Publisher's Summary

Jules Verne's two novels featuring Captain Nemo (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island), condensed down to two thrilling hours. 

In 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, marine scientist Professor Aronnax and his stowaway daughter, Connie, join whaler Ned Land aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln to hunt an aggressive sea monster, believed to be a giant narwhale. When they engage the monster, they find to their astonishment it's an electrically powered submarine, the Nautilus, technologically far superior to any vessel known. They are rescued by the ship's enigmatic captain, Nemo.... 

In The Mysterious Island, military engineer Cyrus Smith, his freed slave, Neb, and reporter Grace Spilett flee the besieged city of Richmond in a balloon. Their vessel is caught in a vast storm and blown thousands of miles until it crashes on a remote Pacific island. But they soon realise that they are not alone on the island....
