The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – Chapter Summaries

Here we have a chapter by chapter look at  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader . It’s doesn’t cover everything from the book, but does capture the major plot points.

  • The Picture in the Bedroom Edmund and Lucy have been stuck with spending the Holidays with their dreadful cousin Eustace Clarence Scrubb. One afternoon, Edmund and Lucy were talking about Narnia, when Eustace over heard them and came in to tease them. It was during this time that a very peculiar thing happened.
  • On Board the Dawn Treader While Eustace was complaining every chance he got. Edmund and Lucy were given a tour of the Dawn Treader. They had only been on the ship for a few days, when Eustace had tried to swing Reepicheep around by his tail, and ended up on the bad side of Reepicheep’s sword.
  • The Lone Islands After walking for a short time on Falimath, Caspian met one of the Seven Lords he was searching for. After boarding the Dawn Treader again, Caspian had some signals run up, for the rest of his fleet to assemble round the point, at Bernstead.
  • What Caspian Did There After marching on the Castle of the Governor, and relieving him of his position, Caspian made the Lord Bern, Duke of the Lone Isles. Next they had the slave trade closed, and Caspian went and rescued his friends.
  • The Storm and What Came of It Three weeks after landing at Narrowhaven, the Dawn Treader, once again, set sail. Lucy really enjoyed the next few days relaxing in the sun playing chess with Reepicheep. It was when the ship had started running dangerously low on fresh water, that they found land for the first time in three weeks. This was when Eustace disappeared.
  • The Adventures of Eustace While the others were all feasting on game they had found on the island, Eustace had found himself in a valley with no idea where he was. The next morning after waking, Eustace found that a very strange change had come over him in the night, and that he didn’t like it too much. After he had gotten used to the change, Eustace found his way back to the others.
  • How the Adventure Ended After helping to restock, and re-mast the ship, Eustace was thinking he may have to be left behind for the rest of the voyage, that was until he had a night time visitor. The day on which they left, Caspian named the Island, Dragon Isle. Then he threw Lord Octesians bracelet to where no one could reach it.
  • Two Narrow Escapes After leaving Dragon Isle, the ship headed for an uninhabited Island they had seen. After exploring it, it was named Burnt Isle. On the next Island, they found the fate of one of the Lords they were searching for, and could not leave the Island fast enough.
  • The Island of the Voices It was on the last day they thought they could continue eastward, that the Dawn Treader came into sight of land. But it wasn’t until Lucy had stopped to remove a stone from her shoe, that they found out they had been cut off from their ship by invisible enemies.
  • The Magician’s Book After feasting and sleeping, Lucy entered the house to complete the task she had been set. When Lucy finally made it to the Last door on the left, after a few distractions. She found, inside, what she was looking for, and began.
  • The Dufflepuds Made Happy After Aslan introduced Lucy to the Magician, she finally got to see what it was, she had made visible. That night, everyone feasted with the magician, and he gave them a very useful gift. The next day, after restocking, the Dawn Treader continued on her voyage.
  • The Dark Island After almost two weeks of sailing, the crew thought they saw land so changed direction towards it. That was when they realized it wasn’t land at all, it was just a complete darkness. Inside was the land where dreams came true.
  • The Three Sleepers They sailed for days with the wind never dying, but always growing softer, until they spotted land. This was the Island some called the Worlds end. Here Caspian, Edmund, Lucy and Eustace feasted at Aslan’s Table, and found three of the lords they were searching for.
  • The Beginning of the End of the World After meeting Ramandu, he explained that to break the enchantment, they must travel as far east as possible, and leave one of their company there. After deciding who would travel with them to the end of their voyage, everyone sat, and feasted at Aslan’s Table.
  • The Wonders of the Last Sea While Drinian was telling Lucy not to mention the Sea People to anyone, Reepicheep and jumped over board thinking the Kng of the Sea People had challenged him. That was when they discovered the water was sweet. Almost as if you were drinking light.
  • The Very End of the World Then there came a time when Lucy, Edmund, Eustace, and Reepicheep had to leave the ship and go on alone in the boat. After days in the boat, Reepicheep had to go on by himself in his Coracle. The children then left the boat as well and waded until they came to land. Here they met Aslan who, once again, sent them home. For this story has now come to an end. But let it be noted, Eustace was a far nicer boy following is adventures in Narnia.

Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are staying with their cousin, Eustace Scrubb at his home, when they are all three suddenly transported to Narnia through a painting of a ship at sea. They land in the Narnian sea next to the boat in the painting, the Dawn Treader. The captain of the ship is determined to be King Caspian X, previously Prince Caspian . He is on a quest to discover the seven lost lords of Narnia. They also meet Reepcheep, a talking mouse, who longs to see Aslan 's country.

They travel to the Lon Islands, where they meet the first lord, Lord Bern, who has participated in the slave trade in the land after being banished by Miraz. Caspian manages to take back the land for the Narnian's and installs Lord Bern as ruler of the land.

