Evocative of an era when all travel was an adventure, this timeless classic is perfectly captured by Robert Ingpen's rich and detailed illustrations
 
Although we live in an age when round-the-world travel is possible in hours rather than weeks, Jules Verne's tale of a race against the clock has never lost its power to thrill. Set in 1872, Mr. Phileas Fogg, a gentleman of precision and predictability, and his manservant, the ever resourceful Passepartout, ride through India on an elephant, sail the South China Sea in the teeth of a typhoon, and cross the snow-covered plains of the American Wild West in order to fulfill a wager that the journey can be completed in just 80 days. The acrobatic and inquisitive Passepartout can seldom keep out of trouble. While he is pursued by irate Indian priests, drugged in an opium den, and saving a runaway train, his master's composure is never broken as the hours tick away on his precisely accurate pocket watch. But Phileas Fogg is above all a gentleman, and stopping to save the life of a beautiful young widow may have cost him his fortune. The ill-assorted but determined trio have to use all of their ingenuity and some remarkable vehicles to race back to London. Will they make it in time?
