A Fast-Paced and Exhilarating Historical Adventure!
This incredible and daring road trip, following in the tradition of the classic 80-day balloon race, will have readers racing to turn the pages!
It’s 1891, and Harry Fogg, the son of Phileas Fogg from Jules Verne’s classic adventure Around the World in 80 Days, has just made a globe-circling bet of his own. He and his friends are going to travel around the entire world in an automobile in just 100 days. And if Harry doesn’t win the race, he’s promised his father he’ll give up his automobile dreams and find a more respectable career. Harry is sure that the Flash, his custom-built, steam-powered motorcar, is up to the task. But he and his crew never counted on kidnappers, wildfires, and even sabotage from someone on their own team! Will they survive the dangerous journey...and make it to the finish line in time?
