Did, ah, anyone else - like me - ever READ C.S. Lewis's "Prince Caspian" as a child (or more recently)?

I seem to remember a talking rat called Reepicheep, a disgruntled but lovable talking badger called Nickabrick, one partisan neo-liberal dwarf, one partisan black power/white power (I forget which) dwarf, two public school boys - competent and brave, two public school girls - deferential and brave, and a tousled but lovable CHILD called Caspian. What's THIS shit?:

yeah i read it too! not that i remember anything about it, because 'the hobbit' blitzed my childhood reading by sucking all the pleasure out of the fantasy adventure genre, for me. i feel emotionally blackmailed into entering my nearest multiplex to see it though...
