“Prince Caspian” by C. S. Lewis

Back of the Book:

The four Pevensies help Caspian battle Miraz and ascend his rightful throne.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensey, the heroes and heroines from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, return in this fourth installment of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series. The four children are transported from an English train station to an island in the world of Narnia. Though Narnia has been at peace since the children left, it is now under the control of Wicked King Mirax. The youngsters, along with Aslan the great lion, must help young Prince Caspian restore Narnia’s glorious past. This full-cast dramatization adheres closely to the book’s text. Actor Paul Scofield is the “storyteller,” and other British actors read the character parts. The production features sound effects and background music, and is a more complete version of the story than the BBC audio production (Bantam Doubleday, 1998). Children familiar with the series will enjoy this impressive production.

The very worst thing about this book is that Aslan is the one to save the day. Eh, feels like cheating to me, but it doesn’t make the story any less awesome. :-D

The very best thing about this book is when they realize for certain that they are again in Narnia and several centuries into their Narnian future.
