A world-famous classic novel is the basis for this brand-new, dramatically illustrated book. Transformed from Jules Verne's original text into a graphic novel, this, like other Graphic Classics editions, makes a good introduction for young readers to the imaginative riches of literature. These books contain many extra features, including brief biographies of their authors, a list of each author's important works, a glossary, and an index. Suitable for classroom use as introductions to literature for junior and senior high school students, these graphic novels entertain young readers while introducing them to the works of renowned literary artists. Full-color illustrations throughout. In this pioneering science fiction tale from a nineteenth-century French novelist, a scientist and his young nephew enter a volcano's crater and descend deep into the earth, where they encounter strange and exciting challenges.