The next Island they visit, Eustace escapes in order to avoid helping them. He finds a dragon's lair and becomes greedy at all the wealth so hoards some gold. He falls asleep and when he awakens, he discovers that he has transformed into the dragon. Aslan helps to transform him back into a boy and as a result Eustance became a lot more aware and kinder to his cousins and the crew. Caspian determines that the Lord Octesian must have also been transformed into a dragon and eventually died.

They go to Deathwater Island where they see a pool that converts everything to gold. They determine that Lord restimar has also been turned to gold. They then travel to the Island Where Dreams Come True, which is an island immersed in darkness, and discover Lord Rhoop. They also travel to Island of the Star where three of the Lords are lost in an enchanted sleep. A fallen star on the island, named Ramandu, informs them that the only way to awaken them from their sleep is to sail to the edge of the world and sacrifice a member of their crew. They travel to the edge of the world and only Lucy, Edmund, Eustace, and Reepicheep set sail on a small boat to travel further. Reepcheep gives himself up and travels to the edge, where it is assumed that he reaches Aslan's Country - he is not seen again.

Edmund, Eustace, and Lucy then see Aslan, who tells Edmund and Lucy that they are too old to return to Narnia. They are all sent back to England.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Chapter 8 Summary

Two narrow escapes.

  • The Dawn Treader sails away from Dragon Island and everyone is in high spirits.
  • The next morning they arrive at another island, which is uninhabited and has a few ruined huts, bones, and broken weapons. They speculate that pirates or the dragon attacked the people of the island and drove them away.
  • On this little island they find a coracle, which is a small boat made out of animal hide stretched over a wicker frame. It's just the right size for Reepicheep, so they keep it. They name the place Burnt Island and sail away.
  • For five days the Dawn Treader sails without any adventures. One rainy afternoon everyone gets pretty grumpy, but then the rain stops and Lucy notices something in the water that looks like a series of smooth rocks. The rocks are spaced at wide, even intervals of about 40 feet.
  • The adventurers realize that the things they're seeing can't be rocks because they keep appearing and disappearing. And they're getting closer!
  • The strange things that are not rocks move toward the Dawn Treader faster than it can sail away from them. Everyone holds their breath.
  • Suddenly the enormous head of a monster rears up out of the water on the port side of the ship. It's green and red with purple blotches and looks like a horse's head with fishy teeth and no ears.
  • As the monster rises out of the sea, its neck seems to go on forever, then they realize that that's its body. It's the great Sea Serpent. (You know, the kind of thing people imagine when they think of the Loch Ness Monster.)
  • Everyone grabs weapons and they shoot arrows at it, but there's really nothing they can do. For a moment the monster hovers beside them, its head towering in the air above the ship.
  • Quick as a flash, the monster dives down into the water on the starboard side of the ship. It has made an arch across the Dawn Treader
  • with its body, and as it dives the arch gets smaller.
  • Eustace bravely draws the sword Caspian lent him and hacks at the monster's body. The sword breaks into pieces.
  • Reepicheep shouts to everyone to push instead of fighting. He throws himself against the loop of the sea serpent's body and starts pushing. He's too small to move it himself, but when everyone realizes what he's doing, they start to help.
  • What Reepicheep has realized is this: the monster has made a loop of its body around the ship, and now it's drawing the loop closed. The ship will be crushed!
  • Soon every single person on the ship is pushing against the monster's body. Slowly, with a great deal of effort, they begin to move it toward the stern (the back end of the ship).
  • At the very tip of the ship, they get stuck. Because the Dawn Treader is made to look like a dragon, the stern of the ship is carved to look like a dragon's tail sticking up into the air. Caspian shouts for someone to bring an axe and hack it off.
  • Lucy runs and gets an axe, but before anyone can use it, the serpent pulls harder and snaps off the carved stern of the ship. Luckily, however, the rest of the ship is OK.
  • Exhausted, the adventurers watch as the sea serpent looks for the ship's wreckage in the water. It's too dumb to understand that it didn't crush the ship, so it doesn't pursue them as they sail away.
  • Everyone lies around recovering from the immense physical effort of throwing off the sea serpent. As they start to feel better, they talk and laugh about the experience and praise Eustace and Reepicheep.
  • The Dawn Treader sails on for three more days without incident. Four days after the adventure with the sea serpent, a storm starts to gather, but they sight land. Lord Drinian and Caspian decide to row the ship into a natural harbor along the coast of this new island and wait until the storm passes.
  • They successfully get the Dawn Treader into harbor and sleep on the ship that night. In the morning, they launch a small boat from the ship and go ashore to explore.
  • As they row the boat toward the land, Caspian notices that there are two different streams coming into the bay. Drinian wants to go to the one on the starboard (the right), because it's not as far for everyone to row. Everyone else wants to go to the one to port (the left), because it's in a grove of trees and will shelter them from the rain.
