Product Description
I absolutely love Jules Verne's classic adventure novel Around the World in Eighty Days.

ADAPTATION

One challenge with teaching Verne's classic is the language of the 1870s. I have written an adaptation unlike anything else available.

It is not an abridged version with just 10 or 20 chapters. It is an adapted version with the full 37 chapters and the true spirit of the original.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
READABILITY

Originally published in 1873, Jules Verne’s classic Around the World in Eighty Days has been enjoyed by millions. Its adventurous spirit, acts of heroism, and clear morality make it an ideal and engaging tale for adolescents. The prose, however, is now a challenging study for even talented young readers.

This adaptation reintroduces the masterpiece to a new generation of young readers. The original novel’s average readability score—analyzed by chapter—rates at an 8.7 grade level. This adaptation lowers the level to 7.0. Word choice has also been updated. Less common words have been replaced with words more familiar to a modern audience.

Yet with all the changes, this adaptation stays true to the journey, pacing, and poetry of the original. Readers will have a full sense of the great adventure of Mr. Phileas Fogg.
