The Lovereading4Kids comment
A novel that hilariously captures the spirit of its age.
What Ali Sparkes, author of Dark Summer and also the Shapeshifter series says of the title and its author:
JEROME K JEROME - Now although this isn’t a children’s book, Three Men In A Boat is something that every bookworm MUST read by the time they turn 14. The story of the author, his two friends and Montmorency the dog, on a boating holiday is strewn with mad incidents involving cheese, scary unopenable tins and a dead dog floating by in the water. I laughed so much I nearly ruptured myself.

Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome
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.
'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
'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
