Product Description:

Jules Verne was trained as a lawyer, but wanted to write stories and novels instead. One of his first stories to gain immediate popularity was Five Weeks in a Balloon, written when air travel was unknown and ballooning was still in its early days. In this story an Englishman, Phileas Fogg, bets that he can travel completely around the world in only eighty days. In this humorous and fun story he encounters exotic places and cultures and situations that can ground him. Can he actually make it around the world? And can it be done in this eighty days?
