The Twenty-One Balloons

Our rating: *****

When Professor William Waterman Sherman begins his long-planned balloon voyage, he hopes to take a long trip (about a year) on which he might easily end up being the first to fly across the Pacific Ocean, but when his planning goes awry, he ends up on the supposedly uninhabited island of Krakatoa. Far from it! The society and lifestyle established on the island is extremely unique, packed with amazing inventions, and containing a giant diamond mine.

This is a book I enjoy reading again and again. A highly imaginative story, based off of scientific facts and absolute nonsense. I definitely recommend this one.
