Picking up where Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days" left off, Phileas Fogg's teenage son, Harry, is in trouble. He has made a bet that he can drive a steam-powered motor-car around the world in 100 days. So along with a brilliant but shy mechanic, a sly female journalist, and the son of his opponent in the wager, Harry sets off on a race against time. The trip isn't easy, especially with dissension within the group. The question is, will they be able to finish . . .because the stakes are inconceivably high.
"A thrilling, thoroughly road-worthy joy ride." - "Kirkus Reviews," starred review
