War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells

When four Martian space ships land in England, masses of people flee the cities, driven by an overwhelming fear of the alien creatures devastating weapons of death and destruction. Excellently adapted by Bob Blaisdell for youngsters, this easy-to-read version of the 19th-century science-fiction classic is enhanced with 6 original illustrations by John Green. Abridged.
