Around the World

author/illustrator: Matt Phelan

A Scott O’Dell Award–winning graphic novelist follows three dauntless adventurers on a Jules Verne–inspired challenge: circling the world, solo. With cinematic pacing and deft, expressive art, acclaimed storyteller and artist Matt Phelan weaves a trio of epic journeys into a single bold tale of visionaries setting their sights on nothing short of the world.

“This book — riveting, wondrously drawn, expertly paced — is a triumph. — The New York Times
