A Pelican At Blandings

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

Unwelcome guests are descending on Blandings Castle - particularly the overbearing Duke of Dunstable, who settles in the Garden Suite with no intention of leaving, and Lady Constance, Lord Emsworth's sister and a lady of firm disposition. Skulduggery is also afoot involving the sale of a modern nude painting (mistaken by Lord Emsworth for a pig). It's enough to take the noble earl on the short journey to the end of his wits. Luckily, Clarence's brother Galahad Threepwood, cheery survivor of the raffish Pelican Club, is on hand to set things right, restore sundered lovers, and solve all the mysteries.

Aunts Aren't Gentlemen

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

Bertie Wooster has been overdoing metropolitan life a bit, and the doctor orders fresh air and rest in the depths of the country. But after moving with Jeeves to his cottage at Maiden Eggesford, Bertie soon finds himself surrounded by aunts - not only his redoubtable Aunt Dahlia, but an aunt of Jeeves's too. Add a hyper-sensitive racehorse, a very important cat and a decidedly bossy fiancee - and all the ingredients are present for a plot in which troublesome aunts can exert their terrible authority. But Jeeves, of course, can cope with everything - even aunts, and even the country.

Synopsis:

Lord Emsworth has commissioned an official portrait of his most dearly beloved - the Empress of Blandings, twice silver medal winner of the Fat Pigs class at the Shropshire Agricultural Show. However, the man who arrives to take on the job is not the celebrated artist he claims to be, but Galahad's godson Bill Lister. Smuggled into the castle by an old pal in order that he may elope with Prudence Garland, Bill finds himself somewhat out of his depth when it comes to porcine paintings. And mayhem rules as a valuable diamond necklace is juggled about all over the place...

Steeple Bumpleigh is a rural idyll. But for Bertie Wooster, it might as well be marked with a warning that Here Be Dragons, being the domicile of his Aunt Agatha (the one who eats broken bottles and conducts human sacrifices by the light of the full moon). Nevertheless, he is dragooned into visiting, Jeeves in tow - to the satisfaction of his valet, who is anticipating a happy holiday spent availing himself of the excellent fishing in the local river.

But the rowdy secrets of Ginger's past, contained within the book, threaten to damage his popularity with the straitlaced town...
