The review of this Book prepared by Neil Morey

"There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." So starts one of the best books in the Narnia series. Lucy and Edmund must stay with their aunt and uncle and dread cousin, Eustace, during the summer. When they are drawn into Narnia, Eustace comes, too, and perforce tags along when they join Prince Caspian's sea journey of exploration. Eustace is miserable on the journey, and makes everyone else's life miserable, too, until he has a private adventure and a major change of heart.
The review of this Book prepared by Ivy

The longest, funniest, and most complex in plot of the classic Narnia series. Probably best to read this after 'Lion, Witch, Wardrobe' and 'Prince Caspian', and before 'The Silver Chair' and 'The Last Battle'.

Lucy and Edmund accidentally drag their obnoxious cousin Eustace Scrubb into a sea borne voyage of adventure, discovery, and growing up. Dragons, dwarves, slavery, sea monsters, and the Edge of the World. And back.
