Avid Angler, age 10 writes: This is the story about an inventor who travels the world in 80 days. He travels by boat, balloon and by a flying machine. The main character is Phileas Fogg. Mr. Fogg is from England. The adventures are both fun and dangerous. Mom says: "Classic Starts" series is one of the best ways to introduce young kids to the classics. It's easy to read and the plot is faithful to the original. This series makes a great gift to young readers.