  • Reluctantly, Drinian changes course and the boat heads to the stream to port. The narrator tells us that this small course correction will turn out to be a very good decision.
  • They fill up their casks with fresh water for the ship. By the time they're done, it has stopped raining.
  • Caspian, Eustace, Lucy, Edmund, and Reepicheep go for a hike up a nearby hill. From the top, they can see that the island is small and desolate.
  • As they look toward the eastern horizon, Eustace comments that their voyage is crazy. He says it out of habit, not out of rudeness, like he would have before.
  • Lucy suggests that they hike over to the other stream, the one Drinian wanted to go to. They all agree.
  • They discover that the source of the other stream is a deep mountain lake surrounded by cliffs that block out the wind. They sit down to rest.
  • When Edmund sits down, he finds himself sitting on a rusty old sword. Caspian examines the sword and says that it's Narnian. Lucy discovers that she is sitting on a chain mail shirt. (That's the kind of metal chain shirt that medieval knights wear when they're going into battle.) They all search in the heather and find all kinds of artifacts – a helmet, a dagger, and coins. All of the things are Narnian, and Edmund suggests that perhaps one of the seven lords was here.
  • They are puzzled by the evidence they've found. None of the weapons have any blood on them, and there are no bones. Even if the lord had been eaten by a wild animal, it couldn't have taken off his mail shirt.
  • Feeling creeped out, the adventurers hike down to the place where the stream comes out of the lake. Eustace is about to take a drink of water when Reepicheep and Lucy call out.
  • What Reepicheep and Lucy are pointing to is a life-size statue of a man. The statue, which appears to be made of gold, is lying on the bottom of the pool.
  • Everyone is impressed. Caspian wants to try to get the statue out. Reepicheep suggests diving for it, but Edmund thinks the statue will be too heavy to carry up while swimming.
  • Edmund lowers his spear into the water to measure the depth of the pool. As the spear goes in, Lucy observes that it looks gold, too. Maybe the statue isn't gold but just looks that way due to a trick of the light
  • Edmund drops the spear, saying that it suddenly became heavy. It falls to the bottom of the pool, looking just like the statue.
  • Edmund looks at his boots, then stands up and orders everyone away from the water. They all back away and stare at him.
  • Edmund shows them that, where the water splashed on his boots, they turned to solid gold. The water of the pool is magical and can turn anything into gold.
  • They realize that their "statue" is one of the missing lords. He must have come to the pool on a hot day, undressed, jumped in, and been turned to gold. Lucy is horrified by this strange death. The adventurers feel lucky that none of them dipped their hands or feet into the water.
  • Caspian tests the properties of the water by dipping a sprig of heather into it. When he lifts it out, it is a perfect model of a sprig of heather made of gold.
  • Caspian claims the island and the spring for Narnia. He names it Goldwater Island and orders everyone to keep it secret.
  • Edmund objects, saying that he ranks higher than Caspian in the Narnian monarchy. Caspian lays his hand on his sword.
  • Lucy begs Edmund and Caspian to stop fighting, but then her voice dies away. Everyone looks in the direction she is looking and sees Aslan, the great lion, walking through the heather. He's there for just a moment, then he's gone.
  • The adventurers turn to one another again. They seem to be waking up or coming back to themselves. Caspian asks what they were talking about and apologizes if he was being a jerk.
  • Reepicheep says the island is cursed and they should call it Deathwater Island.
  • Caspian says that's a good name, but he can't remember why. Everyone's memory of the discovery is fuzzy. They head back to where Drinian and the others are camped, then go back to the ship.
  • Later, Drinian says to Rhince that the three monarchs seemed strange when they came on board. They wouldn't or couldn't tell him much, except that they found the body of one of the lords.
  • Rhince observes that they have now found three of the seven lords and only have four more to go!

Book Review

The voyage of the dawn treader — “the chronicles of narnia” series.

  • Adventure , Fantasy

voyage of the dawn treader dragon island

Readability Age Range

  • HarperCollins Children's Books, a division of HarperCollins

Year Published

This fantasy adventure is the fifth book in ” The Chronicles of Narnia ” series by C.S. Lewis, although it was originally published as the third book in the series. HarperCollins Children’s Books, a division of HarperCollins is the publisher.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is written for kids ages 8 and up. The age range reflects readability and not necessarily content appropriateness.

Plot Summary

Edmund and Lucy are spending the summer with their annoying cousin Eustace when all three children are pulled through a magical painting and find themselves in the fantasy world of Narnia. Instead of being in the land of Narnia itself, the children are aboard a sailing ship called the Dawn Treader , and they take part in King Caspian X’s quest to find the seven lost lords of Narnia who went to explore the uncharted Eastern Seas and never returned. Three years have past in Narnian time since the children last saw Caspian.

