'Today is Wednesday 2nd October. If I am back in this very room in the Reform Club on Saturday 21st December by eight forty-five in the evening, I win. Phileas Fogg bets £20,000 that he can go round the world in eighty days – a huge sum of money in 1872, worth more than a million pounds today! When he sets off on his amazing journey with his clever servant, Passepartout, they cannot afford the slightest delay. Will the two travellers have time to help Princess Aouda, when the brave and beautiful young woman is threatened with a cruel fate? Detective Fix believes that Mr Fogg is a bank robber, and plans to arrest him. Will that be the end of Phileas Fogg's chance to save his fortune? Baker Street Readers are retellings of literary classics in 64 pages, with illustrations. These books make classic stories available to intelligent young readers as a bridge to the full texts and to language students wanting access to other cultures.
