Description - The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian by C. S. Lewis

Narnia has been at peace since Peter, Susan, Lucy and Edmund helped rid the kingdom of the evil White Witch. But now the children have returned to their own world, and in their absence a dark presence rules the once harmonious land. Wicked King Miraz has imposed a destructive new order of persecution and imprisonment, but the King's nephew and rightful heir Prince Caspian, realising the evil of his uncle's regime, vows to revive Narnia's glorious past. Fearing for his life, he is forced to flee and calls on the four children, the magic of the mighty lion Aslan and an army of fauns, dwarfs and woodland spirits to help him in his seemingly impossible task. Follow Aslan and his human friends on yet another escapade, as they take up the challenge to win back freedom and happiness for the fabulous land of Narnia. 2 CDs. 2 hrs 5 mins.

Book Reviews - The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian by C. S. Lewis

US Kirkus Review » Very special, somewhat mystic fantasy, this is a sequel to last year's The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by the English author of the ?? Letters Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are unexpectedly pulled back from an English railroad station to Narnia, the wonderful land out of our own time where animals and trees talk, and where the children had last reigned as kings and queens. However, many Narnian years have past, and Kings Peter and Edmund, Queens Susan and Lucy find themselves with the great lion, Aslan, part of legend in a land where a cruel set of humans have taken over, where the talking animals, dwarfs, nymphs, satyrs and other Old Narnians are in hiding. It becomes the children's duty, following Aslan, to bring back the long-ago glory by aiding young Prince Caspian to gain the throne. Like many of Thurber's fables, this tempts adults to read on two levels, but for imaginative children, this is rich fairy-tale fare. More coordinated in construction, we think, than the preceding book. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - C. S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898. In 1917 he went to Oxford University, but his studies were interrupted by the First World War, from which he was sent home wounded. One of his friends at Oxford was J.R.R. Tolkien. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was published in 1950. Fascinated by the difference in time between our own world and Narnia, Lewis wrote some of the books in a different order to the events which they portrayed. An example of this is The Magician's Nephew, which details the early history of Narnia and is intended to be read before the others. C.S. Lewis died in 1963.
