The Voyage of the Dawntreader

I am going to continue for a few more weeks to see if this blogging stuff is right for me. The other monsters seem to fight and bicker a lot and that scares me slightly. Still, this week, I am reviewing a follow on to last week and the week before allowing us once again to sink into the works of classical children’s fantasy.

The Voyage of the Dawntreader – A TV series review

This Narnian chronicle follows close on the heels of Prince Caspian and sees the two younger children and their annoying cousin entire the magical world though a picture on the wall – straight into the sea!

A slightly older Prince Caspian, upon the vessel Dawntreader, rescues them and they set out on an epic adventure complete with quest.

This leads them though pirates, dark clouds of nightmares and to meet fallen stars. They eventually reach the world’s end by which point the annoying cousin himself, through trial and tribulation, has gone on a personal journey similar to that of Edmund’s in the first chronicle, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe.

This is probably my favourite Narnian chronicle as it takes you through a spectrum of emotions and the change of scenery in each episode lends a freshness to it.

The Brave mouse Reepicheep is a fantastic character and I wish I had one living in my house though my cats might have something to say about that – like LUNCH!

Brave, kind, courteous to the point of amusement but courageous to put the larger inhabitants of the boat to shame.
