A timeless classic comes alive with Francesca Rossi's gorgeous illustrations, now in a smaller format.

Some novels are considered classics of children literature, read by numerous generations of young readers who made them immortal.

The thrilling race against time of eccentric Phileas Fogg and his manservant Passepartout, having to run around the planet to win a bet, is here presented in a modern and original way, thanks to the splendid drawings by Francesca Rossi, an artist able to capture the vivid atmosphere of the story.
