In JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH an ancient book is opened by the eccentric Professor Lidenbrock and his life - and the life of his nephew Axel - is changed for ever. An old piece of paper has tumbled from the book, a priceless parchment that will lead them on a terrifying journey to find what lies at the centre of the Earth.
A timeless adventure, brilliantly introduced by the late Diana Wynne Jones, one of Britain's top fantasy and sci-fi writers for children.
The book includes a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more.
