A to Z Challenge - Favourite Books - Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Voyage of the Dawn Treader, every other book in the Chronicles of Narnia, and all of C.S. Lewis' other work.

The only ones I haven't read yet are Boxen, and his journals from his 20s, All My Life Before Me (I'm halfway through).

I mentioned Pauline Baynes yesterday; here are a few of her Chronicles of Narnia illustrations:

the cover
Reepicheep
Eustace as a dragon
the loveliest, cosiest ship ever

Lucy and Mr Tumnus:

Also, a highly respectable marshwiggle:

No wait, that's a Neil Gaiman.

I meant Puddleglum:

Visiting from the A-Z challenge--loved your blog! I'm no fan of the Narnia series, but this visual "summary" was excellent. Thanks for sharing!
