Strange title and cover art, but excellent book! Oh, how I love PG Wodehouse, even though I just discovered him yesterday. Above all, charming! Witty, fast moving...oh, I adored this book. British humor at its most delicious. Read full review

I read on the Fans of Wodehouse Facebook page that Wodehouse said he was particularly proud of this book. Good enough for me. I like it. The young hero reminds me a lot of the character Psmith, who we did not get nearly enough of. Read full review
