HarperCollins Children’s Classics - Around the World in Eighty Days (HarperCollins Children’s Classics)

By Jules Verne

This beautiful HarperCollins Children’s Classics edition is perfect for every bookshelf.

Despite his better judgement, eccentric English gentleman Phileas Fogg has wagered half his fortune on a whim – and a foolish one at that. He must travel around the world in eighty days or lose it all.

Fogg is determined not to lose, no matter the typhoons, bison or Scotland Yard detectives that get in his way. By steamer, train, sledge and boat, on foot and on elephant back, Fogg and his beleaguered valet journey the globe, crossing land and sea in the greatest of races.

The most celebrated of Jules Verne’s Voyages extraordinaires series, this riotous adventure story has inspired countless films, plays and trips around the world.
