The Adventures of Uncle Lubin

A novel by

While Uncle Lubin naps, his beloved nephew Peter is carried off by a loathsome bag-bird. This playful and richly imaginative tale recounts Uncle Lubin's hot pursuit, as he searches everywhere from the moon to the bottom of the ocean. The clever hero invents an air-ship as well as a submersible sea-boat, the better to triumph over a sea-serpent, an iceberg, and other fanciful obstacles.
Every page of the enchanting 1902 adventure features W. Heath Robinson's remarkable pen-and-ink drawings. A leading figure from the Golden Age of book illustration, Robinson depicts the story's comic absurdities with an imaginative zest that delights readers of all ages.
