About the Book: The Story of Captain Nemo relates the exciting and dangerous expedition Consuelo and his uncle Pierre Arronax go on in search of the mysterious object that is destroying ships all around the world. Discovering the Nautilus, Consuelo meets its captain - Nemo – who reveals his brilliant but mad scheme to destroy the ships which are harvesting the ocean’s natural world with careless abandon. Nemo traps Consuelo and his friends on board but on escaping they discover that Nemo has been driven mad and the ship is heading into a terrifying maelstrom. Consuelo and the others survive but of Nemo and his ship, nothing is known. The mystery of what happened to him continues to this day…

Reasons for Selection: The Story of Captain Nemo is a reimagining of Jules Verne’s classic story 20,000 Leagues under the sea brought up-to-date and set against a backdrop of contemporary environmental concerns.
