Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth, sank back in his chair looking like the good old man in a Victorian melodrama whose mortgage the villain had just foreclosed. He felt the absence of that gentle glow which customarily accompanied the departure of one of his sisters. Lord Emsworth needed Galahad. There are tricky corners to be rounded and assorted godsons, impostors, and pretty girls to be paired off. Fortunately, many years’ membership of the Pelican Club means the Honourable Galahad Threepwood is able to keep cool, stiffen his upper lip, and always think a shade quicker than the next man.

    " Love the Blandings books! Always so witty and entertaining! Wodehouse is wonderfully apt at a humorous/ironic turn-of-phrase that catches me off-guard and makes me laugh out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Thomas Sheppard | 2/19/2014

    " Hmmm. Not the best and brightest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ayaz Khan | 2/15/2014

    " A P G Wodehouse novel never fails to uplift the mood no matter which state it is in. A Pelican at Blandings, the first book I read in the Blandings series, was no exception. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by John | 1/23/2014

    " It's amazing how dear old P.G managed to wrangle so many variations on the same theme- the gorgon aunt/sister, pigs, young love thwarted then retrieved, the imposter and so on. A late entry in the field and not one of the best but still worth a chuckle or two "
