More English make-believe and symbol-ridden adventure in a sequal to The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian; The Return to Narnia in which Lucy and Edmond Pevensie, this time with their spoiled cousin Eustace, journey again to fantastic Narnia for rousing and wonderful times. They journey with young King Caspian, Captain Drinian of the D?? Treader the talking mouse Reepicheep and others to aid the six lords who had been betrayed with the death of the former king, Caspian's father. Their way takes them to much lands as the Lone Islands where they restore the lost Lord Bern's lands, usurped by the evil slaver Governor Gumpas; they fight such perils as a horrible sea monster. In the end it is Reepicheep who gets his wish- of sailing to the eastern end of the world to find happiness in the country of Narnia's former here, the wise Lion Asian. And in a moment filled with the sadness of departure tempered by the wisdom of growing up, Lucy, Edmond and Eustace return to their own- Eustace, as it was later implied by his elders, much improved by the influence of those Pevensies. Fine fantasy. (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.
