I first read these two books over thirty years ago. The first was written in 1889, the second in 1900. Together they are still perhaps the funniest books I have ever read, and, when I last compiled a list, it came in at #8 of my top ten books.

Three friends (and a small dog) take a boat trip up the Thames.

And then they take a cycling trip round Germany

They are gentle stories; the first is a book everyone has heard of. The second isnít so well know, but is the better of the two

Such a shame so few people have read either
