      Look forward to Around the World in Eighty Days – http://www.abebooks.com/Around-World-Eighty-Days-Illustrated-Edition/630765169/bd

      Listened to it Zoe. The narrative once again is adapted, and is fun for my 12-year old and me. But the 7-year old found it a tad trickier to follow without my help. Maybe I’ll record it and save it for future.

      But thanks for these links. Keep ‘em coming please. And in case you didn’t know, you are a star!
