A Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Paperback)
Middle school and older readers will enjoy this action adventure novel exploring the deepest bowels of the earth. Jules Verne was born in 1828 in France. His dream was to write a new kind of novel, which combined scientific fact with fiction. Verne eventually wrote 40 novels in his Voyages extraordinaires series. "What one man can imagine, another will someday be able to achieve." Is a quote from an article in the Encyclopedia Britannica that sums up Verne so well. A Journey to the Centre of the Earth is an adventure novel set below the earth's surface. Three men decide to explore a passage that leads from a volcano into the depths of the earth. They face dangers and an uncertain future.
