Children's Week: Review: Prince Caspian (Narnia)

We're celebrating Children's Week with a series of reviews, articles and interviews by or with kids! To see all our Children's Week posts, click here.

The book Prince Caspian is about four children called Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. They all get transported to Narnia when they were waiting for the trains to go to boarding school. They had to get split up because the boys went to one school and the girls went to another. When they got to Narnia they had an adventure with Prince Caspian that I found very interesting.

What I Liked
I liked the book Prince Caspian because it was very wondering and full of mystery. The blurb was very convincing so I could not help reading the book.

What I Didn’t Like
It took a while to get into the book and get to the interesting parts of the story. It was also a bit disgusting when they had to skin the bear.

My Opinion
This book was boring and then interesting and it kept going on like that. It had weird words that I found sort of hard to pronounce such as names and words like Trumpkin, Aslan, Nikubrik and Trufflehunter. It also had very good descriptions.

Conclusion
I thought this was a great book to read and I am very pleased we read this in book club.

  1. I love the Narnia series. I enjoyed Prince Caspian when I read it but I think my favourite is The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. :-)

  2. Hi Sophie--loved your review of Prince Caspian. I am obsessed with the Narnia series and would say it's one of my favourites of all time. I love The Magician's Nephew because it starts the whole journey and I still remember reading it as a child. It was enchanting. You must read it.

  3. I love the Narnia series, too. Thanks for your great review of Prince Caspian, Sophie. I'm glad that you presevered through the slow start to discover that the story was a great adventure.
