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 take a voyage into the unknown. The fifth volume in The Chronicles of Narnia The Voyage of the Dawn Treader -- Narnia...where a dragon awakens...where stars walk the earth...where anything can happen. 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. Derek Jacobi is a celebrated actor, having won a Tony Award for Much Ado About Nothing, and an Emmy award for Graham Greene's The Tenth Man. Jacobi is perhaps best known for his brilliant portrayal of the Emperor in the mini-series, /Claudius.
This children's fantasy, part of the classic Chronicles of Narnia, takes place not long after the previous installment in the series, PRINCE CASPIAN. The two younger Pevensie siblings, Edmund and Lucy, return to Narnia (or rather, to a ship a few days' journey from Narnia), accompanied this time by their extremely unpleasant cousin, Eustace Scrubb. There, they join their friend, King Caspian, on a sea-voyaging quest to discover the whereabouts of seven lords loyal to Caspian's late father, all of whom disappeared on an expedition many years ago. En route, they have several adventures with slave traders, greedy dragons, magical springs, and mysterious sorcerers. The BBC adapted this book for television in 1989.
