    1. Look forward to Around the World in Eighty Days – http://www.abebooks.com/Around-World-Eighty-Days-Illustrated-Edition/630765169/bd
      Do try and get this edition, it is stunning. Got it in a used books shop here.

    2. 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!

    3. Thanks for the feedback Choxbox, we havent’ managed to listen to it yet. And for the book tip :-) We help each other find great stuff :-D
