[Redactor’s Note: Dick Sands the Boy Captain (Number V018 in the T&M numerical listing of Verne’s works is a translation of Un capitaine de quinze ans (1878) by Ellen E. Frewer who also translated other Verne works. The current translation was published by Sampson & Low in England (1878) and Scribners in New York (1879) and was republished many times and included in Volume 8 of the Parke edition of The Works of Jules Verne (1911). There is another translation published by George Munro (1878) in New York with the title Dick Sand A Captain at Fifteen.

This work has an almost mechanical repetiveness in the continuing description of the day after day trials of sailing at sea. Thus the illustrations, of which there were 94 in the french edition, are all the more important in keeping up the reader’s interest. The titles of the illustrations are given here as a prelude to a future fully illustrated edition.] D I C K S A N D S

Subject: Review Dick Sands Boy Captain
Excellent book. I didn't want it to end. The narrator spoke wayyyyyyy too fast. If he would have slowed down then he would have received 5 stars.
