Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—This graphic-novel adaptation of Verne's classic novel follows the underwater adventures of the Nautilus, a high-tech submarine led by Captain Nemo. The story begins with sightings of a strange creature around the world and a decision by the U.S. government to find out what it is. Pierre Aronnax, a scientist, boards the Abraham Lincoln and the crew soon discovers that this beast can't be killed because it is a submarine. The crew members board the Nautilus as prisoners and witness the adventures of the vessel. The illustrations will appeal to young readers, from the cover with deep red tentacles wrapped around the Nautilus to the muscled, comic-book renderings of the characters. The book includes information about Verne and discussion questions and topics for further writing. It is sure to pique the interest of many fans of the format and will help reluctant readers get a taste for Verne's works. The language and dialogue are easy to follow and understand. While the adaptation only skims the original adventures of the Nautilus, it will help to bridge the gap between modern-day children's books and classic literature.—Roberto Zapata, San Antonio Public Library, TX

Meet the Author

Jules Verne was born on February 8, 1828, in France. Growing up near a river, the constant sight of ships sparked his interest in travel. As a young man, Verne even tried to run away and become a cabin boy. Fortunately, his father caught him, and soon Verne was off to study law in Paris. While there, Verne escaped the boredom of his studies by writing stories. When his father found out about this hobby, he stopped sending money for school. Verne started selling his stories, many of which became popular, including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1870. Before he died in 1905, the author bought a boat and sailed around Europe.
