Before the train gets to them, they begin to feel the pull of magic on them, and they find themselves in a place they assume to be Narnia. However, they are on an island and they cannot find anything that they recognize from their first trip. When they go to explore the nearby ruins, they discover that they are in the remains of what had once been the castle of Cair Paravel. They also discoverd their gifts in their Treasure Chamber; Lucy found her healing cordial and dagger, Edmund found his sword, Peter found his sword and shield, and Susan found her bow and arrows; but her horn was missing.
Soon after this, they rescue the red dwarf Trumpkin from the Telmarines , and he explains that in the absence of Narnian rulers the Telmarines had invaded Narnia and driven all of the Old Narnians who were left into hiding in the woods.
But the rightful Prince Caspian, under the tutorship of Dr. Cornelius, had learned all about the Narnians, and he loved their stories. As a result, Caspian's uncle, King Miraz, was set to kill him.
Review: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian – C.S Lewis
Originally, Miraz hadn't wanted to kill Caspian, but only because he had no heir of his own. After his son was born, he no longer had any use for Caspian, and so planned to have him assassinated. And after much debate, Caspian had blown the horn that Dr. Cornelius had given to him - the one that had belonged to Queen Susan - and its magic had brought the four children back into Narnia. The children hurried to the boat to save the dwarf.
He invited them to have a breakfast together, and afterward, he started the story he kept for himself for such a long time. He mentioned Narnians, new reigning order, and fights. The prince Caspian lived in a large castle in the center of Narnia, together with his uncle Miraz and his redheaded wife, queen Prunaprismia. Caspian was growing up and starting to form his own opinions.
He admired the old Narnia, that he found a lot about from the bedtime stories that his elderly nanny used to tell him. One day, he answered to his uncle that he would rather live in the old Narnia when all the animals were able to talk and handsome people were living inside the streams and trees.

Dwarfs were also there, together with the fauns in the wood. Lucy, Susan, Edmund, and Peter reigned after killing the witch, and there was the lion Aslan as well, who arrived from the other side of the sea. Miraz got furious after hearing that, asking about who told him all of that nonsense.
Caspian replied him that nanny was the source of the information, so she has removed away from the boy soon after, and their further contact was prohibited as well.
Caspian got a new teacher and immediately become fond of him because Cornelius was a very lovable person. He was the smallest and thickest person Caspian ever met. He had long and silver pointed beard. His voice was serious, but his eyes were filled with happiness. Doctor Cornelius taught Caspian many things, but Caspian kept asking about the history of Narnia and the four of the children who saved Narnia, among the other things.
A couple of days later, Cornelius lectured him about astronomy and the rare phenomenon of interplanetary conjugation, visible only once in every couple of centuries. Early in the morning, his tutor woke him and handed him a couple of blankets and a pair of warm boots. Caspian followed his teacher through the halls, staircases and then finally, they were on the roof, beside the central tower of the castle. Doctor Cornelius brought Caspian here in order to tell him everything about the old Narnia without a fear of getting eavesdropped.
Cornelius decided to share his knowledge with Caspian because he had a few reasons for doing so; he got too old for keeping the secret memories that were causing him a lot of pain and he felt like his heart will burst if he kept silent. The second reason was the Caspian was capable of helping the old kingdom of hidden Narnians, despite the effort of reigning Telmarines who are trying to exterminate every bit of old Narnia, led by his uncle Miraz.
When Caspian becomes a king, he can gather wise magicians, search all the hiding shelters and wild areas and check if there is any fauns, dwarfs or talking animals left. After that first night, Caspian and his teacher kept on having the conversations about Narnia.
Caspian, as a result of those conversations, learned a lot about the old Narnia, and soon he began lusting and daydreaming about it in all of his spare time.
One day, while things in Narnia kept on getting worse, his teacher packed him a bag with food and sent him far away from the castle, giving him cape and sword as well, and assuring him he is the only one who could make things better, as a valid descendant of king Caspian the Ninth.
