In the fifth book in the Chronicles of Narnia series, Lucy, Edmund, and Cousin Eustace enter a ship painting and embark on a voyage with Caspian to the end of the world. While the story features a quest of high adventure and intrigue on islands of dragons, magicians, and "Dufflepuds," it also showcases the character of Lucy and the detestable, but perhaps redeemed, Eustace. The incomparable Derek Jacobi gives delightful voice to Lewis's well-loved story. His steady pace keeps the Dawn Treader's sails filled with wind and guides the ship and its crew. Jacobi delivers unique portraits of Lewis's classic characters, as well as strong renderings of the myriad supporting characters as the quest passes from the Lone Islands to the Last Sea and home again.
