20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Scholastic Classics)

by

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Scholastic Classics) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Science, vengeance, high adventure, submarines, lost cities, battles with giant squid, and one of the most compelling and tragic characters in all of literature: the fascinating Captain Nemo. It seems that Jules Verne wrote the ultimate steam-punk novel in 1869. Sure, you'll hear plenty of buzz about stuff written to capture the excitement of the steam-punk aesthetic, and some of it's even pretty good, but this classic novel deserves your full attention as well.

One of the most thrilling science fiction adventures of all time, now with an introduction by Bruce Coville.

A huge sea monster has attacked and wrecked several ships from beneath the sea. Professor Arronax bravely joins a mission to hunt down the beast. He goes aboard the Nautilus, a secret submarine helmed by the mysterious Captain Nemo.

At first, the mission is exciting, as Nemo takes Arronax on a voyage around the underwater world. But when things start to go wrong, Arronax finds there's no escape from the Nautilus. He is now Captain Nemo's captive--20,000 leagues under the sea!