Caspian understood nothing, but the teacher kept on explaining him the intentions of his uncle Miraz. He wanted to exterminate every part of the old Narnia, including Caspian as well. The teacher showed him the horn, the greatest and more sacred treasure in all of the Narnia.
Prince Caspian (book)
Everyone who blows that horn can expect miraculously, yet unexplainable assistance in danger. Caspian went into the deep forest, followed by his horse and fully equipped, and the teacher left in the opposite direction, in the attempt of keeping them unnoticeable.
After long walk and search, Caspian fell asleep on the ground and woke up in the unknown area, among the strange company. He was surrounded by three dwarfs- Trufflesearch, Nickabrick and Trumpkin. After he explained everything to them, they agreed to back him up, providing him a place to stay and help with meeting the other creatures from the old days.
Through various adventures and walks in the wood, Caspian met the inhabitants who were living there secretly. He met squirrel Pattertwig, visited the Seven Brothers of Shuddering Woods and found the cave of the black dwarfs as well.
Not all of his visits were pleasant as the visit to the welcoming prophet and astronomer Burodolsky, who knew the reason for their visit immediately.
Prince Caspian (book)
Soon he met a fighting mouse and the rest of his species, fauns, badgers and many others. They all agreed and gathered together in keeping the old Narnia and conquering the Telmarinians.
Luck soon turned against them, as the patrol of king Miraz soon uncovered their shelter so the king and his army surrounded the wood. Caspian was becoming increasingly difficult to watch the arrival of the new troops by each passing day. The old Narnians kept on fighting despite their wounds. Trumpkin, Cornelius,badger and Nickabrick joined Caspian around the Stone table, encouraging him to use the horn. The horn brought the children to the Narnia as they were needed for providing help.
The dwarf first doubted in the strength of the children because he was expecting strong warriors but Lucy, Susan, Edmund, and Peter assured him in the great strength of the power within them and their presents as well.
Soon they decided to leave with their equipment and willing to win, taking a journey towards prince Caspian. The journey lasted for a long time, and they had to overcome many obstacles as well. They were searching numerous shortcuts and tried to remember the shortest paths leading them to the place where the battles were fought.
One night Lucy saw Aslan, and no one believed her, assuming the weariness got her hallucinating. Only Edmund was partially believing in her story. During that night, while the rest of the children were sleeping, she saw the trees which were calling her and dancing using acrobat moves. She followed them into blank space surrounded by branches where the Aslan was standing. Aslan wanted them to follow him, taking them slowly in the unknown direction.
Only Lucy was able to see him, and the rest of the children followed her lead.
He took them among the dancing trees, but no one was aware of their moves because Lucy was watching only for the Aslan, and the rest of the children got their eyes set on her. Aslan turned around and vanished among the trees. Lucy kept her breath because it appeared as he jumped off of the cliff but she was too overwhelmed with a desire of not losing him out of her sight to stop and think about it.
They finally stopped when Aslan got lost among the cliffs on a path that led to nowhere. However, they kept on following him downhill, trying to stay oriented by going after his shadow.
Over there they ran into Bakh, his wild girls and the many other creatures who were delighted by their presence, so they celebrated their reunion with dancing and singing. They lightened the torches and stepped inside. Behind one door they heard Nickabrick, Cornelius, Trufflesearch and Caspian talking about the help they were expecting at any moment. They even accused Nickabrick of being a traitor, due to his lack of faith.
Nicabrick used magic to call on the witch and the wolf, which resulted in a huge fight, and the help from the boys was required. They finally introduced after killing the witch and the wolf and Peter got to explain Caspian his intention of helping him in becoming a king. They gathered all the help and prepared the army of the old Narnians for further attacks.After a little silent munching they all huddled down together in the moss and dead leaves between four large beech trees.
But, in the main, they had thought only of living to themselves in woods and caves and building up an attempt at Old Narnia in hiding. While they were in Narnia they seemed to reign for years and years; but when they came back through the door and found themselves in England again, it all seemed to have taken no time at all. But however he turned his head and squinted and whisked his beard to and fro, he couldn't quite see his own shoulder.
It took next to no time to explain the whole situation to them and they accepted Caspian at once.
