The Lovereading4Kids comment

A thrilling, science-fiction adventure that takes its readers on a journey of discovery and imagination thousands of feet deep, deep into the centre of the earth. When a priceless coded parchment falls from a book, eccentric Professor Lidenbrock and his nephew Axel set about working out its instruction. Once they’ve read it, they set about their exploration, which is a miraculous combination of science and fantasy. As Diana Wynne Jones says in her introduction, as this is an old book the story is slow to unravel but the imagination is unequalled while Professor Lidenbrock has the distinction of being the original mad professor who has had since had many imitators.

About the Author

Jules Verne
Jules Gabriel Verne (February 8, 1828–March 24, 1905) was a French author and a pioneer of the science-fiction genre. Verne was noted for writing about cosmic, atmospheric, and underwater travel before air travel and submarines were commonplace and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated novelist in the world, according to the Index Translational statistics. Some of his books have also been made into films.
