Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This trio (1922, 1956, and 1970, respectively) present a liberal dose of the signature Wodehouse wit and charm. Fans will enjoy his familiar spoofs of uppercrust British stuffiness and mismatched marriages, all with a happy ending.

The usual coincidences and sterotypical Wodehouse characters (beautiful, brainy girl; tongue-tied, good-hearted rube; smarmy, ill-minded complicator-of-situations) without the usual convoluted schemes of his later works, so it's a pleasant read, especially if you act out the dialogue aloud.