The Dawn Treader’s first stop is the Lone Islands where the main characters, including Caspian, are kidnapped by slavers. Caspian ultimately manages to re-establish Narnian lordship over the isles, abolish the slave trade there and discover one of the missing lords. Next, the crew endures several days of stormy weather before landing on an island where Eustace is enchanted and turns into a dragon. It is revealed that one of the lost lords was also turned into a dragon and died in that form. Eustace is spared when Aslan, a lion who rules Narnia, changes him back into a human. Then the Dawn Treader narrowly escapes being wrecked by a sea monster before reaching Deathwater Island, a place where they find one of the lost lords turned into a gold statue at the bottom of an enchanted pool.

At the next island, invisible people capture the crew. The captors need a young girl to break their curse. Lucy goes to the abandoned home of a magician and finds the right spell to reverse their invisibility. Lucy is successful, and Aslan arrives to offer her encouragement. The adventurers, along with the crew, set sail again, and rescue one of the lost lords from an island of eternal nightmares. The final three lords are discovered on the island of Ramandu, where they have been under an enchanted sleep for seven years.

With their mission completed, Caspian and his crew decide to sail further and try to reach the world’s end. After a short while, Aslan instructs Caspian to travel home, but without Edmund, Lucy, Eustace and Reepicheep. Reepicheep sails past the end of the world and into Aslan’s country, and Aslan sends the three children back to their own world.

Christian Beliefs

Aslan is a mighty lion, and his character is representative of Jesus Christ. Edmund tells Eustace that Aslan is the son of the unseen Emperor-Beyond-the-Sea. In earlier books in this series, Aslan redeemed Narnia from an endless winter and gave his life to save Edmund. He shows himself briefly when Edmund and Caspian are about to duel, when Lucy is tempted to cast a spell to make herself inhumanly beautiful and when Caspian is about to abandon his kingdom and sail to the end of the world. Aslan is called the highest of all kings, and courageous deeds are done in Aslan’s name. Lucy calls out to Aslan for help, and he delivers the Dawn Treader from the fog of nightmares surrounding the Dark Island. At the end of the novel, Aslan appears to Edmund, Lucy and Eustace as a lamb, before changing into his traditional form. Lucy laments that she doesn’t want to leave Narnia because her own world doesn’t have Aslan in it. He tells her that he does exist in her world, but goes by a different name — the children were allowed to enter Narnia so they could recognize him better on Earth.

When Eustace is desperate to turn from a dragon back into a human, he tries to scratch off his dragon skin, but Aslan has to remove his skin for him. Aslan throws Eustace under water, and Eustace rises from the water as a whole person.

Reepicheep hopes to journey to the end of the world because he believes Aslan’s country, a representation of heaven, is there. Lucy questions whether Aslan’s country is a location that can be reached by physical means. Reepicheep ends the novel by sailing up a waterfall and into Aslan’s country.

Some of the books Lucy finds in the magician’s study are said to be larger than any church Bible. When Lucy first spies the albatross that leads the ship to safety, it looks similar to a cross. Humans from our world are called either Sons of Adam or Daughters of Eve.

Other Belief Systems

Magic appears throughout the novel. The Dufflepuds live on an island overseen by a magician named Coriakin. Lucy is recruited to go into the magician’s house and find his book of spells. When she utters a spell to see what her friends secretly think of her, the narrator pointedly says he will not write down the actual words of the spell. Lucy casts one more spell to make hidden things visible, causing the Dufflepuds to re-appear. Aslan has ordained Coriakin the Magician as the ruler of the island, though Coriakin says he wishes the Dufflepuds could be ruled by wisdom instead of magic. Three of the lost lords are put under an enchanted sleep because one of them grabbed a forbidden stone knife, the same one used by the White Witch to kill Aslan.

Some magic is tied to a location, and some seems to occur naturally. Eustace becomes a dragon, but he simply falls asleep thinking greedy thoughts and wakes up as a dragon. This enchantment is not explained. Reepicheep says that Deathwater Island has a curse on it, but no one discusses who or what might have set the curse in place. The Dark Island is called accursed.

The White Witch, a magic-using villain from a previous book, is mentioned. Edmund suggests that Ramandu’s daughter might be a witch. Ramandu and Coriakin are stars at rest, literal heavenly stars who have been sent to live in Narnia for a time.

Authority Roles

Eustace’s parents do not appear in the novel, but they are mentioned. They consider themselves progressive and will not smoke, drink alcohol or eat meat. They allow Eustace to call them by their first names, and when Eustace becomes kinder after his trip to Narnia, his mother does not like the change in him.

Edmund and Lucy’s parents are also absent — their father is lecturing in America and their mother is spending the summer with him. Their older sister, Susan, accompanies their parents because they believe she will enjoy America more than her siblings. It is too expensive to take all the children.

King Caspian seems to be in his late teens, but he is treated as an adult and serves as the chief authority figure aboard the Dawn Treader. Caspian shows hospitality to his English guests, providing for their needs and making them as comfortable as possible, even letting Lucy take his own cabin as her own while she is on the Dawn Treader .

