A sequel to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952) takes Eustace Scrubb who went with the Pevensia?? children on their last voyage to the make believe land of Narnia, on a return trip- this time with a school friend Jill. In Narnia, Aslan the friendly lion, commission them to hunt for lost prince Rilian. After adventures with enchantresses and monzters, they find the prince, return to their hated school (which by way of sounding off against "progressive education" Mr. Lewis has described as a place full of trumped-up psychological problems) and as if by magic change it for the better. English fantasy we hope some young Americans may fancy. (Kirkus Reviews)

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 English 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 Mere Christianity, 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 been transformed into three major motion pictures.
