9780141035871: Around the World in Eighty Days (Penguin Classics)

One night in the reform club, Phileas Fogg bets his companions that he can travel across the globe in just eighty days. Breaking the well-established routine of his daily life, he immediately sets off for Dover with his astonished valet Passepartout. Passing through exotic lands and dangerous locations, they seize whatever transportation is at hand - whether train or elephant - overcoming set-backs and always racing against the clock.

Review:

"Praise for "Classic Starts(TM)" "" ""The books have won the praise of a number of educators. Peggy Charren, a visiting scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an advocate for higher-quality children's media, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, said she has read several {and states}'they're terrific.'"--"The Wall Street Journal." "Where abridgements are useful in introducing literature to grade-schoolers not equipped to handle the real thing, books in this series will fill the bill."--"Booklist. "" ""Large print, short chapters, and an abundance of white space provide an attractive, more-accessible option for readers who are not ready to handle the originals."--"School Library Journal" "Even those who dislike adaptations will find much to admire in this retelling..."--"School""Library Journal" (for "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer)"" ""This...retelling will be appreciated by readers not yet ready for the original work."--"School Library Journal" (for "Anne of Green Gables").

From the Back Cover:

First serialized in a French newspaper in 1872, this is perhaps the most beloved and the most enduring of Jules Verne's novels of imaginative escapades. When Englishman Phileas Fogg takes on a bet of £20,000 from his gentlemen's club that he cannot circumnavigate the globe in 80 days or less--an unheard-of feat in the Victorian world--he sets off, with his manservant Passepartout at his side, on an series of exotic exploits and comic misadventures (Fogg is mistaken for a thief on the run by a pursuing Scotland Yard detective). An inspiration to generations of writers and readers, Verne's fiction remains compelling and thoroughly enjoyable today. French author JULES GABRIEL VERNE (1828-1905) is considered the father of modern science fiction. Among his many groundbreaking books are Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1870)