Caspian insists that Edmund and Lucy, as former rulers of Narnia, should be treated with respect, and he is patient with Eustace’s constant complaints. He experiences some lapses in judgment, such as when he takes a party ashore on the Lone Islands without first learning if the inhabitants are still friendly. His lack of foresight causes his friends to be captured by slavers, but he later uses his ingenuity to save them. Caspian displays greed and selfishness when he fights with Edmund at Deathwater Island, and he becomes angry and demanding when he wants to see the world’s end, abusing his authority by saying that no one aboard the ship has the right to contradict his wishes. Reepicheep reminds Caspian that a king is responsible for his kingdom and subjects and may not leave them behind for private pursuits.

Caspian is called sire and liege , and all members of the crew address Edmund, Lucy and Caspian as Majesty .

Edmund usually defers to Caspian’s authority, but Edmund confronts Caspian on two occasions. On Deathwater Island, Edmund says he is not Caspian’s subject and Caspian actually owes allegiance to him, because Edmund was one of the original Narnian rulers. Again, when Caspian wants to travel to the end of the world, Edmund says that he is not Caspian’s subject and as such, he can contradict Caspian. Edmund is in authority over Eustace, but he has little patience with his cousin, avoids his company and rebukes him for his bad behavior.

Eustace does not recognize any authority or rules, except those that benefit him. He repeatedly requests to meet with a British Consul, a representative of the British Embassy, to air grievances against Caspian.

Lucy holds a unique place in the crew as the only female. She is given special courtesy, and she uses her position to tend the needs of others, especially those of Eustace.

Caspian’s uncle, Miraz, is briefly mentioned as a negative example of authority. Miraz usurped his brother’s throne and strengthened his position by effectively exiling the seven lords who supported Caspian’s father, the rightful king.

The Lone Islands no longer acknowledge Narnia’s lordship over them. Governor Gumpas profits from the local slave trade, but he is deposed and replaced by Lord Bern, who detests slavery and honors Caspian as his king.

Coriakin the Magician rules the island of the Dufflepuds, but the Dufflepuds resent his interference. For their continual disobedience, he turns them into monopods; they have to hop around on one leg.

Aslan is the ultimate authority figure in the novel. When he speaks, he is obeyed.

Profanity & Violence

Eustace is called stinker, blighter and brat . When assonance in poetry is mentioned, Edmund calls it assy-thingummy , though he does not say the word in the same way one would use profanity. For heaven’s sake, by Jove, blasted, blimey, sucking up and drat are used. Reepicheep uses the word poltroon to insult anyone he finds cowardly. A– is used once in reference to a donkey, and once as an insult.

Reepicheep follows a code of chivalry and places a high value on personal combat. He says that the Dawn Treader should have pursued a pirate ship and hanged its crew. When Eustace sneaks up on Reepicheep and swings him around by his tail, Reepicheep retaliates by stabbing Eustace’s hand and hitting him with the flat of his sword. Governor Gumpas is threatened with flogging. When the Lord Octesian dies as a dragon, he convulses and blood flows from his mouth. Shortly thereafter, Eustace, in the form of a dragon, eats Lord Octesian’s remains. A sea serpent attacks the Dawn Treader, but no one is harmed.

Sexual Content

Caspian hints that he’d like to kiss Ramandu’s daughter, but she says that he can’t until he has dissolved the enchantment that holds the three Narnian lords in sleep. The enchantment is broken, and Caspian later marries her. One of the illustrations in one version of this book depicts a topless mermaid.

Additional Comments

Whining and bullying: Before his transformation, Eustace complains constantly and tries to bully his cousins. He puts his own needs first and steals water when it is being carefully rationed.

Alcohol: Edmund, Lucy and Eustace are offered spiced wine when they board the Dawn Treader. Edmund and Lucy accept, but Eustace spits out his drink and asks for a vitamin tonic instead. Ship provisions include casks of beer and bottles of wine. Wine is consumed during meals and used for toasts.

Tobacco: A crewman mentions that he is running out of tobacco.

Literature ties: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader makes brief references to a few other works of literature: the Roman story of “Androcles and the Lion,” donkey-headed Bottom from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream , and “Ulysses and the Sirens” from The Odyssey by Homer.

Producers often use a book as a springboard for a movie idea or to earn a specific rating. Because of this, a movie may differ from the novel. To better understand how this book and movie differ, compare the book review with Plugged In’s movie review.

Book reviews cover the content, themes and world-views of fiction books, not their literary merit, and equip parents to decide whether a book is appropriate for their children. A book’s inclusion does not constitute an endorsement by Focus on the Family.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Did you know

  • Trivia The drawings of the characters during the end credits are the exact drawings that appeared in the book. This is a tribute to Pauline Baynes , the series' illustrator, who passed away on August 2, 2008, at 85.
  • Goofs In The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) , Caspian ( Ben Barnes ) spoke with a pronounced Spanish accent, as did the other Telmarines. In this film, Caspian now speaks with an English accent. This is done purposefully by the filmmakers, who no longer needed to match Caspian's accent to the other Telmarines, so they chose to use the actor's more realistic natural British accent. People's accents change over time in real life as well.

