Publisher Comments:

When Professor Von Hardwigg and his nephew Henry discover a mysterious parchment, little do they know that it will change their lives forever.

After many hours of studying the manuscript, and a great deal of painstaking research, they finally decipher the hidden code. It dates back to the sixteenth century, and is written by an Icelandic philosopher, who claims to have found a passage to the centre of the Earth. Is it a hoax? Or is it the greatest scientific discovery of the day? There is only one way for them to find out.

And so begins an adventure where the two men, accompanied by their guide Hans Bjelke, set out to climb Mount Sneffels. On reaching the top of the mountain, they search for the crater that will supposedly take them to the centre of the Earth. The promise of finding a subterranean fantasy world, filled with prehistoric life forms and mythical monsters, drives them on. Will they really reach the centre of the Earth, or is it all a myth?

About the Author

Jules Gabriel Verne was born in Nantes, France on February 8, 1828. Over the following 77 years, he became both a prodigious writer and a creator of characters that came to be known throughout the world. His work continues to live on well beyond his death and he is known by many as the father of modern science fiction.

His stories revolved around the use of technologies of the day, such as in his novels Five Days in a Balloon and Around the World in Eighty Days. However, what made Verne really stand out were the flights of fancy he took with regard to the potential advances in technology. His fantastic creations were based, in many respects, on a keen understanding of science and the way it was moving forwards.
