It is an never ending adventure
It is in my top 10. I was surprised on how well the story was structured. There is plenty of funny parts and at the same time there is a deep meaning in every single part. It is like a working machine with all parts functioning well and with a special purpose.
Any Jules Verne Book because of its adventure style. Besides the other book that I read about balloons was written by Verne (Travel around the world in 80 days)
Good for kids, plenty of fantasy and at the same time brilliant description of how machines work within the book.
