This one starts out really strong, with terrible Eustace and perfect, blessed Reepicheep, but by the second time that everybody on the Dawn Treader thinks about how bored they are, I start getting bored and then Aslan is a Lamb in the end and I’m still not Tolkien so I still don’t have a problem with allegory but also come on. Come on, Lewis. You’re not even trying anymore. ( )

Finished reading again with the kids. (I think this is go-around #3.) As always, I am still finding new things I love about this series. ( )

Narnia . . . where a dragon awakens . . . where stars walk the earth . . . where anything can happen.

A king and some unexpected companions embark on a voyage that will take them beyond all known lands. As they sail farther and farther from charted waters, they discover that their quest is more than they imagined and that the world's end is only the beginning. ( )

I enjoyed re-reading this more than re-reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Some great moments of humor (er, humour), and I really enjoyed each of the mini-adventures the crew and passengers of the Dawn Treader experience. ( )

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.

Epigraph
Dedication
To Geoffrey Barfield
First words
There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.
Der var en dreng, der hed To Eustace Clarence Scrubb, og han havde næsten fortjent det. Hans forældre kaldte ham Eustace Clarence, og lærerne kaldte ham Scrubb. Jeg kan ikke fortælle dig, hvad hans venner kaldte ham, for han havde ingen.
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.
