Synopsis

Around the World in Eighty Days (Oxford Children's Classics) by Jules Verne

To go around the world in eighty days, some might say, is impossible. But that's exactly what Phileas Fogg sets out to do. With a wager of £20,000 riding on his success, Phileas travels by train, steamship and even elephant - but will he make it back to London in time to collect his winnings?

About the Author

Jules Verne
Jules Gabriel Verne (February 8, 1828–March 24, 1905) was a French author and a pioneer of the science-fiction genre. Verne was noted for writing about cosmic, atmospheric, and underwater travel before air travel and submarines were commonplace and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated novelist in the world, according to the Index Translational statistics. Some of his books have also been made into films.
