Our favorite English heroes return in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: The Chronicles of Narnia.

Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are not the happiest children in the world. The two younger of the Pevensie children were once king and queen over an entire realm, before falling out of a wardrobe and finding themselves to be children once more. Then they had journeyed back to that world and saved it from a tyrant (for the second time!) before returning once more to England. But now they are stuck in the home of their cousin, an entirely unpleasant boy named Eustace, and they are frustrated and bored with their life.

The two try to pass the time by reminiscing about the good old days in Narnia. They recall fondly their times hunting, fishing, and swimming in that magical land, and all of the friends they had there. Eustace, to the contrary, passes the time by making fun of his cousins, who he is certain are making these stories up- an activity which he finds to be childish and uninteresting. But then the painting on the bedroom wall comes to life, and Eustace finds himself, along with Edmund and Lucy, sucked into the very world about which they had been daydreaming.

When the trio passes through the frame of the painting, they discover that they are located on the deck of the Dawn Treader, a Narnian ship which is on a voyage headed by none other than Lucy and Edmund's old friend, Prince Caspian. Caspian is on a mission which is part diplomatic, part quest, and all adventure in nature, and the Pevensie children are more than happy to tag along.

Join the Pevensies, Eustace, Caspian, and a host of other intriguing characters as they sail the treacherous seas in search of the seven lost lords of Narnia. You'll be happy you did.

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.

A 5-CD unabridged audiobook of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, book five in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Narrated by noted actor Derek Jacobi, you can also put the CDs into your computer to see a gallery of full-color illustrations of Narnia by the 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 to explore more of Narnia, read The Silver Chair, the sixth book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The incomparable Derek Jacobi gives delightful voice to Lewis’ well-loved story. His steady pace keeps the Dawn Treader’s sails filled with wind and guides the ship and its crew. Jacobi delivers unique portraits of Lewis’ classic characters, as well as strong renderings of the myriad supporting characters as the quest passes from the Lone Islands to the Last Sea and home again.”


  • “Rousing and wonderful.”

    " The only word to describe this book is BORING. "

    " This was my favorite of the Narnia books growing up, although it's since then been displaced by others. However, upon reading it with my own children, I can now see its appeal to the younger set: it's very episodic, the island-hopping quest lending itself well to that set-up. My husband and I read it to the kids tag-team, so I didn't hear the ending this time around, but my husband claimed that it seemed abrupt. "

    " Lewis' version of The Odyssey. So good. So funny. This one has all of my favorite characters in it. Reepicheep- respect! Eustace is the great liberal turned human. And the Dufflepods are hilarious. "

    " "but what manner of use would it be ploughing through that darkness?" asked drinian. "use?" replied reepicheep. "use, captain?" if you mean by filling our bellies or our purses, i confess it will be no use at all. so far as i know we did not set sail to look for things useful but to seek honour and adventures. and here is as great an adventure as i have ever heard of, and here, if we turn back, no little impeachment of all our honours." - c. s. lewis, the voyage of the dawn treader "
