Children Of Captain Grant, The

It is the year 1850. Captain Grant, a senior British officer, has disappeared. As their mother has died, his two children Robert and Mary have to work for a cruel farmer who mistreats them. Lord Jon Glenarvan catches a shark and finds a bottle in its belly with a message saying that Captain Grant was taken prisoner of war by the Russians. Lord Jon and the Captain's children set out to find him. After many adventures they experience during their journey, they finally find the Captain and arrive just in time to save him from the hangman's noose.
