Pongo Twistleton is in a state of financial embarassment and it's not for the first time. Uncle Fred, meanwhile, has been asked by Lord Emsworth of Blandings to foil a plot to relieve him of the Empress, his much-adored prize pig.

Along with Polly Pott (daughter of dear old Mustard), they form a deputation to Blandings Castle, a party of innocent imposters bent on doing 'a bit of good to two loving hearts'. For, as Uncle Fred admits, 'there are no limits, literally none, to what I can accomplish in the springtime'.

    This book is absolutely hilarious! Listening to the audiobook is even better than the regular book. The reader Jonathan Cecil brings life to all of the characters.

    Uncle Fred is a great character. He gets up to great mischief but only in the name of helping other people, having some fun, and "spreading sweetness." He can talk his way through anything. He truly is at his best in the springtime.

    I thought I wasn't a fan of British humour but this is nothing like the 1990s British sitcom.
