The Pevensie children return in Prince Caspian: The Chronicles of Narnia.

The evil King Miraz has just received news. News which seems wonderful to him, and at the same time horrifying to everyone else in Narnia. After much time waiting and hoping, King Miraz's wife has finally borne him a son. This is particularly bad news for his nephew, Prince Caspian, who is the rightful heir to the throne of Narnia. With a son to carry on his own line, Miraz now wishes to do away with Caspian, and establish his ancestral reign over the kingdom. Warned in advance of his impending doom, Prince Caspian makes a daring escape, and when all seems lost, he sounds a magic trumpet which is said to summon help in times of great need.

Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy spent what seemed like a lifetime in Narnia, only to be returned to England mere minutes after they had first entered the wardrobe that fateful rainy day. But while they haven't been the kings and queens of Narnia in a long while, they still have an intimate connection to it. One day, as they are waiting on a train platform, the Pevensie children hear what seems to be the sound of a trumpet in the distance, and the next thing they know, the platform is disappearing from view.

The Pevensies find themselves in another place, and know instantly that they are in Narnia. But where in Narnia, they are not sure at first. It is not until they figure out what the old ruined building in which they are standing actually is that they realize just how much trouble Narnia is in.

Can these children, summoned from a far off world, help Prince Caspian in his plight? Will Narnia once again welcome the high kings and queens of old, even though they are but children? Will good once again triumph over evil? The answers may surprise you.

Clive Staples Lewis, Born in England, was an author, professor, theologian, and Christian apologist. As a professor, Lewis regularly interacted with fellow authors J.R.R. Tolkien and Louis Carroll. Along with his many theological works, Lewis wrote ten children's books - the seven novels which comprise the Chronicles of Narnia, and his Space trilogy.

In the never-ending war between good and evil, The Chronicles of Narnia set the stage for battles of epic proportions. Some take place in vast fields, where the forces of light and darkness clash. But other battles occur within the small chambers of the heart and are equally decisive.

Journeys to the ends of the world, fantastic creatures, betrayals, heroic deeds, and friendships won and lost -- all come together in an unforgettable world of magic. So join a prince as he fights for his crown.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karin | 2/7/2014

    " I did not enjoy this Narnia tale nearly as much as the rest so far. I am rereading them after MANY years. Prince Caspian seems too pieced together or rather not very well connected. Too much background and not enough story? At any rate, not as engaging for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ria | 2/1/2014

    " still...amazed... "

    " Well I don't have much to say for that book, but It really ended suddenly. Many small good lessons inside. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AnaIsabel | 1/13/2014

    " It is a good movie but the book is very slow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexandra Sundarsingh | 1/3/2014

    " A decent book, but the departure from light hearted and happy endings into complex emotional endings is a little odd considering it's a children's series. Though maybe kids were more serious back then. Good read overall, but not astounding. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob | 11/24/2013

    " I liked the part where they are in the train station and then they go into Narnia somehow, and they don't know where they are until they see Cair Paravel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 10/24/2013

    " Good book. The plot of the book deviates from the original novel but I enjoyed both. I read this book also to my two oldest boys (5 & now 7). As with the other Narnia books this created wonderful discussions about following God and doing what is right. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauri | 6/17/2013

    " I have such a terrible memory. I've seen the movie, but nothing in the book seemed familiar. I guess I get to watch the movie again now. We listened to this on our trip to Boise. "

    " It was only ok if you ask me. The only reason I read it was to get to the last book (The Last Battle). Feel free to skip it if you know enough areadly about what happens. "

    " Something to read for 2 year olds. U can try to read into it- but really, u cant go deeper than a kids swimming pool with it and it gets EXTREMELY tedious by the 2nd book! But dont get me wrong - i am a 1# fan of NANIA MOVIES. Emphasis on MOVIES "
