Who would think that an eighteenth-century silver cow creamer could cause so much trouble? Uncle Tom wants it, Sir Watkyn Bassett has it, and Aunt Dahlia is blackmailing Bertie to steal it. With relations between Bertie and Sir Watkyn being far from cordial (ever since the Boat Race night, when Sir Watkyn fined the young Wooster five pounds for pinching a policeman’s helmet), the situation looks tricky. Arriving at Totleigh Towers, Sir Watkyn’s country seat, matters get progressively worse. The nightmare crew includes not only that fierce old magistrate but his right-hand man, the frightful Roderick Spode. Add to that Madeline Bassett, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Stiffy Byng, and Harold “Stinker” Pinker and there’s only one thing to say: “What ho, Jeeves!”

Quotes & Awards

  • “Jonathan Cecil’s gifted narration brings uniqueness to this (among the many) audio presentation of the ongoing adventures of Jeeves and Bertie. The narrator adopts a mixture of seriousness and hilarity in this story about a much coveted eighteenth-century cow creamer and Bertie's attempt to “rescue” it for his always difficult Aunt Dahlia. It is a credit to Cecil's style that listeners will listen closely to and follow the frequent puns, misunderstandings, and wordplay.”

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.
