Phileas Fogg bets £20,000 that he can go round the world in eighty days – a huge sum of money in 1872, worth more than a million pounds today.

When he sets off on his amazing journey with his clever servant, Passepartout, they cannot afford the slightest delay. 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. Will the two travellers have time to help Princess Aouda, when the brave and beautiful young woman is threatened with a cruel fate?

Detective Fix believes that Mr Fogg is a bank robber, and plans to arrest him. Will that be the end of Phileas Fogg’s chance to save his fortune?

This version of Jules Verne adventure story is retold by Tony Evans in an accessible illustrated format.
