Funny: In Search of the Castaways

The book:

  • At the beginning of Chapter 9, after Paganel announces his intention to join the search for Captain Grant, he also announces his intention to teach Robert geography.
    Robert bade fair to be an accomplished gentleman some day, for John Mangles was to make a sailor of him, and the Major was to teach him sang-froid, and Glenarvan and Lady Helena were to instil into him courage and goodness and generosity, while Mary was to inspire him with gratitude toward such instructors.
  • When Captain Mangles starts to develop feelings for Mary, there's this line:
    He was smitten with quite a peculiar interest for this young girl, and managed to conceal his sentiments so well that everyone on board saw it except himself and Mary Grant.
