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.
