Quotes & Awards

  • “Please listen to this book at home, while walking or lazing about on the patio or veranda. Do not listen while operating motorized equipment because you’ll laugh too hard and could cause an accident…Cecil is bursting with characters large and small, male and female, pompous and clueless, and he reads with an all-encompassing energy that is both infectious and satisfying.”

    " A light romance with many funny moments as the hero, a writer, is drawn into running a chicken farm and meets the girl of his dreams. Had me cackling with laughter at several points. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/16/2010

    " Classic Wodehouse. Lots of phrases to enjoy, like one character referring to others as "old horse" and lots of tongue in cheek humor.
    I listened to it on audio book and I really liked the narrator. He sounded just like he should. "

    " My daughter wants me to tell everyone that in this book chickens fell in love. They didn't really. People fell in love, while among chickens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marynna | 5/4/2010

    " Classic Wodehouse -- clever, delightful. This breezy story will be especially appreciated by very young, especially proficient readers, as the language is cleverly crafted and there are no themes which would be inappropriate for young children.

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
