Author Info
C. S. Lewis
Clive Staples Lewis was educated in England, attending Oxford in 1917. World War I interrupted his studies and Lewis served in the trenches for two years. In 1919 he returned to Oxford, where he remained until 1954. An atheist, Lewis converted to Christianity in 1929, and spent his life pursuing many interests: his acclaimed Narnia books and a trilogy of space travel novels; books concerning religion; and an academic career in medieval and renaissance literature. In 1955, Lewis moved on to Magdalen College, Cambridge University; in 1956 he married Joy Davidman Gresham, who died in 1960. Lewis survived her by three years.
From the Publisher
Annotation A few English months and many Narnian years separate this follow-up to THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER, the previous installment in the classic children's fantasy series the Chronicles of Narnia. The much-reformed Eustace Scrubb and a schoolmate, Jill Pole, escape from bullies at their entirely horrible boarding school through a door in the wall. Stepping through the door magically transports the children to Narnia's guardian, the talking lion Aslan, who assigns them the task of finding Prince Rilian, the long-lost son and heir to the aged King Caspian. Aided by Puddleglum (the lugubrious marsh-wiggle) and the Signs, four pieces of vital information given to them by Aslan which the children persist in misinterpreting, Eustace and Jill embark upon their quest, which takes them to many strange and dangerous places.
First Line It was a dull autumn day and Jill Pole was crying behind the gym.
Editors Note 'Supposing I told you I'd been in a place where animals can talk and where there are -- er -- enchantments and dragons -- and -- well, all the sorts of things you have in fairy-tales.' Scrubb felt terribly awkward as he said this and got red in the face. 'How did you get there?' said Jill. She also felt curiously shy. 'The only way you can -- by Magic.' Through an ordinary doorway Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole, stumble upon Narnia. But it is not their own wishes that bring them to the enchanted land; it is the will of the mighty Aslan. The noble Lion sends the children on a mission to find the lost Prince Rilian, beloved son of Caspian, who was lured away by a mysterious woman ten years ago and has been missing ever since. Together with Puddleglum, the gloomy but valiant Marsh-wiggle, Eustace and Jill must brave menacing giants, and other grave dangers before delving into Underland to save the Prince. And although they have reached the end of their quest, their troubles have only
