Overview

While Uncle Lubin naps, his beloved nephew Peter is carried off by a loathsome bag-bird. This playful and richly imaginative tale recounts Uncle Lubin's hot pursuit, as he searches everywhere from the moon to the bottom of the ocean. The clever hero invents an air-ship as well as a submersible sea-boat, the better to triumph over a sea-serpent, an iceberg, and other fanciful obstacles.
Every page of the enchanting 1902 adventure features W. Heath Robinson's remarkable pen-and-ink drawings. A leading figure from the Golden Age of book illustration, Robinson depicts the story's comic absurdities with an imaginative zest that delights readers of all ages.

Bought this for my four year old. He wanted me to read it to him so many times. It's a wonderful story to encourage the imagination. Definitely recommend it for young imaginations.
