The Lovereading4Kids comment
Jules Verne's pacey and popular classic (complete and unabridged) is the latest addition to the Templar Classics series. Complemented by more than seventy wonderful illustrations by award-winning artist, Robert Ingpen, and lavishly produced with foil on the jacket it is a wonderful addition to any library.
Around the World in 80 Days (Illustrated by Robert Ingpen) by Jules Verne
Set off with Phileas Fogg and his manservant on a race to circumnavigate the globe in just eighty days! Travelling by steamboat, train, and even elephant, the intrepid duo find themselves rescuing a young Indian woman from sacrifice, escaping kidnap, and battling hurricane winds - and all the while, tenacious Detective Fix of Scotland Yard is in hot pursuit, believing Fogg to be the criminal mastermind behind a Bank of England robbery. Rich in humour and excitement, Around the World in Eighty Days deservedly remains one of Jules Verne's most popular books.
'A classy new edition of a story with enduring appeal. Made me want to go round the world again.' - Michael Palin
