this is a great book
Fabulous author!
Always love the Grumpies books
Laughed so much reading this book.
What a fun book this is. I enjoyed the way it is set up in an A to Z format rather than by country. It is a lot more fun learning about what you can do in a country and has given me some good ideas for a trip for my fiftieth birthday.
I love this author and this book, they're both AWESOME!
Loved this book. It deserves to win.
Gave my wife and I many laughs and we are going to try out some of the suggestions in the book.
Best travel guide I have ever read!
Entertaining, informative and very amusing.
I laughed such a lot at this book especially the comments at the end of each section. A very funny book. We are going to book Flamenco dancing in Cuba now thanks to reading this. I recommend Grumpies On Board to anyone who wants to keep on enjoying life.
A genuinely funny read that will change how you holiday in future.
Great read and very entertaining. It will change the way you travel and give you laugh after laugh.
Superbly researched and hugely entertaining. Much more than a book about travel. Loved the Mister Grumpy comments in it. He's just like my husband. Hope this book wins as it deserves to.
You will not need to browse through holiday brochures for your next trip after reading this book in fact, you're far more likely to go off adventuring. A book filled with useful facts and very funny in parts. Mr Grumpy's comments about each trip idea are hilarious. I want to go on some of these trips now.
