In the PUFFIN CLASSICS, this is the famous story of three men and a dog setting off in an open boat on a hilarious voyage up the Thames. This excursion was undertaken at the end of the last century, and the comments on the world at that time have a deep fascination for young readers, as the tale, full of mishaps, unfolds.

JEROME K JEROME (1859-1927) became an actor and his first books, ON STAGE AND OFF and THE IDLE THOUGHTS OF AN IDLE FELLOW, were about the theatre. Turning to writing as a profession, Jerome published his most famous novel, THREE MEN IN A BOAT in 1889, with a sequel, THREE MEN ON THE BUMMEL in 1900. He died in 1927.Review:
"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
