Uncle Fred, or to give him his full title of Frederick Altamont Cornwallis Twistleton, fifth Earl of Ickenham, is considered by some as a splendid gentleman—a sportsman to his fingertips. Mr. Twistleton, nephew to the Earl, and otherwise known as Pongo to his friends, has a differing view. He simply describes his uncle as being loopy to the tonsils. But when the eccentric and well-loved Uncle Fred plays Cupid to Lord Emsworth, his old friend at Blandings Castle, little did he know that he would be known as Impostor A and the Lord’s beloved pig, the Empress, as Impostor B.

    " Wodehouse plots actually make me gasp and shriek aloud as especially delicious twists are introduced. I yell at the pages in much the same way my mother yells at the television. And few things satisfy more than watching twelve seemingly random plot threads tie up into one neat bow. Uncle Fred's attempts to spread sweetness and light bring such qualities to my life, even if I'm not the intended target. "

    " A rollicking time with potty uncles, pampered pigs, stately castles, dukes, earls and a couple of commoners. Full of laugh-out-loud stooge-type archaic humor that makes for just a plain ol' fun read. "
