Publisher Comments:

A mass-market paperback edition of Prince Caspian, book four in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia, featuring cover art by Cliff Nielsen and black-and-white interior illustrations by the original illustrator of Narnia, Pauline Baynes.

The Pevensie siblings travel back to Narnia to help a prince denied his rightful throne as he gathers an army in a desperate attempt to rid his land of a false king. But in the end, it is a battle of honor between two men alone that will decide the fate of an entire world.

Prince Caspian is the fourth book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land where animals talk and trees walk for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you would like to read more of Lucy and Edmund's adventures, pick up The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the fifth book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Synopsis:

Narnia . . . the land between the lamp-post and the castle of Cair Paravel, where animals talk, where magical things happen . . . and where the adventure begins. Peter, Susan Edmund and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan's own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia — the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.

Synopsis:

A prince fights for his crown

Narnia ... where animals talk ... where trees walk ... where a battle is about to begin.

A prince denied his rightful throne gathers an army in a desperate attempt to rid his land of a false king. But in the end, it is a battle of honor between two men alone that will decide the fate of an entire world.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis, was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends recounted to him by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was sixteen. Many years later, the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificient lion. Their story became The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, was awarded the United Kingdom's prestigious Carnegie Award.

This book is a fantastic way of re-entering Narnia after "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." The dramatic capture of Narnia by the wicked Telmarines sets the stage for this inspiring adventure. Caspian is young, and therefore most children relate to him. Those most likely to relate are homeless children, children from abusive homes, and children of divorced/deceased parents, because Caspian's father is deceased and his Aunt and Uncle are raising him, and soon after the beginning he must live life on his own. The book also gives a strong sense of the difference between right and wrong. You feel this from the great reverence given to Aslan, who represents the way of truth, and the deep evil and hatred given to King Miraz, who portrays exactly that.

The book does well in the fact that it reintroduces the four Pevensie children as children again, and as them being the long sought after aid. This helps children relate even more because it tells them that kids their age can change not only our world, but a world totally different from ours. Of course, in "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," Aslan declared them as Kings and Queens in Narnia forever, saying, "Once a king or queen in Narnia, always a king or queen in Narnia." So they are returning as royalty; but nothing is the same. This time difference sparks the interest immediately, making a person wonder if there really could be other worlds if time travelled differently.

The battles are epic, and the ending is dramatic and glorious, as well as happy (and slightly sad). I would say that this book is a first-class book and should be read by anyone who loves fiction.
