I adore all the Jeeves & Wooster books, they actually make me laugh out loud. They are completely silly, but totally charming, and I love the world in which Bertie Wooster lives. The situations he finds himself in are so funny, and he is so totally inept at dealing with them – and then Jeeves sails along and solves everything effortlessly. These books never fail to make me laugh, and always put me in a thoroughly good mood.

In this book Jeeves has gone on his annual holiday (shrimping at Herne Bay), and Bertie is confident he is able to deal, alone, with whatever catastrophes life throws at him. He goes to stay at Brinkley Court, his Aunt Dahlia’s residence (and the residence of her French chef Anatole, he of the delightful mouth-watering dishes), and spends time with her fellow guests Bobbie Wickham (who he accidentally ends up engaged to, again!), Aubrey Upjohn (Bertie’s old school teacher who has always reduced Bertie to a stammering nervous wreck, and who Bertie accidentally throws a cup of tea over during their first meeting – one of the passages that made me laugh out loud), Kipper Herring (Bertie’s old friend, and intended fiancée of Bobbie Wickham), Roderick Glossop (pretending to be a butler – cue several funny scenes), Wilbert Cream (suspected of stealing the antique silver cow-creamer – an object stolen many times throughout the many Wooster books) and several other guests. All these guests manage to either confuse Bertie, use him for their own ends, become embroiled in Bertie’s bizarre schemes, and generally cause chaos to his life. Until Jeeves arrives, of course.

Jeeves is on holiday in Herne Bay, and while he's away the world caves in on Bertie Wooster. For a start, he's astonished to read in 'The Times' of his engagement to the mercurial Bobbie Wickham. Then at Brinkley Court, his Aunt Dahlia's establishment, he finds his awful former head master in attendance ready to award the prizes at school.
