Voyage of the dawn treader

"Voyage of the dawn treader" by C.S. Lewis

The Dawn Treader is the ship of Caspian X, King of Narnia, who was the key character in the previous book (Prince Caspian) of “The Chronicles of Narnia”.  This is a high-seas journal of Lucky, Edmond, Caspian and Eustace. King Caspian is revitalizing the traditions of sail in the land of Narnia and searching for the “The seven Lords of Narnia". Lucy & Edmond with their reluctant cousin Eustace are drawn into an enchanted picture and into the land of Narnia, where they  join Caspian in the voyage and discovery, mosty of themselves.  It deals with the most basic human behaviors where with only the guidance of Aslan they can  choose the path of understanding and compassion. Aslan, the "Great Lion,"  serves to guide Lucy, Edmond, Eustace and Caspian, but he appears unambiguously to them only when they put their faith in his will and really try to see him. The adventurers seek the country belonging to Aslan, a Christ-like figure who rules over Narnia in the form of a lion (though he also takes the shape of a lamb there). Aslan tells the children that they must learn to know him by another name in their own country.
