[Read by Frederick Davidson]
When the 'Little Nugget', alias of thirteen-year-old Ogden Ford, bulgy, rude, chain-smoking son of an American millionaire, arrives at Sanstead House School, the fun has just begun. He is named ''the Little Nugget'' due to his immense ransom value, being a prime target for kidnappers. Mr. Peter Burns, a none-too-dedicated schoolmaster engaged by snobbish Mr. Abney to educate his handpicked pupils, soon finds himself and his enraptured class at the mercy of an American gunman--and at the beginning of a series of truly mind-boggling adventures--in a delicious Wodehouse tale of suspense, excitement, and romance.

P. G. WODEHOUSE (1881-1975), an English-born journalist and novelist, lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. In a career spanning over sixty years, he wrote more than ninety books. During the 1920s Wodehouse collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals, and in the 1930s he expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.From AudioFile:
Davidson is assuredly the most popular and published Wodehouse reader, with more than 23 of the comic masterpieces under his belt. This book, relatively early Wodehouse, is the usual romp through a high-class British countryside populated by eccentrics, coincidences, wild misunderstandings and a touch of evil. American kidnappers are after the repulsive child they call "The Little Nugget." Our hero defends! Davidson nearly drawls as he moves from one situation to another, sharply distinguishing the male characters, from a pompous schoolmaster to the obnoxious nugget himself. His rendition of an American thug is particularly funny, Chicago and the Bronx combined. Great fun! D.W. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
