Storyteller Jim Weiss knows how to tempt young listeners into trying out classics they might otherwise ignore. Here, Weiss enthusiastically takes on the challenge of breathing life into Verne's under-the-sea adventure story, which he begins with an engaging introduction to the author. Weiss retells the story, bringing its famous sea scenes to life while expressing their original flavor. Listeners will meet mysterious Captain Nemo and his companions, glimpse the wonders of the Nautilus, and witness the story's most dramatic scenes, including the attack of the giant squid. This storyteller's version will prompt many young listeners to seek out the book for more adventure. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
