‘I fell out of bed laughing at Three Men in a Boat’ Guardian

What could be more relaxing than a refreshing holiday on the river with your two best friends and faithful canine companion, Montmorency? However, as J. discovers, there is more to life on the waves than meets the eye – including navigational challenges, culinary disasters, and heroic battles with swans, kettles and tins of pineapple. Jerome K. Jerome’s delightful novel has kept readers smiling for years and his prose has found a perfect partner in Vic Reeves’s glorious and witty illustrations.

Publisher Review

As well as being very funny, it captures the innocence of a time before adventure became synonymous with bungee jumping into ravines in faraway places * Observer * Brought laughter to a country in the throes of Victorian gloom * The Times * One of the funniest books I've ever read. I laughed out loud and that doesn't happen often -- Vic Reeves * Daily Express * A charming comedy of friendship and human nature * Independent * Wonderfully fresh and funny, and among examples of Victorian humour I would place it high in the pantheon, right up there with The Importance of Being Earnest and The Diary of a Nobody...Jerome's writing...triumphantly stands the test of time, with its comic flights of exaggeration, its occasional archness, and its entirely innocent hint of the camp * Daily Telegraph *
