Summary

A wealthy man and his valet race against time to circumnavigate the world in eighty days in one of Jules Verne’s best known tales—now with an arresting new look!

Phileas Fogg has always been a quiet, orderly, and predictable English gentleman who reads the newspaper, visits the Reform Club, and dines at exactly the same time each day. But this routine is abandoned when he wagers his fortune in an outlandish bet that he can travel around the entire world in eighty days.

Fogg sets off immediately to prove his point, accompanied by his new valet, Passepartout, whose job is turning out to be quite different from the tranquil position he expected. As the pair travels by boat, train, carriage, and elephant from one country to the next, Fogg’s meticulous planning maps out their route. But not even he can anticipate every delay and danger along the way. And unbeknownst to him, the trip is being shadowed by Detective Fix, who is convinced Fogg is a bank robber running from justice. With the clock counting down, the only thing that’s certain is that this trip will end in either glory or ruin.
