The famous story of three men and a dog setting off in an open boat on a hilarious voyage up the Thames. The story is full of mishaps - falling into the river and getting lost in Hampton Court Maze - but also offers comments on the world. This excursion was undertaken at the end of the last century and comments on the times have acquired a deeper fascination.

" 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)
"A charming comedy of friendship and human nature" ( Independent)
"One of the funniest books I've ever read. I laughed out loud and that doesn't happen often" (Vic Reeves Daily Express)
"Brought laughter to a country in the throes of Victorian gloom" ( The Times)
"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)
'Wonderfully fresh and funny...Jerome's writing triumphantly stands the test of time' Daily Telegraph
ILLUSTRATED WITH THIRTY ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS BY COMEDIAN AND ARTIST VIC REEVES
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.
