From the Earth to the Moon - Phoenix Science Fiction Classics (with Notes and Critical Essays) Paperback edition by Jules Verne
Collecting "Five Weeks in a Balloon", "Around the World in Eighty Days", "A Journey to the Center of the Earth", "From the Earth to the Moon", "Round the Moon", "Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" and "The Mysterious Island", this title offers a compilation of seven of Jules Verne's Voyages.
Professor Aronnax, his faithful servant, Conseil, and the Canadian harpooner, Ned Land, begin a hazardous voyage to rid the seas of a little-known and terrifying sea monster. However, the "monster" turns out to be a giant submarine, commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo, by whom they are soon held captive.
A group of men escape imprisonment during the American Civil War by stealing a balloon. Blown across the world, they are air-wrecked on a remote desert island. In a manner reminiscent of Robinson Crusoe, the men apply their scientific knowledge and technical skill to exploit the island's bountiful resources.
Describes the journey made as a wager by the Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg, who succeeds - but only just - in circling the globe within eighty days. Fogg's obsession with his timetable is complemented by versatility of his French manservant, Passepartout, whose talent for getting into scrapes brings colour to the race against time.
One boy, penniless and in rags, forced to beg in the street. The other, a king's son, coddled and given all he could want. What happens when the two boys change clothes and places and learn how the other half lives? This novel is about the thin line that separates prince and pauper.
Join Professor Aronnax on a thrilling and dangerous journey far below the waves where he encounters something extraordinary: the mysterious Captain Nemo and his futuristic submarine, a vessel that Verne imagined but had not yet been invented. Intended for young readers, this title is part of the "Classic Starts[trademark]" series.
