A Prefect's Uncle

A Prefect's Uncle - P.G. Wodehouse It's not only humor and the turn-of-phrases that are trademark Wodehouse in this book. Wodehouse always projects the feeling that nothing really bad can happen in his world; more than that, nothing really bad can even be imagined. That's what makes all his books so restful and worth reading even if they don't yet have the many-layered plot and subtle brilliance of the best in Jeeves or Blandings series. The outlook of a happy schoolboy that he managed to retain through his entire literary career.
