Read full description of the books:
This is a lighter and more humorous piece than is Verne's wont, featuring a somnolent Flemish town which is stirred up by the mysterious Dr. Ox's secret gas, which has an effect somewhat like the mind-altering signal in The Iron Duke.
My edition was illustrated charmingly by Pene du Bois and is printed, inexplicably, sideways to the binding so that one holds it as if admiring a centerfold and flips the pages down towards one. So:
There are tongue-in-cheek chapter titles such as In Which Matters Go So Far That the Inhabitants of Quiquendone, the Reader, and Even the Author, Demand an Immediate Denouement.
Fun, but disappointingly, the Dr.'s identity and motivations are never revealed, which makes the project a bit slight.

Read information about the authorJules Gabriel Verne was a French author who pioneered the genre of science-fiction. He is best known for his novels Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873).
Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated author of all time, behind Disney Productions and Agatha Christie. His prominent novels have been made into films. Verne, along with H. G. Wells, is often referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction".
