9780007372379: Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘From that hour we had no further occasion for the exercise of reason, or judgment, or skill, or contrivance. We were henceforth to be hurled along, the playthings of the fierce elements of the deep.’

In Verne’s science-fiction classic, Professor Lidenbrock chances upon an ancient manuscript and pledges to solve the mysterious coded message that lies within it. Eventually he deciphers the story – that of an Icelandic explorer who travels to the centre of the earth, finding his way there via a volcano.

Inspired by the manuscript, The Professor is determined to follow in the explorer’s footsteps and builds a crew of men which includes his nervous nephew Axel. Together they begin their journey to the centre of the earth, facing fearsome danger and adventure at every turn.

Review:

'These two new graphic novel series bring to life the greatest stories ever told in comic strip form' -- C-details 2008

For kids who came of age after World War II, Classics Illustrated was our first encounter with stolen--or, put more mildly, borrowed--goods. How many kids, from the '40s through the '60s, first encountered Captain Ahab or Jean Valjean or Madame Defarge in the pages of those comics with the unforgettable yellow logo in the top left corner of the cover? Did we know who Charles Dickens was, or Victor Hugo, or Herman Melville? Probably not. We just knew that these were good stories, to be read and reread and passed around. -- Newsweek 2009

My senior year in high school, I took a test on "A Tale of Two Cities," a book I had somehow failed to read. What I had read, years before, was the Classics Illustrated version--read it so often that I had the story pretty much by heart. I aced the test.
--Newsweek 2009

"My son Jack didn't like English at high school so I bought him a lot of comic versions of classic books such as Jekyll And Hyde, Kidnapped and Macbeth - now he wants to go to see the Shakespeare play.
"It's a great way to get people to read. The problem is that there just aren't enough comics out there any more."
Ian Rankin - author --Ian Rankin 2008

(For) 5th-6th Grade English And Literature - Classic Illustrated and a newer series called Marvel Illustrated are ideal for these grades and age groups, these titles can be used to enhance the story or novel that the student is reading, the issues can also bring the material more to life, also the issues can help those students that may be struggling in reading or comprehension by matching the words with illustrations. --comicsintheclassroom Feb 2009
