Now, my funky spiritual conspiracy theory about why that happened can perhaps be saved for another time. But let's turn to the source material. Helen and I are reading it together at the moment; I haven't read it since I was a teenager, and it's the only Narnia book of which that's true. (I somehow didn't own it where I owned the other 6, but found it as part of a set on sale for charity in Sherburn's Co-Operative supermarket. Someone called “Chelsey” had donated the set; I felt horrendously guilty for breaking up the set and only buying the one I needed.)
Today (3rd September) we read Chapter Fourteen – The Beginning of the End of the World. In this chapter, the questing crew of the Dawn Treader discover (from a retired star) that to break an enchantment on the Narnian Lords they have been searching for, they must travel to the very edge of the world.
