HarperCollins is proud to present a celebration of C.S. Lewis' timeless classic, Prince Caspian, lovingly brought to life in the original design and with the original illustrations. "Look sharp!" shouted Edmund. "All catch hands and keep together. This is magic - I can tell by the feeling!" Prince Caspian is in terrible danger when his wicked uncle, King Miraz, decides to get rid of the young heir to the throne. In desperation, Caspian blows the magic horn, calling on Peter, Susan, Lucy and Edmund in Narnia's hour of need. This is the fourth adventure in the exciting Chronicles of Narnia.
A very good follow-up to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Though perhaps without the same sense of wonder, yet populated with remarkable characters. Very enjoyable.

Charming and Delightful
I read C.S. Lewis' Prince Caspian (Narnia) for my online book club this month. Although I?ve read other C.S. Lewis books, nonfiction and Till We Have Faces, I?d only read The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe of the Chronicles.
I love how much charm and humor the narrator has from page one to the end. The story is allegorical, but the symbolism is well weighted in the story. It is there and available for the average reader to pick up, but it doesn?t overwhelm the story.
I liked the characters and how they relate to each other. I like how the narrator explains them, for example relating them to how we might feel or how we might get when we?re tired or hungry. It?s humble and respectful of us and the characters.
I took a film class Roger Ebert taught years ago and he always said the best genre films (but I think the same can be said of books) interests the person who?s not ?into? that genre. I don?t read fantasy books, but I did like this. Very much.
