The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Title: The chronicles of Narnia : Prince Caspian

Author: C.S. Lewis

Main Characters: Dryads, Prince Caspian, Edmund, Lucy, Peter, Susan, Aslan, Hamadryads, Trumpkin, Trufflehunter, Miraz and Dr. Cornelius

Description of One of the Main Characters: Dryads are trees which can dance and sing. They can also speak. They are the tallest trees in Narnia. They are very helpful during the war against Miraz. The old coward Miraz is afraid of tall trees. Hamadryads are brothers of Dryads. They are not so tall as the Dryads but as brave as them.

Whom I like and Why: I like Trumpkin as he is a wise dwarf. He is loyal to the High King Peter. He believes is Aslan, The Great Lion Of Narnia. He is brave and daring. Trumpkin is a old, true Narnian. His family has lived in Narnia for years unlike Prince Caspian.

Whom I dislike and Why: I dislike Trufflehunter as he is a traitor. He always speaks great about the White Witch. He says that Aslan doesn't give any respect to dwarfs. He neither believes in Aslan or the High Kings of Narnia.

Setting/Theme of the Story: Prince Caspian, the new nephew of King Miraz runs away from the castle as Miraz and his wife plan to kill him. He has a tutor named Dr. Cornelius who also lives in the castle. His tutor was a half-dwarf and an old Narnian. Prince Caspian faints half-way during his escape from the castle. When he opens his eyes he finds himself with fauns, centaurs and badgers. He meets Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. He meets all the old Narnians who still live in Narnia. They all wage a war against Miraz and win. Prince Caspian becomes the new King of Narnia and further North. Aslan forms a door in the air and sends back Lucy, Peter, Edmund and Susan to their own land. They are really happy to visit Narnia once again.

Part I enjoyed the most: I enjoyed the part when Prince Caspian defeats his uncle and saves Old Narnia.

Different Ending: Uncle Miraz was sent to Archeland’s great dungeon by Caspian to get rid of all the evil thoughts and become a new good man who is loyal. Caspian and the others rule the land wisely.
