Comedian and best-selling author Tony Hawks is embarking on his greatest adventure yet - moving from city life in London to deepest Devon in the West Country. You can take the man out of the city, but is the countryside ready for him? Comedian and born-and-bred townie Tony Hawks is not afraid of a challenge - or indeed a good bet. He´s hitchhiked round Ireland with a fridge and taken on the Moldovan football team at tennis one by one. Now the time has come for his greatest gamble yet - turning his back on comfortable city life to move to the wilds of the West Country. With his partner, Fran, in tow and their first child on the way, he embraces the rituals of village life with often absurd and hilarious results, introducing us to an ensemble of eclectic characters along the way. One minute he´s taking part in a calamitous tractor run, the next he´s chairing a village meeting, but of course he still finds time for one last solo adventure before fatherhood arrives - cycling coast to coast with a mini pig called Titch. In the epic battle of man versus countryside, who will win out? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tony Hawks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hodd/000816/bk_hodd_000816_sample.mp3.

But now she faces her greatest little challenge yet: Becky’s two-year-old daughter, Minnie. While motherhood has been everything Becky dreamed it would be - Baby Dior, Little Marc Jacobs, and Dolce & Gabbana for toddlers - adorable Minnie is wreaking havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening.
