9780007253005: Voyage of the Dawn Treader (The Chronicles of Narnia)

Beautiful hardback editions of the classic series with covers designed by award winning illustrator David Wiesner. "Stop it!" cried Eustace. "It's some silly trick you are playing! Ow!" A great cold salt splash had broken right out of the frame and they were breathless from the smack of it, as well as being wet through. Lucy and Edmund, stuck with their awful cousin Eustace, suddenly find themselves on board the Dawn Treader -- and realise they have fallen into the magical land of Narnia. Reunited with old friends, the young King Caspian and Reepicheep the mouse, they gladly join the voyage to the World's End. Eustace, however, is not so happy.

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

From the Inside Flap:

In the enchanted land of Narnia, Edmund and Lucy join King Caspian on a sworn mission to find the seven lost Lords of Narnia.  So begins a perilous new quest that takes them to the farthest edge of the Eastern world on board the mighty Dawn Treader.

Sailing uncharted seas, the old friends must survive a terrible storm, encounters with sea serpents, dragons, and invisible enemies to reach lands where magicians weave mysterious spells and nightmares come true.  They need every ounce of courage and the help of the great lion Aslan to triumph in their most hazardous adventure of all.

This acclaimed BBC Radio dramatization perfectly captures C.S. Lewis' magical world where once again the inhabitants of Narnia join with their human companions in the never ending battle between good and evil.  With a stellar cast, authentic sound effects and wonderfully stirring music,
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will warm and engage the hearts of children and adults alike.