Lucy Pevensie : Will you come and visit us in our world?

Aslan : I shall be watching you always.

Lucy Pevensie : How?

Aslan : In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

Eustace Scrubb

Eustace Clarence Scrubb was the Son of Adam who helped find Prince Rillian , son of Caspian X of Narnia. He also fought at the Battle of Stable Hill at the end of the Calormene Conquest of Narnia. He is also the cousin of the Pevensies . Edmund and Lucy came to stay with him and his family while their parents were on holiday. He was good friends with Jill Pole . This was in the early days.

Eustace was an insufferable boy, who called his parents by their first names, Harold and Alberta , and attended a "modern" school called Experiment House . Though he was younger than Edmund and Lucy , he called them childish because of their belief in Narnia .

Even with his disdain for all four of his cousins, he was glad Edmund and Lucy were coming to stay with him, as he had a chance to bully them. Although he was by no means a fighter (as Eustace was a puny person, not even measuring up to Lucy's height), he had his own means of bullying people, especially when he is in his own house, and they are just visitors.

Eustace was raised by his parents to be a republican, pacifist, vegetarian, tee-totaller (not to drink any alcohol), and to never smoke. He always wore a special kind of underwear, and his bedroom window was never closed.

One of Eustace's hobbies was collecting insects, especially beetles, and pinning them to cards. He hasn't read "the right sort of books" as far as magic and mythical creatures are concerned, as he prefers to read books about science and how things work, as well as some with pictures of grain elevators, or of fat foreign children doing exercises in model schools. He also likes trains.

Pre-Narnia relations

Bossy and nosy, he had no friends. Edmund called him a "record stinker" because of his insistence to write every little detail in his notebook.

Although his cousins never realised this, the real reason why Eustace was so vile towards them was because he was simply jealous of their sibling bond. Not hard to understand, considering he had no friends of his own, and was an only child in a world where he and his parents were considered odd because of their ways.

Whether Eustace's family and the Pevensies regularly kept contact and met up often or not is unknown, but he did meet all the Pevensies at least once, which was a year before Edmund and Lucy came to stay at his parent's house. In that year, he went to stay at the Pevensies, and overheard them talking about Narnia. He enjoyed teasing them about it, thinking that they had simply made the whole thing up, and since he didn't have the imagination to do such a thing himself, he did not approve of that.

He also has a phobia about heights.

Adventure on the Dawn Treader

Through the painting.

Eustace was pulled into Narnia , along with Edmund and Lucy , through a painting in the spare bedroom of his home. The three arrived in the water next to the Dawn Treader , a Narnian ship that carried King Caspian X . Claiming that he was unable to swim, he was pulled aboard the ship, only for him to become furious, as he refused to believe that he really was in Narnia.

He insulted the Dawn Treader , and demanded that he be brought before the British Consul. Believing Reepicheep to be some kind of circus act, rather than a free Narnian, Eustace was disgusted with him.

The mouse challenged him to a duel at one point, after Eustace had insulted him by grabbing his tail and swinging him by it, but Eustace declined on the grounds of being a pacifist. When he did this, Reepicheep began to whip him with the flat of his blade until he was forced to apologise.

The Dawn Treader 's first stop was at the Lone Islands , where Eustace was caught by slave traders, along with Caspian , Edmund , Lucy and Reepicheep . While the others were sold, Eustace himself could not even be given away. When Caspian came to the rescue and saved them all, Eustace was no help at all in restoring governorship of the Lone Islands to Lord Bern , who was still loyal to Narnia.

In the Voyage of the Dawn treader film , Eustace was actually a bit more helpful to the people of Narrowhaven . When he got out of his chains, and fled down to the docks, he accidentally knocked out and presumably killed the corrupt Governor Gumpas .

After suffering damage from a storm, the Dawn Treader landed on an island (which they later named Dragon Island ) to make repairs.

The first afternoon they were on the island, Eustace wandered off to avoid having to do any work. He found a cave with a large dragon outside of it, and watched as it died. After it began to rain, Eustace sought shelter inside the dragon's cave, where he found a large treasure that included a gold bracelet. He put on the bracelet, shoving it partway up his arm because it was too large for him.

He eventually fell asleep, and when Eustace woke up, he awoke to a very strange feeling. Not having read the right sort of books, he did not even realize that he was a dragon, but he did find himself changed and in pain, as the gold bracelet was still on his arm, but was now cutting into his flesh. Going outside to drink, Eustace the dragon ended up eating about half of the dead dragon that he had seen before - after seeing his reflection in the water, and figuring out what had happened.

