‘Today you can go round the world in eighty days,’ says Phileas Fogg. ‘Do it, and I pay you £20,000,’ says his friend Stuart.
This is the beginning of one of Jules Verne’s most exciting stories. Phileas Fogg must get back to London by December 21st or lose all his money. With the help of his servant, Passepartout, Fogg travels in many ways – from train to elephant – and he has some surprising adventures on the way.
