By Jules Verne

Chapter 23

In which Passepartout's nose becomes outrageously long

  • Starving and having no shelter, Passepartout joins a troupe of actors, clowns, and acrobats.
  • The troupe is hired to construct a human pyramid at one of the great performance halls. Passepartout is one of the bases, but by chance sees his master passing by and runs out from under the pyramid toward him. The whole structure of acrobats comes tumbling down.
  • The owner of the acting troupe is furious, but Phileas throws some banknotes at him and he is silenced. The group, once again united, boards a boat bound for America.
