A fantasy novel, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader features a variety of supernatural elements, including magic spells, invisibility, fantastic creatures like dragons and mermaids, and the ability to travel between different worlds. The supernatural elements of the story blend cleanly into the mystical ones, and it can be difficult to know where magic ends and spiritual miracles begin. Supernatural elements in this book are used for awakening awe and belief, which can then be redirected toward more spiritual ends.
Magic in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader serves to capture the attention of the characters and the reader, but it ultimately redirects that attention toward miracles and spiritual truths.
The presence of other supernatural creatures in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader serves to conceal the strangeness of Aslan himself.
