Synopsis

Join Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy in their first adventure back in Narnia since The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Nothing exciting has happened in the year since they've returned to England. But while the four children are waiting for a train to take them to boarding school, they feel tugged . . . and pulled . . . and suddenly they are yanked back to Narnia! The Great Lion, Aslan, has a new adventure in store for them—they must help Prince Caspian fight for his throne and make Narnia safe and free.

In this adaptation of Prince Caspian, perfect for Narnia's youngest fans, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy meet new friends as they struggle to save Narnia once again.

  • Armstrong puts Lewis to life.
    From Amazon

    The art work in this book is incredible. Armstrong took the images from my childhood dreams and put them on paper. The colors are rhythmic and images are fierce. I recommend this book, for the story everyone grew up with, and no one should grow up without. The art work brings the story to life. I love this book.

  • Lovely artwork, but extremely abridged!
    From Amazon

    I bought this book for my 5 year old son, who loves all things Narnia. It was an impulse buy, and I wish that I had examined it more closely.

    Matthew Armstrong is a lovely illustrator. I particularly like his depiction of Edmund- hair slightly messy, head held at a rakish angle. It gives Edmund an impish look. The lively battle scenes also stand out, full of movement and gleaming swords. But the drawing of Aslan is a little disappointing. I can't quite put my finger on it...he's just a little stiff or flat.

    While the illustrations are charming, the writing is not. Too many of the sentences start with a "th" word: then, they, there, that, the... As I read it aloud, the wording felt awkward. Perhaps this book is overly simplified for very young audiences? (Although I would argue that even small children can appreciate good writing along with good illustrations)

    I won't voluntarily pull this book off the shelf often, as it is not a pleasure to read. But my son will probably enjoy looking at the pictures as he listens to the books on tape.

    For illustrations- 4 stars
    For writing- 2 stars

  • Matthew Armstrong - Illustrator Extraordinaire!
    From Amazon

    Of course this book is great because of C.S. Lewis. But Matthew Armstrong's illustrations make this book shine. Matthew worked in Utah for Sony video games, but we met and he illustrated "The Blacksmith's Gift" for me - and made that book shine as well. After "The Blacksmith's Gift" won a Benjamin Franklin Award, he had the opportunity to move up to Narnia! I'd recommend getting any book that Matthew does - he brings his unique abilities to each and every work!
