Product Description

Amazon Review

The adventures of the enigmatic Captain Nemo and his fantastic submarine "Nautilus" have Made 20,000 Leagues under the Sea a legend in science fiction. This exciting retelling captures the essence of Verne's visionary and unforgettable story, while also explaining the fascinating facts and fantasies of Captain Nemo's marvellous ocean realm.

However, as you would expect being a Dorling Kindersley book, there is much more to this edition than an expert retelling of the story. With colour photographs, diagrams, narrative illustrations and a unique cross-section of the "Nautilus" this edition also explores Verne's unique vision and knowledge of the deep, adding an extra dimension to the excitement of this thrilling adventure story. (Ages 8 to 12)

I spend a lot of time reading, so a lot of novels pass before my eyes. When I first read this book I was in shock, I did not think such a great novel existed. I loved this book and I still enjoy it no matter how many times I read it. I have but one complaint to make, there is far too much scientific detail on fish. I mean who cares, this is not a book for professors of science.
