Meet the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.


Pauline Baynes has produced hundreds of wonderful illustrations for the seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia. In 1968 she was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for her outstanding contribution to children's literature.

This is a book I've been reading to my kids for the last several weeks. They were eager to start reading it after we rented the movie one night. They all liked the book very much, and even though it is different from the movie in many instances, they still found it very enjoyable in its own right. This book continues the story of Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, who are staying with an aunt and uncle while the rest of their family takes a trip to America. Their cousin Eustace despises them and their stories of Narnia. One afternoon Eustace finds himself drawn with his cousins into a painting in Lucy's bedroom, and they are all whisked off to Narnia for an adventurous sea voyage. I don't think I have ever met a more offensive and whining character than Eustace. I find it so funny that Lewis named the character Eustace, because Useless Eustace describes him perfectly at the beginning of the book. Happily, Eustace goes through some miraculous transformations, physically and socially, during the children's adventures, and ends up to be a very useful boy at the end. Reepicheep, the courageous mouse, also makes this book quite memorable. He is always daring the crew of the Dawn Treader to keep sailing forward, and never seems to know the meaning of the words doubt and fear. Just like Lucy, I want to pick him up and just hug the stuffing out of him, but that would be quite disrespectful behavior towards such a gallant knight!

I got this to read for a second time right before the movie came out. It was this series of books that I first really found a passion for reading. This installment sees the two younger Pevensie children tossed back into Narnia with a barty cousin, and linking up again with now King Caspian aboard his ship The Dawn Treader. This was not my favorite of the series, but it certainly held my attention well enough this time as it did when I was a boy.

In this, the fifth book of The Chronicles Of Narnia, Lucy and Edmund have returned to Narnia without Susan and Peter, who are now too old. Their cousin, Eustace, considered obnoxious by everyone except his parents, is brought along with them, although he is fond of telling them that Narnia and Asland do not exist and are just a figment of their imaginations. They arrive to find that King Caspian has decided to take a voyage on his royal ship, the Dawn Treader. He plans to sail to the end of the world and find out what lies there and along the way. He has pledged to determine the fate of the seven lords, friends of his father, who went on expedition when Caspian was a child and then never returned. Lucy, Edmund and Eustace accompany Caspian, along with other characters the reader has met in previous books of the Chronicles. The company encounters many strange lands and people. There is the Land Where Dreams Come True, the Land of Deathwater, the Land of the Dufflepods, and the land where three of the lords are found to have been asleep for years. The reader is drawn along on the adventure, interested to hear what will befall the company next. At the end of the book, Caspian returns to Narnia, while the children return to their world. This book is recommended for readers of all ages, and is especially recommended for families to read together.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis is a great book to read if you like letting your imagination soar. It is the third book in the Chronicles of Narnia. In the book, three children are sent into a different world where they encounter many adventures as they sail the seas in an awesome ship called the Dawn Treader. I like many things about this book. First, the book is full of a diverse group of characters. These characters make the book interesting. Also, there is never a boring part in the book. The story keeps moving in a constant flow of events. I like that the setting of the book is in a strange world because it is different than what I am used to. The only negative thing I can say about this book is that it could be a little longer. Overall, I loved The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

This one was amazing! It went everywhere in the ocean. To islands that turn anything to gold, to islands with retired stars, to islands with dragons, to the sea that had seawater that tasted sweet. You have got to read this book.

A wonderful book in the Narnia series! The 'Dawn Treader' is King Caspian's own ship, and he's going on a thrilling adventure through the Great Eastern Ocean. Edmund, Lucy, and their cousin Eustace "join the picture" in Narnia aboard the ship. Although the charm of having all 4 siblings together is missing from this particular story, Reepicheep made up for it... what a gallant mouse! He always knows just what to say. King Caspian is on a quest to locate the whereabouts of 7 missing Narnian lords. The 'Dawn Treader' will go through many enchanted trials across the ocean, as the travel continues past the Silver Sea, to the End of the World, Aslan's country. Are you coming aboard ship?

Voyage of the Dawn Treader is one of the best books in Lewis's series. It's full of adventure, mystery, and fantastic places. This book is outstanding- it all takes place on a boat and nothing is what it seems! Definately a MUST READ!
