Synopsis

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.



ILLUSTRATED WITH THIRTY ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS BY COMEDIAN AND ARTIST VIC REEVES - EXCLUSIVE TO VINTAGE CLASSICS

Jerome's narrative meanders through such wildly varied topics as hypochondria, tents, girls' uselessness in a boat, playing the bagpipes and making an Irish stew as his trio grumble, drink, smoke and snooze on the river.
