Prince Caspian - C. S. Lewis

The second book in the Chronicles of Narnia (shown here with the "suitable for adults" cover since I couldn't find the one I wanted on tells of the second trip to Narnia by Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. Though only a year has passed since their first visit, they find themselves in Narnia hundreds or even a thousand years later, and in the middle of an interesting political situation.

Narnia has changed; it is ruled by people who have driven out or killed the talking animals, fauns, centaurs, and other creatures they're uncomfortable with. They've put the trees to sleep and shackled the river, and basically taken the magic out of it. Prince Caspian, the rightful heir, has heard stories and would love to see the return of Old Narnia, but his usurping uncle Miraz will have none of it. The four siblings appear in Narnia and are given the opportunity to help Caspian regain the throne.
