Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson
The young Jim Hawkins is hired by an old seadog, Billy Bones, to look out for a sailor with one leg. Despite this precaution, Bones is found dead in suspicious circumstances.

They engage a ship and captain, but unwittingly they hire the ruthless and immensely strong Long John Silver, who has designs on the treasure, as their cook...


Around the World in Eighty Days, by Jules Verne

Fetching his newly appointed French valet, Fogg embarks on a fabulous journey across land and sea—by steamer, rail, and elephant—to win the bet of a lifetime.
