Adventures of the Rat Family (Opie Library)

Adventures of the Rat Family (Aventures de la famille raton) - Jules Verne Why: I've loved Jules Verne, who was a formative power of my childhood. I love steampunk because it picks up on Jules Verne aspects. So I don't know whether I will like a book that has none of that steampunk flavor. But we'll see. And it might be a good book for my 6-year-old.
