A follow-up to the hilarious À La Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rural France
After six years in the idyllic Loire Valley, comedian Ian Moore, his family, and his ever-expanding menagerie are beginning to feel like they’re on the cusp of the peace and tranquility they hoped for when they moved from dreary Crawley to la belle France. Their grand project, a writing school called Les Champs Créatifs, is finally complete—only, nobody’s signed up. Natalie and the boys must contend with the ever-colorful locals, including a Sicilian faith healer, threatening hunters and the "Christmas Pudding Man," and Ian must test his mod mettle against two new additions to the animal family—a pair of disappearing goats. With stresses, strains, and animal poo mounting up la famille Moore have their work cut out—but they’re determined to give it their best shot!
