The Professor Otto Lidenbrock finds in an old book a parchment that contains a message encrypted written in runic characters. The message is deciphered by Axel, grandson of the renowned professor of mineralogy he teaches in a prestigious gymnasium in Hamburg where he lives. The Latin text contains the directions to reach the center of the earth through a volcano, the Snaeffels in Iceland. The pocket classics: a new necklace that offers children the most popular and famous novels of all time together with pearls to be rediscovered. The cover graphics, entrusted to the hands of Edwin Rhemrev, a young Dutch illustrator, approaches the very young generations to timeless books, too often deemed far from the contemporary imagery. Reading age: for 10 years.
