Product Description

**INCLUDES THE NOVELLA: THE FAMILY CHRISTMAS SURVIVAL GUIDE**

A comedy for every parent who has survived the school summer holidays

Two parents. Three children. One senile grandad. Six weeks. How bad could it possibly be?

For teacher, Ben Robinson, the school summer holidays mean one thing - spending six weeks with his kids. This year, however, he also has his father and one very angry wife to contend with. The name of the game is simple: survive.

Ben embarks on a summer of self-discovery that includes, amongst other things, becoming besotted by a beautiful Australian backpacker, an accidental Brexit march and a road rage attack. There's also the matter of saving his marriage, which is proving harder than he imagined, mainly due to an unfortunate pyramid scheme and one quite large bottom.

But when Ben learns his father has a secret, it takes the whole family on a trip to Scotland that will make or break their summer - and perhaps Ben's life.

From Jon Rance, bestselling author of Dan And Nat Got Married and About Us, comes a comedy about one man, one family, trying to survive the hardest six weeks of the year together.

THE FAMILY CHRISTMAS SURVIVAL GUIDE

It’s Christmastime, there’s no need to be afraid. Or is there? Ben and Sally’s youngest, Jake, wants to become the next Gordon Ramsay and is cooking his ‘famous’ fish curry. Eldest, Alfie, is turning sixteen and wants to have sex with his girlfriend, and middle child, Liv, is attracting the attention of a boy. But worst of all, Sally’s parents are coming to stay.

Sally’s dad is quite racist and being an ex-boxer, likes to surprise Ben with the occasional punch. Her mum is super Catholic and likes to complain about everything. All Ben wants is to have a nice Christmas with his family, just like the good old days, but it soon becomes clear that isn’t going to happen.

Featuring a hilarious cast of extras including two gay neighbours, a pissed off donkey, a randy Greek waiter, and a barman with a complicated food ordering system. This is one Christmas you’ll never forget!

From Jon Rance, comes the festive follow-up to 'The Summer Holidays Survival Guide'. A comedy novella about one man, one family, trying to survive Christmas the only way they know how - together.
