My Man Jeeves

My Man Jeeves is by P.G. Wodehouse. The first book in the Jeeves series. A selection of eight short stories that introduced the world to that most indomitable of butlers, Jeeves, and his half-baked employer Bernie Wooster - who was known as Reggie Pepper in four of the eight stories. Several of these stories were re-worked into later books, but if you love dry British humor you can't help but snicker at these tales. While these books are not everyone's cup of tea, they are classics of their time and worth at least being exposed to; they give new meaning to the phrase "the butler did it."

Ratings: 10th grade - 8 out of 10.
