Meet Prince Caspian, a boy who has become intrigued in stories of Old Narnia from his nurse. Where beasts can run and talk freely. He lives in the royal castle, where the current king strictly forbids talk about Old Narnia from the kingdoms backstory. The four Penvensies are transported to Narnia once again by Susan's own magic horn. It turns out that the beasts and men are in war, and the children are needed to help. Will the great land of Talking Beasts be restored to its glory? Or will the cruel men stay in reign? Read and find out. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as fantasy being my favorite genre and the four children we're back. I was fine with Shasta in the last book, but it is definetly good to have the original children back. I reccomend this book to everyone, as it was a great read and i couldn't put it down. ( )

This book would be good to use when talking about fighting for what is right even against the odds. I think students will like this book because the main character is relatable and the fantasy creatures are intriguing. ( )

Just don't remember this one very much. But then, I don't particularly like power struggles and questions of lineage. Still, of course one can't skip it, or even rate it differently, imo. ( )

Prince Caspian wasn't as good as the first book in the Narnia series. It was a little slow in parts, and the resolution was even simpler than in the previous book. However, it was still enjoyable most of the way through. ( )

Out of all the scenes in this book, the one that stands out to me is when the Pevensies realize where they are. I've always loved that scene without ever being able to place exactly why. This isn't my favorite book, because so much of it is back story, but it does have some of my favorite moments: Edmund's electric torch, Peter dueling Miraz, and Susan and Lucy's adventure with Aslan.

First words
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.
"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."
