A must of teachers of marine science and an excellent adaptation of the original work. Nov. 7 2009
By John Joyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As someone who treasures the original Disney comic book adaptation of the 1954 film version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, I was delighted with this version, that is faithful to the Jules Verne original. OK, so the design of the comic is a bit basic and Captain Nemo seems to have only one facial expression, but there is a great sense of the orignal book here and also a wealth of additional educational material at the back. This includes a biography of Jules Verne, an outline of the book and its journey into film, as well as a track of the voyage of the Nautilus and footnotes throughout the book on points of interest.

Definitely as educational as it is entertaining, this is a great introduction to the work and definitely something every junior science teacher should have in their bookcase as a basis for lessons about the sea.
