A vibrant retelling of Jules Verne's classic tale of a world hidden in the middle of the earth

A secret message put Axel and his uncle, Otto Lidenbrock, professor of mineralogy, into great adventures, leading them to descend all the way to the center of the earth! I carefully took the book in my hands, when suddenly through its pages slipped a small piece of paper folded in four. It was a secret message, the beginning of a great adventure for me and my uncle Otto Lidenbrock—the famous professor of mineralogy.
