Just finished reading this aloud as a family in the evenings. Pure unadulterated joy and hilarity! If I could give it 100 stars, I would. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Blandings Castle. I love Jeeves and Bertie, but if I had to choose, I'd always pick Gally Theepwood and Clarence at Blandings. Oh yes.... and the lovable and large Empress of Blandings..... the pig!
