A 3+. This was a big step-up in vocabulary for my 10 year old. The 14 year old got a lot more out of the story. It was an interesting premise: traveling around the world within 80 days on a wager. The story is driven by the time constraints and getting from here to there. I would have enjoyed more detail both for the characters ( Phileas Fogg, Passapartout, Aouda, and Detective Fix) well as for the locations. I look forward to watching the movie.
