Publisher: Macmillan

A sequel to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952) takes Eustace Scrubb, who went with the Pevensie children on their last voyage to the make believe land of Narnia, on a return trip--his time with a school friend Jill. In Narnia, Aslan the friendly lion commissions them to hunt for lost prince Rilian. After adventures with enchantresses and monsters, they find the prince, return to their hated school (which by way of sounding off against "progressive education," Mr. Lewis has described as a place full of trumped-up psychological problems) and as if by magic change it for the better. English fantasy we hope some young Americans may fancy.
