To Geoffrey Barfield
First words
There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.
Quotations
And then all the schoolboys joined in because they also liked processions and felt that the more noise and disturbance there was the less likely they would be to have any school that morning.
What awaited them on this island was going to concern Eustace more than anyone else, but it cannot be told in his words because after September 11 he forgot about keeping his diary for a long time.

Book description
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.
