Product Description

From Amazon

The BBC Radio production of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a delightful two-hour sail on the most fabulous ship in Narnia. Lucy and Edmund, with their dreadful cousin Eustace, get magically pulled into a painting of a ship at sea. That ship is the Dawn Treader, and on board is Caspian, King of Narnia. He and his companions, including Reepicheep, the valiant warrior mouse, are searching for seven lost lords of Narnia, and their voyage will take them to the edge of the world. Their adventures include being captured by slave traders, a much-too-close encounter with a dragon, and visits to many enchanted islands, including the place where dreams come true. The adaptation is faithful to its source, C.S. Lewis's series of Narnia books, which have provided exciting and uplifting tales for generations of children. BBC Radio does wonders with sound effects--the ship creaks in the wind, the sorrowful dragon roars lugubriously--and musical cues and interludes that keep the pacing dynamic. There's also a splendid cast of plummy British voices, making this far more than a book read onto cassette--it's an audio drama, as enjoyable as a trip to the theater. Grownups who buy this tape for their children will want to borrow it for themselves. (Running time: two hours, two cassettes) --Blaise Selby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-In the third book in C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia (but the fifth installment in Focus on the Family's Radio Theatre production), Edmund and Lucy Pevensy along with their bratty cousin, Eustace, are transported through a painting into Narnia where they join Prince Caspian on a voyage to the west. The children are tested on this voyage, and visit strange lands and encounter unusual creatures. Eustace is turned into a dragon, and then helped to return to human form by Aslan, the lion god. This outstanding full-cast dramatization adheres closely to the book's text. Recorded in London, actor Paul Scofield is the storyteller, and other parts are dramatically read by other British actors. The production features sound effects and background music, which sometimes becomes obtrusive. While adults might find the story a little dated at times and the religious elements somewhat heavy handed, children will not notice and will enjoy the story. This is a more complete version of the story than the excellent BBC production available from Bantam Audiobooks (1998).

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: Paperback
The second volume of the Narnia Chronicles closed with the possibility of Lucy and Edmund -- though not their older siblings -- returning to Narnia. "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" makes good on that story, with the intrepid pair (plus a whiny cousin) returning on a strange sea voyage.

After the events of "Prince Caspian," Lucy and Edmund are sent off to stay with their obnoxious cousin Eustace. But when they admire a picture of a strange ship, suddenly all three kids are sucked in -- and land in a Narnian sea. On board the ship is King Caspian, now fully grown, who is determined to find a bunch of knights exiled by his murderous uncle, even if he has to go to the edge of the world (literally).

Lucy and Edmund are thrilled to be back in Narnia again, but Eustance proceeds to make trouble any way he can, complaining and causing trouble among the crew. But there are problems more horrifying than any of them can guess, from dragons to sinister "gold water" to a region filled with their worst nightmares.

"The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is one of Lewis's most original and tightly-written Narnian adventures. It's also a bit of a break from form. After two books of battles against evil tyrants, "Voyage" simply goes where no man/woman/mouse has gone before, and gives us a view of the Narnian world as more than one isolated little region.

And in some ways, it's also the darkest Chronicle. Lewis explores the theme of greed here -- greed for power, beauty, money and magic -- and has some scenes both chilling and majestic. But his archly humorous style peeks through in several places, whether it's pompous mouse Reepicheep or tea with a reclusive old wizard.

Edmund and Lucy are their usual plucky selves, albeit a bit more mature than before.

The immediate follow-up to "Prince Caspian," "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is one of C.S. Lewis' classic Narnia series, and contains all the magic, wonder and adventure of the others in the series. Maybe more.
Like most of the Narnia books, "Voyage" takes little time to get moving. Edmund and Lucy are staying with their mean and arrogant little cousin Eustace (Peter and Susan are excised from the story for being too old), when the three children are pulled into the world of Narnia. Edmund and Lucy are delighted to have arrived, but Eustace is bitter at the situation. He is made even more bitter because of where they appear: In the middle of the ocean, where they are picked up by King Caspian on his ship, the Dawn Treader.
Caspian is in the midst of a grand journey in which he is trying to sail to the end of the world. Tossed into the mix is his quest to find seven companions of his father, who fled Narnia when the bad folks from "Prince Caspian" took over. The entire plot is little more than an excuse to sail to lands unknown and explore the most fantastic sights Narnia has to offer. The story does not fail in that endeavor.
While it begins as Another Narnia Adventure, "Voyage" quickly becomes an exploration adventure of the most classic kind, an archetype of a tale in which every action drives the characters towards the next episode and the next land of wonder. Like other timeless tales of this type, the device is remarkably effective in keeping the reader's interest and repeatedly engage one's sense of awe.
Naturally, there are Lessons thrown in for good measure. Lewis can occasionally grate with moralizing, but "Voyage's" moral tales are not grating in the least. Most are tales that have been told time and again throughout mankind's history.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although the third volume written by Lewis, "Dawn Treader" falls fifth in the Narnian chronology. It can be thought of as a melding of the Quest/Cruscade theme (from the Horse and His Boy) with many of the characters from Prince Caspian.
Like in the Horse and His Boy, we have here an adventure that takes place amongst non-believers outside the Kingdom of God (Narnia). Here however the protagonists are actively seeking adventure while cruscading outside the realm. Their many adventures include abolishing slavery, freeing the invisible Dufflepuds from their 'medieval' enchantment, as well as more metaphorical visits to golden ponds, the isle of dreams, and dragon-infested lands. By the end of the book, the travellers have finally reached the boundary between heaven and earth; who will turn back and who will go on?
Despite the fact that this book included several adventures and was written for somewhat older children than some of the earlier offerings, I found this book to be somewhat slow going. Perhaps the already-noted episodic nature of the tales is to blame; somehow the religious and moral messages were not as compelling here, and Reepicheep was the only really fresh character in the bunch.
Nevertheless, this will be a good read for young and old alike who are looking to continue their Narnian adventure. (3.5 stars)

Format: Paperback
Three years after Prince Caspian (of the 4th Narnian Chronicle 'Prince Caspian') was crowned King of Narnia he set out on a voyage to discover and if possible, recover, the seven missing Lords who left Narnia years earlier by order of his wicked Uncle Miraz. The only thing that is lacking though, it the presences of their royal majesties, Queen Lucy and King Edmund. However, that will soon change.
In England, Edmund and Lucy are unavoidably required to visit their Aunt, Uncle and cousin Eustace Clarence Scrubb for the duration of 16 weeks while Peter visits the Professor, and Susan tours the US with her parents. In a reverie of Narnia they happen to enter into the magical world as they had previously done several times before, and Edmund, Lucy, and Eustace are thrust into one of the most amazing adventures ever. The journey on board the majestic Dawn Treader takes them to the Eastern Islands, to the Silver Sea, and then further than any Narnian (or human) had ever been, toward the End of the World where Aslan's country lies.
There are so many more wonderful experiences and descriptions in this book that are possible to name. Yet, for example there are the hilarious Dufflepuds and their absurd antics, the valiant Reepicheep, the mysterious Ramandu and his daughter, and of course, the beautiful green and gold Dawn Treader. :)
The Dawn Treader is so full of adventure that you will long to read it again and again.
