Jules Verne "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea"



Jules Verne

It was the year 1867. Some sailors said that they saw a dangerous, giant monster living in the cold waters of the ocean. Some ships tried to find it and kill it, but they never returned. People said it looked like a whale. "It was 300 feet long and a mile wide!" "Water came out of its back. It was like a big underwater explosion!"