Eustace tried to get the others' attention by landing on the beach between them and the ship, which led them to think he was an enemy. Lucy noticed how his leg had all swollen up from the bracelet, and tried a drop of her cordial on it. The drop healed the swollen skin, but it didn't change the fact that the bracelet was still cutting into his flesh. After some time of communicating through yes or no questions and shaking heads, Eustace wrote an awkward message in the sand, telling the others what had happened.

As a dragon, Eustace was very useful and helpful to the crew, as they repaired the Dawn Treader , by bringing them large trees, and catching goats for their meals. Being a dragon was lonely, though, most of the time, and Eustace found himself wishing he could talk with the others. Reepicheep would often spend time with him at night, when they were the only ones still awake, and talk to him, telling him stories of his adventures and such.

Unbeknownst to Eustace, the crew were worried about what would happen to him once the repairs were completed, as they were unsure if the ship would hold him. There might even have been talk that they were considering having no choice but to leave him behind.

Finally one night, Eustace heard Aslan calling to him, saying "Follow Me" . Eustace told Edmund later that he was afraid, even though as a dragon he could have eaten any lion; he wasn't afraid of being eaten, he was just afraid.

Following Aslan, he was taken to a pool where he wanted to bathe his leg. Aslan told him that he must first undress. Scratching and clawing himself, Eustace desperately tried to shed his scales like a snake skin. After three times through this ordeal, he began to fear that he would never be rid of the scales. Aslan's voice told him, "You will have to let me undress you," and he tore the skin from Eustace, picked him up, and dropped him into the pool. As Eustace washed, he realized that his arm was no longer in pain because he had turned back into a boy. He returned to the camp and told Edmund what had happened to him, and it was Edmund who revealed that the lion must have been Aslan.

Everyone saw after this that Eustace was a much better natured boy.

The Last Sea and Home

As the Dawn Treader continued her voyage to the end of the world, and eventually came to the Last Sea . It was here that Aslan came to Prince Caspian inside his cabin, and told him that Edmund, Lucy and Eustace were to join Reepicheep in a small boat that would continue to the end of the world, while he and the rest of the crew would turn around and return to Narnia. Caspian was sad to see his friends leave, including his new friend Eustace.

The three children came to what seemed to be yet another island, where they met a small lamb. The lamb spoke to them, and transformed into the lion Aslan, who opened a door back into England for them.

Quest to find Prince Rillian

Experiment house.

After less than a year; Eustace had returned to school. He found a girl named Jill Pole hiding behind the gym at the school, on a dull Autumn day, where she was crying. She had been bullied by a group of children known as " The Gang ." In his misery of being at "The Experiment House" It was there that he revealed to her his secret about his trip to Narnia, and his desire to return there.

They soon called to Aslan , but before they could finish, the gang arrived, chasing the two children to a wall. In the wall there was a door, which was always locked. It was their last chance, however, so Jill and Eustace took the time to try it. It opened, and the two of them found themselves looking out into an entirely different world. In fear of getting caught by the bullies they quickly stepped into it. They soon came to the edge of a cliff, where Jill attempted to show her fearlessness, which only resulted in Eustace falling off the cliff.

After falling from the cliff, Eustace was blown to Narnia on Aslan's breath. Meanwhile, Jill stayed behind and met Aslan . He told her that they were called into Narnia to help find the lost prince Rilian , Caspian X 's only son. Aslan told her four signs that she could go by to find him.

Blown into Narnia

After Jill memorized the signs, she too was blown into Narnia. Upon arrival, she asked Eustace if he recognized a former friend, as this was the first sign, but he failed to do so, seeing only a crowd surrounding an old king.

After talking with Trumpkin the dwarf , Eustace was shocked to hear that Caspian was the old king, and was traveling to Aslan's Country to seek help from the Great Lion, to learn who should be king after him.

The Journey

Jill and Eustace were welcomed by the court, but had to sneak out the same night with Glimfeather , an owl , who brought them to the Parliament of Owls .  He tells them that no one was allowed to go looking for the prince now, because many brave and noble Narnians had tried to find him, and none of them had ever returned.

One of the Owls told them the story of Prince Rilian , after which Eustace and Jill were carried by the owls to the wigwam of a marshwiggle , on the borders of Ettinsmoor. The marshwiggle, named Puddleglum , agreed to help the children search for the lost prince.

They traveled until they met a lady dressed in green, who told them that Harfang, city of the Gentle Giants , would be a good place for them to rest. Upon reaching it, they entered the castle, but the next day they realised that the giants intended to cook them and eat them for their Autumn Feast.

Before escaping, they realized that Harfang was built upon an ancient city, which was the second sign. They also noticed a huge stone with the words "Under Me" . They just managed to escape, but then they accidentally dropped down a deep hole. This was, as Puddleglum pointed out, still following the signs, as the third sign was that they had to do what the writing said.

