Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea - By Jules Verne. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Se...a (French: Vingt mille lieues sous les mers: Tour du monde sous-marin, literally Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas: An Underwater Tour of the World) is a classic science fiction novel by French writer Jules Verne published in 1870. It tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus, as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax after he, his servant Conseil, and Canadian whaler Ned Land wash up on their ship. On the Nautilus, the three embark on a journey which has them going all around the world. The novel was originally serialized from March 1869 through June 1870 in Pierre-Jules Hetzel's periodical, the Magasin d?Éducation et de Récréation. The deluxe illustrated edition, published by Hetzel in November 1871, included 111 illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and Édouard Riou. The book was highly acclaimed when released and still is now; it is regarded as one of the premiere adventure novels and one of Verne's greatest works, along with Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth. The description of Nemo's ship, the Nautilus, was considered ahead of its time, as it accurately describes features on submarines, which at the time were very primitive vessels. Thus, the book has been able to age well because of its scientific theories, unlike some other of Verne's works, like Journey to the Center of the Earth, which are not scientifically accurate and serve more simply as adventure novels.

Fidget and her brother Echo are two young peregrine falcons embarking upon their first adventures of freedom. Both falcons were ha...tched in an incubator by humans and then placed in a box nestled on a cliff. <i>Fidget s Freedom</i>, the first in this two-book story, describes their lives up to Fidget s first flight. <i>Fidget s Folly</i> takes up the story as the two youngsters learn to hunt and fend for themselves. New adventures await them as they grow into wild, independent masters of the sky.<br><br><br>This fictional but biologically accurate story is based on the experiences and observations of scientists who successfully reintroduced peregrine falcons into the wild in North America. The peregrine s population had dwindled by the 1960s because of the use of the pesticide DDT, which causes egg shells to be thin and then break during incubation. Two subspecies of peregrine falcons were placed on the federal list of endangered species in 1970, and DDT was banned in 1972. Because of extensive reintroduction efforts with chicks like Fidget and her brother, peregrine falcons were delisted in the 1990s.<br><br><br><i>Fidget s Folly</i> is published in cooperation with the Raptor Education Foundation, whose mission is to advance environmental literacy through educational programs, books, and research services.

The fearless boy reporter explores for sunken pirate treasure with his friend Captain Haddock.<br><br>The Adventures of Tintin (Le...s Aventures de Tintin) is a series of comic strips created by Belgian artist Herge the pen name of Georges Remi (1907 1983). The series first appeared in French in Le Petit Vingtieme, a children's supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtieme Siecle on 10 January 1929. Set in a painstakingly researched world closely mirroring our own, Herge's Tintin series continues to be a favorite of readers and critics alike 80 years later.<br>The hero of the series is Tintin, a young Belgian reporter. He is aided in his adventures from the beginning by his faithful fox terrier dog Snowy (Milou in French). Later, popular additions to the cast included the brash, cynical and grumpy Captain Haddock, the bright but hearing-impaired Professor Calculus (Professeur Tournesol) and other colorful supporting characters such as the incompetent detectives Thomson and Thompson (Dupond et Dupont). Herge himself features in several of the comics as a background character; as do his assistants in some instances.<br>The success of the series saw the serialized strips collected into a series of albums (24 in all), spun into a successful magazine and adapted for film and theatre. The series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century, with translations published in over 50 languages and more than 200 million copies of the books sold to date. <br>The comic strip series has long been admired for its clean, expressive drawings in Herge's signature ligne claire style. Engaging, well-researched plots straddle a variety of genres: swashbuckling adventures with elements of fantasy, mysteries, political thrillers, and science fiction. The stories within the Tintin series always feature slapstick humor, accompanied in later albums by sophisticated satire, and political and cultural commentary. Read More
