The dragon and the mouse - around the world in 80 flights

€7,45 €14,90

After a thousand vicissitudes, Gideone and Paco, the winners of the legendary Cup of the Valleys, managed to sign up for an even more prestigious competition, the Around the World in 80 Flights, an interminable speed race in 80 stages: whoever covers them all in shortest possible time wins. Finally they can compete against world-class opponents, chasing a victory that could establish them as two of the greatest champions of all time.

When there are 54 stages to go and many of the participants have already dropped out, our heroes are still in the running. At the Golden Carpa inn, where everyone has found refuge from the snowstorm raging around Monte Cremino, the fearless mouse meets two famous racing aces who will have great importance in the subsequent unfolding of events. When the race crosses the valley where Gideon was born and there are 36 stages to go until the finish line, the first victory finally arrives! But the surprises are not over: the sportsmanship that our heroes demonstrate, in fact, will end up benefiting them and decreeing their final triumph, with the conquest of the large cheese statue, the prize for the first arrivals, and a great friendship on the horizon for the peaceful Paco!

After the first two successful titles, here is the new fantastic adventure of the mouse Gideon and the dragon Paco to conquer the world!
