The Narnia Chronicles, first published in 1950, have been and remain some of the most enduringly popular ever published.

"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!
About The Author
Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast 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 16. However, it was not until many years later as a professor at Cambridge University that the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificent lion. Their story became The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed and the final title, The Last Battle, published in 1956, was awarded the highest mark of excellence in...
More English make-believe and symbol-ridden adventure in a sequal to The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian; The Return to Narnia in which Lucy and Edmond Pevensie, this time with their spoiled cousin Eustace, journey again to fantastic Narnia for rousing and wonderful times. They journey with young King Caspian, Captain Drinian of the D?? Treader the talking mouse Reepicheep and others to aid the six lords who had been betrayed with the death of the former king, Caspian's father. Their way takes them to much lands as the Lone Islands where they restore the lost Lord Bern's lands, usurped by the evil slaver Governor Gumpas; they fight such perils as a horrible sea monster. In the end it is Reepicheep who gets his wish- of sailing to the eastern end of the world to find happiness in the country of Narnia's former here, the wise Lion Asian. And in a moment filled with the sadness of departure tempered by the wisdom of growing up, Lucy, Edmond and Eustace return to their own- Eustace, as it was later implied by his elders, much improved by the influence of those Pevensies. Fine fantasy. (Kirkus Reviews)
