When the wealthy English gentleman Bertie Wooster meets with his friend Francis ”Bicky” Bickersteth, he hears that his friend is in a bit of a pickle. As usual, Bertie turns to his ever-trustworthy valet Jeeves for advice. In a game of pretend, the three try to solve Bicky’s problem but only end up complicating matters further. This humorous short story by P. G. Wodehouse from the early 20th century has been turned into a TV episode for the English comedy series ”The World of Wooster”. The story is read by the versatile B.J. Harrison. B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere. P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975), born Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, was a British author and one of the most prominent humorists of the 20th century. His memorable characters include the likes of Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves, who appeared in novels such as ”Joy in the Morning” (1946) and ”The Mating Season” (1949). His novels, short stories and musical comedies have been adapted numerous times for the screen and stage. These adaptations include ”Heavy Weather” (1995), a BBC-produced television film based on Wodehouse’s eponymous novel.
