The first chapter begins with a painting of a ship on the ocean that comes to life into the room - the adventure begins! ( )

Eustace is a horrible little boy, who is changed by his adventure. I liked the fact that his parents were the only ones not happy with the change. They were the ones who made him so dis-likable to begin with. I enjoyed the journal entries from Eustace's point of view. Aslan is much more an active participant in this story. ( )

Each Narnia book gets better and better. In this case we are introduced to Eustace Scrubb, a thoroughly unpleasant cousin of Edmond and Lucy.

They all go to Narnia, have adventures with Caspian and then go back to England.

I find it amazing how simple and concise these stories are and yet just how engaging and wonderful at the same time. I would find myself thinking Well, what if..., or How would this..." and I would have to pull myself back and remember that Lewis was writing this primarily for children.

And yet I was never bored, nor did I ever roll my eyes at a simplification. This was great writing. And it really shows." ( )

This book, like the movies, has been my favorite so far. It had the most adventure. I'm excited to start reading books that have no movies (or ones I've seen). ( )

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.
