The Lion and the Dragon

by Sophia Hiser

In The Voyage of the Dawntreader, C.S. Lewis depicts Eustace as a dragon to show his greed for treasure. Once Eustace discovers his own sin, Aslan comes to rip off his dragon skin and change him back into a boy. Aslan brings this transformation, and changes Eustace to a boy of kindness and deeper compassion.
