An ancient book is opened by the eccentric Professor Lidenbrock and his life - and the life of his nephew Axel - is changed for ever. An old piece of paper has tumbled from the book, a priceless parchment that will lead them on a terrifying journey to find what lies at the centre of the Earth. A timeless adventure, brilliantly introduced by the late Diana Wynne Jones, one of Britain's top fantasy and sci-fi writers for children.

About the Author

Jules Verne (1828-1905) was born in Nantes, France. His father wanted him to study Law, but Jules preferred theatre and writing. Known as the pioneer of science fiction, his best-known novels include Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1869) and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873).

Praise For…

“The reason Verne is still read by millions today
is simply that he was one of the best storytellers
who ever lived.”—Arthur C. Clarke
