Although I've read every book in The Chronic(what)cles of Narnia more than three times, except for The Last Battle, my favorite is The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Influenced by Lewis's love of tales of the journeys of knights, Voyage takes Edmund, Lucy, Caspian and Eustace, among others, on a journey to several different islands to find the seven lost Lords of Narnia. Crazy hijinks ensue and we get to spend time with my all time favorite Narnian- Reepicheep. Small, fiesty and fiercely loyal, Reepicheep is just the best. On an unrelated note, let's pretend that the most recent movie version of this does not exist.
PS- Was anyone else bummed when they realized that they were too old to go to Narnia? Or that they would never get a letter from Hogwarts? I totally was/am.
