Globe-Trotting Adventures

July 13th, 2010 by

From Africa to Egypt to France to Tibet… Who needs a passport when you can pick up a book?

Sure, maybe you wish you could actually travel to foreign countries, but given some of the dangerous situations in these globe-trotting adventures, we’re perfectly happy to just read about them. Seriously, the folks in these books are chased through the jungle, pursued by secret agents, and even tricked by gods. No, thank you.

But hey, their stories make for excellent reading! So, here are some globe-trotting adventure books (in no particular order):

  1. The Voyages Of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting (Karen’s pick)
  2. Kane Chronicles Book #1: The Red Pyramid (Nancy’s pick)
  3. The 39 Clues series by various authors
  4. Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R.L. Lafevers
  5. Treasure Island: The Graphic Novel adapted by Tim Hamilton from the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson
  6. Around the World in a Hundred Years by Jean Fritz
  7. The Wanderer by Sharon Creech
  8. Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz
  9. Everest series by Gordan Korman
  10. Peak by Roland Smith
  11. Middleworld series by Jon and Pamela Voelkel
  12. The Twenty-One Balloons by William Pene du Bois
  13. Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne

If you’ve read any of these, send in your book review. Or send in a review of your favorite globe-trotting adventure.

UPDATE 7/27/10: We revealed the answer to our Globe-Trotting Adventures Mystery Book Theater in the “Adventure Is Out There!” Podcast, so take a listen if you want to know the answer. Or just tune in if you want to hear Nancy and Karen fight over the best form of transportation. Yes, we take our transport very seriously…
