I had a post about the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books all set to publish this morning (with an aside about why are movies rarely as good as the book version?), when I happened upon the first sneak peek trailer of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the third of the Chronicles of Narnia brought to life.

I discovered the trailer at Melissa Wiley's excellent blog, often a source for great family-friendly fiction. (She herself is author of the Martha and Charlotte books in the Little House series. )
Are you excited to see the newest Narnian adventure? Do you think it will be as good as the book?
I'm not hoping for that--nothing could really match any of the Narnia Chronicles--but I do hope it is better than Prince Caspian movie version, which strayed so far from the book as to be almost unrecognizable. We still enjoyed Prince Caspian at our house, and I consider it a "Narnian" movie, but was frustrated by how much is changed. I hope that don't do that for Voyage of the Dawn Treader. There's so much good story there the filmmakers don't need to change a thing. I admire greatly Michael Apted, director of Voyage of the Dawn Treader, for his excellent Amazing Grace and the moving and groundbreaking "Up" series"Up" following the lives of a group of English people every seven years. So I have to confess I have pretty high hopes for this one.
