The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Title: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Author: C.S. Lewis

What it's about: After the events of Prince Caspian, Caspian sets out to sail east and find seven lords banished from Narnia by his uncle. Lucy, Edmund, and their cousin Eustace fall into Narnia through a picture. They join Caspian on his journey, and Eustace gets some character development. They visit many interesting islands and sail to the eastern end of the world.

What I thought: My favorite part about this book is the wonderful description of strange new places. The island where dreams come true always intrigued me, and the part from Ramandu's island onwards is just awesome in what it depicts. And, of course, Eustace's adventure as a dragon is quite interesting, too.

Overall: This book deserves props just for the wonders it dreams up.
