The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Read-Aloud Edition (Narnia)by C S Lewis
Synopses & Reviews
Enlarged for easy reading to children as well as reading to yourself or an audience, this hardcover edition of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, book five in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia, features black-and-white interior artwork by the series' original illustrator, Pauline Baynes.
A king and some unexpected companions embark on a voyage that will take them beyond all known lands. As they sail farther and farther from charted waters, they discover that their quest is more than they imagined and that the world's end is only the beginning.
Anything can happen in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the fifth book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been enchanting readers of all ages for over sixty years. This is a novel that stands on its own, but if you would like return to worlds beyond your wildest imagination, read The Silver Chair, the sixth book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
This special read-aloud edition is large-sized, paper-over-board, illustrated with classic black-and-white Pauline Baynes art.
Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, accompanied by their unpleasant cousin, Eustace, are pulled into Narnia once again, this time through an enchanted picture that brings them aboard the magnificent ship the Dawn Treader. There, they join King Caspian and Reepicheep, the valiant Mouse, on a daring quest to find seven lords who have been banished from Narnia by evil Miraz. As they sail farther and farther from charted waters toward Aslans country at the End of the World, they find wonders and danger far beyond their wildest imagination—and see Reepicheep set off for the greatest adventure of all.
Book five of The Chronicles of Narnia continues the saga of C.S. Lewis's beloved land of fantastic creatures and unlikely heroes. Readers of any age will be entranced as the crew of the Dawn Treader approaches the "Worlds End."
