About The Book

Set off on unbelievable adventures with eight of Jules Verne’s most popular adventure and science fiction novels in this seven-volume paperback collectible boxed set—now with an arresting new look!

When Professor Lidenbrock, in Journey to the Center of the Earth, finds a coded journal describing a path into the center of the Earth, it’s his nephew, Axel, who cracks the code, and the two head to Iceland to locate the hidden route.

From the Earth to the Moon and its sequel, Around the Moon, combined here in one volume, have members of a post-American Civil War gun club set an extreme challenge to build a gun large enough to shoot a man to the moon. The engineering challenge undertaken in part one culminates in three voyagers’ expedition to the moon and back in part two.

A message in a bottle launches a rescue expedition for a shipwreck to many possible countries on the thirty-seventh parallel south where the stranded captain could be in In Search of the Castaways.

When word about sightings of a sea monster spread in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, three men embark on a journey to find the creature. But they soon find themselves in the belly of the beast—an underwater vessel named the Nautilus manned by Captain Nemo. The trio then encounters giant sea creatures, sunken treasure, and even the lost world of Atlantis.

In Around the World in 80 Days, Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune in a bet that it’s possible to travel around the world in eighty days. Fogg’s meticulous planning maps out he and his valet’s route as they travel by boat, train, carriage, and elephant from one country to the next. But unbeknownst to Fogg, the trip is being shadowed by a detective convinced Fogg is a bank robber running from justice.

The Mysterious Island features five prisoners of war who steal a hot air balloon and escape capture in Virginia during the American Civil War. They fly for several thousand miles until crash landing on an unknown island in the Pacific. They work together to survive, but the island has its secrets—and is not as deserted as first thought.

In Off on a Comet, a comet collides with Earth, causing a portion of the world to go floating off into space with it. On this new asteroid, thirty-six survivors of various nationalities will first need to uncover the mysteries of their circumstances before they learn about and adapt to their new environment. But when it’s determined the comet is on a return course to Earth, can the group survive long enough to devise a plan to get back on the planet?
