Not as overtly Christian or misogynistic as it's predecessor. Though women are still portrayed as the weakest links... ( )

We go back to Narnia, to rescue the Country from the evil neighbours. Our original family group has to make some changes, and we get some idea of aging, which isn't usually dealt with in this genre. Not my favourite, but a necessary part of the canon. ( )

I have some issues with Aslan. Sure, he's great when he's around, but you're never certain of his help till the last possible second. Too much majestic roaring, too little explanation of his plans. ( )

"Prince Caspian" is squeal to "The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe. The four siblings find themselves in the sight of danger in their fantasy world Narnia. They vowel to protect this land and have to find themselves in order to overcome the evils of Narnia. Full of imagination and life makes this story a good independent choice for students or even a character trait activity.

Probably the first sequel I ever read. I remember the excitement of reading about characters of whom I thought I'd never hear again. The christian allegory is not present here (to my knowledge) and it was nice that so much changed after the first book. Good stuff. ( )

Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, and it has been told in another book called The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe how they had a remarkable adventure.
Quotations
"You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve," said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor in earth."
