Where’s Winston? The Book Fairies celebrate the launch of Jack Whitehall’s book

How To Survive Family Holidays, the book – along with several cardboard cutouts of Winston – were hidden by book fairies this week!

The Book Fairies are excited to mark the release of How to Survive Family Holidays by the Whitehalls in a slightly different way… in true book fairy style, we have been hiding copies of this new hardback – however, we have also be placing card cut-outs of Winston all around the UK!

The finders of these little Winstons will have the chance to win a SIGNED copy! Fans of the show Travels with my Father will know all about Winston, the doll adopted into the Whitehall family and who now, against Jack’s wishes, joins them on every adventure…

About the book:

One part Lonely Planet, one part tell-all family memoir, this is the definitive and hilarious guide on how to survive your family holiday, by Jack Whitehall, with a little bit of help from Michael and Hilary Whitehall.

No one family has more experience of travelling together than the Whitehalls. Indeed they’ve been allowing us a window to their escapades for the past five years in the hit Netflix show ‘Travels with my Father’ and in this hilarious book they have now decided to pool their advice for fellow travellers. To lay out the pitfalls of family holidays. The dos and don’ts, the highs and lows. In doing so they are sharing some of their best anecdotes. Their most extreme experiences and their most valuable advice. It is part memoir of family life, part travel guide, and full on, laugh-out-loud funny.

Whatever your version of holiday preparation the truth is always this: if it is with one’s own family, no amount of sunshine, wine or holiday spirit will stop your worst character traits coming to the surface. You have just volunteered to spend a week in close proximity with the people who know you best and who will neverĀ everĀ let you forget a f***-up. No one survives unscathed. Things are always going to end in tears, you can only hope they’re of laughter.
