The Lost World : Being an Account of the Recent Amazing Adventures of Professor E. Challenge (Puffin Classics)
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Overview -
'Suddenly out of the darkness, out of the night, there swooped something with a swish like an aeroplane. The whole group of us were covered for an instant by a canopy of leathery wings, and I had a momentary vision of a long, snake-like neck, a fierce, red, greedy eye, and a great snapping beak, filled, to my amazement, with little, gleaming teeth.' Desperate for adventure, journalist Ed Malone joins a scientific expedition to the South American jungle led by the larger than life figure of Professor Challenger. But you should be careful what you wish for. After climbing to the summit of a mysterious plateau in the Amazon rainforest the explorers find themselves trapped in a world lost in time, inhabited by carnivorous dinosaurs, giant fish-lizards and murderous ape-men. Arthur Conan Doyle's thrilling tale of adventure and crypto-zoology became a template for an industry of creature features that came in its wake. Today, Hollywood depends on the massive success of its superhero. Science fiction, and action and adventure franchises. But before JURASSIC PARK there was THE LOST WORLD. In this stunning new edition, illustrated by legendary comic book artist, Bryan Hitch, the original book's widescreen, cinematic vision is celebrated.
