Rock the Boat is a modern interpretation of the best selling Victorian classic 'Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. We follow a fame hungry teenage rock band along The River Thames on their way to play the gig of their lives at the famous music event 'Reading Festival'. The problem is, they're not booked to perform and no one knows who they are! They consider this a minor detail and continue with their plans to viral and become the new international rock sensation! Their access into the festival site hinges on a crucial birthday present to the band's front man, Jerome. But his excitement soon turns to despair when a misunderstanding sees him receive the wrong tickets and a boat trip instead! This could ruin their big break, so Jerome is forced to make the best of a bad situation and prepares to set sail to stardom. He convinces his band mates to take to the water in the dilapidated boat, but a catalogue of errors and encounters with unwelcome guests cause plenty of waves along the way. This cruise is far from plain sailing - will they make it to the festival on time, and will they go viral for all the wrong reasons? Main characters: Jerome is the neurotic, Google-obsessed lead singer and guitarist. Harris is the loud-mouthed tomboy and general troublemaker on bass. Georgie, the geeky, practical, self-appointed PR guru and general trouble-shooter on keyboards, and Dog, the drummer is the chilled-out, mild mannered, gentle giant with a hulking presence. This book's humour, entertainment value and eye-catching illustrations brings a Victorian classic bang up to date for a new audience, while also retaining the same sense of irreverence and adventure that infuses the original work.