After what seemed a long time, they were found and taken prisoner by a patrol of gnomes called Earthmen . As they traveled down this hole, they found themselves in a region, which was called Underland. They were taken by a group of the Earthmen to see the Queen of Underland. At first, the gnomes that had taken them decided to lock them up, but a human man, who lived in a more "overworldly" room, invited the travelers up.

The man told them how the "Queen's Grace" saved him from many enchantments, but that he was still under one. He told them not, on any account, to unbind him from the chair that he would be tied to, the Silver Chair , claiming that he would first become a wild man, and kill his friends, and then turn into a serpent. He also told them that the Queen was planning to make him a King of a country in Overland, by breaking up from a tunnel that she was digging up with an army of Earthmen.

The children and the marshwiggle hid, as the gnomes came to bind the man, and they came out of hiding to see him bound to the Silver Chair . He soon went into a hysterical fit, and began pleading with them to release him.

The man kept going on in this way until Jill said she could "hardly bear it" , and then, finally, the prisoner said: -

They realised it was the last sign, and wondered whether they should let a maniac loose on themselves. In the end, though, they decided to risk it, "In Aslan's name" , and they released him. The man then leaped up, and grabbed his sword, but instead of killing them, he destroyed the Silver Chair , hacking it into bits.

Afterwards, the man turned and thanked them, and told them that he was none other than Prince Rilian , the son of Caspian X . Soon, the Lady of the Green Kirtle entered the chamber. She started out angry, demanding who had destroyed the Silver Chair, but then began acting sweet and kind to them all.

They didn't realise this, but she had begun putting them all under a spell, which she did by throwing a handful of green powder on a fire. This, in addition to the Lady's words and music tunes, nearly convinced them that there was no world but Underland .

Puddleglum , however, was able to resist the enchantment, and stamped out the fire. The Queen, losing her temper, then turned herself into a green serpent, and tried to kill Rilian . The prince defended himself, and hacked off the snake's head, along with Puddleglum and Eustace's help.

After a while, they realized that the whole of Underland was caving in, and the four quickly planned their escape, as the water level was slowly starting to rise. The Gnomes, now free from their enchantment after the Lady of the Green Kirtle's demise, were able to help them, after a brief moment of misunderstanding. They concluded the best route of escape would be the tunnel that the Queen was going to use to invade Narnia. They were correct, as at the end of the tunnel there were only a few feet of soil between them and the land above.

Back in Narnia

They escaped, and quickly took Rilian to see Caspian X, who had been told by Aslan to return to Narnia, and that he would find his son. They met, but only seconds after seeing each other after all those years, Caspian X died.

Aslan came, and took Eustace and Jill away to the country where they started. Here, Caspian came back to life, and greeted Eustace, Aslan and Jill. He was sent back into Eustace's world, along with Eustace and Jill, who gave the bullies at the school such a fright and hiding that the Headmaster rang up the police with stories about a lion and lunatics. The end result was that the Headmaster of the school was fired, and the bullies expelled. By then, Caspian and Aslan had long since left.

The Last Days of Narnia

During the reign of King Tirian , the last King of Narnia, Eustace returned to Narnia for the third and final time.

Tirian, upon calling to the children who had been Narnia's saviors in the past, had appeared as an apparition to the Seven Friends of Narnia . When he disappeared, the group agreed that Eustace and Jill were to return, since they alone were the only ones who weren't told by Aslan that they were not too old to return to Narnia.

Since they had not yet been transported magically into Narnia, the group came to the consensus that to return to Narnia, the two should use the rings that Digory and Polly had used before. However, before they could use the rings, they were jerked from their world and dropped into Narnia in front of Tirian .

Upon freeing Tirian, Eustace and Jill attempted to aid him in revealing Shift 's treachery. However, the Narnians, as a whole, could not be convinced. Eventually, Eustace and his companions were forced to confront Shift and his Calormen allies at the Battle of Stable Hill .

  • In the 2010 film, Eustace's time as a dragon is much longer than in the book.  However, his state proves much more tolerable for all involved: Lucy is able to remove the gold bracelet off his arm immediately and Eustace is able to travel with the Dawn Treader with ease. In fact, Eustace the dragon proves a great asset to the crew with him able to tow the ship through magical doldrums and assisting in fighting a sea serpent. In addition, Reepicheep is Eustace's fast companion while in this state, comforting the boy-turned-dragon with stories during peaceful moments while allowing the dashing mouse to ride upon the dragon's head in flight.
  • In the book, Eustace didn't make friends with Jill Pole until after his first adventure in Narnia. Apparently, though, he is friends with her in the 2010 film, as she popped in for a visit at his house at the end of the film.
  • In the book, Eustace refused to duel with Reepicheep, but in the 2010 film the mouse goaded him into it, and he ended up fighting.
  • The name Eustace is an English form of  Eustachius , a Latin form of the Greek name  Ευσταχυς  (Eustachys),  meaning "fruitful".
