When Professor Lidenbrock and his nephew, Axel, find a secret paper telling them the way to the centre of the earth, the adventure of a lifetime begins.

With a guide called Hans, they discover the mysteries and wonders of the world below the earth's surface. They survive electric storms on underground oceans, and even a fight between prehistoric sea-monsters.

But what other dangers wait for them, as they go deeper and deeper into the earth? And will they ever return to the surface again?

Jules Verne lived in France over one hundred years ago. He became famous for writing stories based on scientific advances that he thought would be made in the future.
