Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What a stunning discovery: an old, coded note that actually contains directions for reaching the Earths very core! And once he finds it, renowned geologist Professor Liedenbrock cant resist setting out with his 16-year-old nephew to go where only one man has gone before. Jules Verne takes young readers on one of the most incredible journeys ever imagined, from Icelands frozen tundra far down into fantastic underground prehistoric worlds and back up again through the fires of an erupting volcano.

Synopsis:

What would happen if Martians landed on Earth—and none of our weapons could stop them? H.G. Wells's classic novel imagines this frightening scenario. The horrifying bug-like extraterrestrials wipe out crowds with a single heat-ray, wreaking havoc across the English countryside. Narrated by an unnamed protagonist who flees home to seek out safe ground, this terrifying tale will rivet kids and adults alike.

About the Author

Herbert George "H. G." Wells (September 21, 1866-August 13, 1946) was an English author, best known for his work in the "speculative fiction" genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics, and social commentary. Wells is sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction," along with Jules Verne. The War of the Worlds was written in the age of British colonialism, and Wells came up with the idea for the story while he and his brother were imagining what might happen if someone came to colonize England the way England had other countries.

Arthur is currently the US representative to the European Institute for the Media and European Advertising Standards Alliance. He lives in New York, NY.
