The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Lucy and Edmund have been sent to stay with their awful cousin Eustace for the holidays and so are delighted when they are recalled to Narnia, even though Eustace comes too. Pulled into the painting of a ship, the three are rescued from the sea by Prince Caspian and crew. Caspian is on a mission to recover the seven lost lords of Narnia, or to find out their fates and avenge them if necessary. The children travel with him around the islands, meeting danger and adventure at every turn. During the course of their adventure they meet a dragon, a sea serpent, a band of invisible people and a magician, but also the Great Aslan himself who gives them a very special promise.
