"There was once a boy named Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." -C.S. Lewis in the opening of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
The author who is known to have written so many thick
books on Christian living, making him seem almost disconnected with the regular man, starts off showing that he is not with this bit of humor. Lewis then goes on to construct a wonderful story where he ties in lessons of virtue throughout. One of my favorite reads, even when I first read it at eight years old.
