Book Launch - Jules Verne’s Mikhail Strogoff

Come and meet the team from Christmas Tree Press
Sophie Masson, David Allan (Illustrator) & Fiona McDonald

Russia, late 19th century. The Empire is in great peril, and only one man can save it: the bold and resourceful young messenger Mikhail Strogoff. In a desperate race against time, he must face great dangers if he is to deliver his warning, as foreign armies mass on the border and a traitor lurks ready to strike. But is it already too late?

The first full English translation in over a hundred years of legendary author Jules Verne's thrilling adventure novel, which in his native France is judged to be his greatest work.
A wonderful classic novel to discover, suitable for both adults and younger readers from 12 up.

Superb hand numbered illustrated hardcover limited edition of 750 copies, with many embellishments
