Around the World in 80 Days
Taking place in the Victorian era, this novel tells of the adventures of the quiet Phineas Fogg. Phineas, an Englishman, has bet half his fortune on the wager that he can circle the globe in just eighty days - a ridiculous notion in those days. It's no easy task for Phineas and his manservant - they must use a full array of transportation methods to get through their many comical adventures and around the globe. Not helping matters is a devious detective determined to slow them down. ~ Melissa
