Ben Hatch is on the road again. Commissioned to write a guidebook about France (despite not speaking any French), he sets off with visions of relaxing chateaux and refined dining. Ten thousand miles later, his family's been attacked by a donkey, had a run-in with a death-cult, and - after nearly drowning, and a calamitous wedding experience involving a British spy - his own marriage is in jeopardy. A combination of obsessions about mosquitoes, French gravel and vegetable theme parks means it's a bumpy ride as Ben and his family move from one unexpected adventure to the next. Funny and poignant, ROAD TO ROUEN asks important questions about life, marriage, and whether it's ever acceptable to tape baguettes to your children's legs to smuggle lunch into Disneyland Paris.
