A mass-market paperback edition of Prince Caspian, book four in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia, featuring cover art by Cliff Nielsen and black-and-white interior illustrations by the original illustrator of Narnia, Pauline Baynes.

Prince Caspian is the fourth book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land where animals talk and trees walk for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you would like to read more of Lucy and Edmund's adventures, pick up The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the fifth book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Story It's so fun to visit Narnia again and even though the plot mirrors that of the first, the story still retains all of its charm and wonder that made me fall in love with the first book. It's a bit sad how Susan and Peter won't be returning, the apparent finality of that is a bit depressing to think of as you grow older, but this is still a great book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Story, if not a Little Violent Another great entry in the Narnia series. The story revisits some of the greatest characters from the series and introduces some interesting new ones. The story is great, but treats war as the only solution, which cumulates in a rather violent ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prince Caspian I love this story! It's one of my favourite Narnia books. The action starts immediately, the story is compelling (I completely forgot that Trumpkin was telling a story when he was talking) and the vision we see of the legacy of the Pevensie kids as rulers of Narnia is incredible, since we cheered them on their way in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Remarkable A divine read filled with a twisted plot. Witnessing the obstacles that the young children had to face, after reading page after page, brought great amount of anticipation throughout the book. A great book for young children to help craft their own personalities. Job well done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A timeless classic! Everyone knows the Narnia series by now, especially with the books being adapted into movies. This second volume takes place hundreds of years after the first book but still features Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy as the main characters. A very charming tale for all ages but aimed at the tween reader. If you saw the movie, you already know what happens but, be warned, there are no battle scenes here. Lewis kept his books very quiet concerning violence, probably due to his strong religious convictions. The book does not suffer because of this but a modern reader might find the series a little tame nonetheless.

Caspian must gather all the talking animals and dwarfs to overcome Miraz. I recomend it. Also in this series: The Magicians Nephew, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Horse and His Boy.

How good Caspian and his army of Talking Beasts conquered the Telemarines.

Employee Review

The fourth volume of The Chronicles of Narnia adds a Shakespearean twist to the series's usual biblical influence. Caspian, the true king of Narnia, with the help of Aslan and the High Kings and High Queens of Narnia, must raise an army of fairies, talking animals and giants to overcome his uncle's plot to kill him and take the throne for himself and his heirs. In this enchanting story, imagery from Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Richard III underlines the theme that humans must exercise honour and reverence toward the Earth and its creatures, as well as to each other.
