Who wrote "Children of Captain Grant"?

Today's students are so overwhelmed with information that they rarely go beyond the school curriculum, choosing books to read. Of the 10 teenagers, there are hardly two who know who wrote the Children of Captain Grant. The author of this work leans French writer Jules Verne.

His famous book, Children of Captain Grant, was published in 1868, and before that, for two whole years, from December 1865 to December 1867, its heads were published every month in the Journal for Education and Recreation. You can imagine how impatiently the readers were waiting for the next issue to come out, because it’s simply impossible to break away from the exciting adventures of the heroes of this book.

The novel begins when sailors find three notes in different languages ​​in the belly of a shark caught. They ask for help the captain and the sailors of the wrecked ship "Britain". But the trouble is that the text was so poorly preserved that it was possible to reliably find out only the breadth of that uninhabited island on which the unfortunate were saved.An expedition is sent in search of the children of the missing captain Grant. This circumnavigation of 37 parallels is full of unexpected events and dangerous moments. But it all ends very well.

Jules Verne amazingly describes in detail all the places where his characters are. It's amazing how he managed to collect this numerous information - after all, in those days there was no television or the Internet. Probably the secret is that he himself was an avid traveler, and also had an amazing performance. During his life he wrote 20 short stories, 30 plays and 66 novels, many of which are published until now.
