Around the World in Eighty Days
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
To fulfil a wager made at the Reform Club in London, Phileas Fogg and his long-suffering manservant, Passepartout, embark on the race of a lifetime - to circumnavigate the globe in exactly 80 days. Travelling by steamboat, train and elephant (no aeroplanes in 1872), with adventures at every turn and Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard in hot pursuit - will they make it back in time? Jules Verne's wonderful story is presented here in a handsome edition, with over 70 illustrations by Robert Ingpen. Age 9+
