If you like Jules Verne, this will be among your favorites. If you don't, try it anyway. It's hilarious. It's exciting. It wraps you up in the adventure and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Definitely worth the read.

I read Around the World in 80 Days at the same time. I saw this title in my library catalog and was curious, but I was disappointed that neither Goodreads or Amazon could give me an idea of what it was about. That's why I'm writing this review. Here's what the dust jacket says: "'It records simply how the world looked to me in 80 days,' says John Burningham of this, his most adventurous and delightful book yet.

On October 3, 1970, he set out from London's Reform Club in the footsteps of Jules Verne's Victorian hero Phileas Fogg. When he returned on a sunny December afternoon, just 80 days later, he had traveled 44,000 miles and visited 24 countries."

John Burningham does travel on the same dates as Phileas Fogg. (If it was a couple years later, it could have been exactly 100 years after Mr. Fogg.) He does, however deviate his route a little from that of Mr. Fogg's. Extra places he goes that Mr. Fogg does not are Ethiopia, Kenya, Nepal, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and Canada. The main difference between Burningham and Fogg is that Burningham actually wanted to see the places he was traveling through! :)

I enjoyed his drawings. My favorite was the series of pictures about young bull elephants pushing over trees -- when they get hot, there's a crowd of elephants under the trees remaining. It made me laugh. ...more
