Take a thrilling whirlwind trip around the world with Phileas Fogg!

Jules Verne’s classic tale bubbles with excitement, suspense, and colorful locations.
Praise for Classic Starts™:
“The books have won the praise of a number of educators. Peggy Charren, a visiting scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an advocate for higher-quality children’s media, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, said she has read several {and states}’they’re terrific.’”—The Wall Street Journal.
“Where abridgements are useful in introducing literature to grade-schoolers not equipped to handle the real thing, books in this series will fill the bill.”—Booklist.
“Large print, short chapters, and an abundance of white space provide an attractive, more-accessible option for readers who are not ready to handle the originals.”—School Library Journal
“Even those who dislike adaptations will find much to admire in this retelling…”—School Library Journal (for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer)
“This…retelling will be appreciated by readers not yet ready for the original work.”—School Library Journal (for Anne of Green Gables).
