The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Voyage of the Dawn Treader chronicles Lucy and Edmund Pevensieís adventures on the Narnian ship, Dawn Treader. C. S. Lewis writes the story and the other six which comprise Chronicles of Narnia.

The eldest Pevensie daughter, Susan, is accompanying the parents to America. The eldest Pevensie son, Peter, is studying for exams with Professor Digory Kirkeís help. This leaves the youngest Pevensie children without a rudder and they must moor with an aunt and uncle. Anchoring with their odious son, Eustace Clarence Scrubb, is a dull proposition. He is a know-it-all who lacks imagination.

Lucy and Edmundís imagination draws the children into a seascape. One moment, they are staring at a painting of a Narian ship, and the next, they are floundering in the ocean. Fortune turns their way, for a ship plucks the trio(Eustace, too) from the roiling waters. Behold, King Caspian and crew are aboard and Dawn Treader belongs to them. Reepicheep, a talking Narian mouse, is aboard, too.

Reunited friends and, the pain, Eustace sail the mighty seas in search of nine missing Narian Lords and the far Eastern seas, the believed site of Aslanís domain. As they sail, the Dawn Treaderís shipmates encounter mysterious islands, dragons, magicians, sea serpents and other wonderful adventures.

C. S. Lewisís Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a great sea adventure story. The slim novel contains plenty of action to hold the readerís interest. Eustace, may have had no imagination, but Lewis did, and his text reveals it. Dawn Treader docks at many islands, no island is the same, each island and inhabitants are different and spellbinding. Ever wondered what happens to a retired star? How about, what happens on an island where dreams come true? Lewis allows his imagination, sails full, to travel and we, the passengers, have a glorious ride.
