A classic well-done.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader picks up presumably not long after thhe four Pevensies returned from Narnia at the end of Prince Caspian. While Peter goes to study with the famous Professor Kirk and Susan visits America with their parents, Edmund and Lucy are enduring an unpleasant stay with their disagreeable cousin Eustace Scrubb. Things get complicated whent he three children are suddenly sucked into a painting of a ship sailing one of the seven seas. They find themselves aboard the Dawn Treader, King Caspian's personal ship. Caspian reveals that he is on a quest to find sevenn Narnian lords banished during the reign of his tyranical uncle Miraz and return them to Narnia. While Edmund and Lucy are overjoyed to be back in Narnia, the pampered Eustace wants nothing more than to go back home. Will the crew of the Dawn Treader be able to complete their quest? And will Eustace drive them all crazy?
This was an excellent production. Derek Jacobi does a good job of bringing the various characters to life. About my only complaint? is his portrayal of Reepicheep, but since he's a talking mouse... Needless to say I couldn't put this one down.

Favorite Narnia book

This was my favorite book out of all 7. I liked the shorter stories that went along with each adventure. I also liked how Eustace changes as the book goes on. The imagery Lewis creates is amazing, espcially toward the end.
