9780140284621: Uncle Fred in the Springtime (A Blandings Story)

Pongo Twistleton is in a state of financial embarrassment 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 himself admits, 'there are no limits, literally none, to what I can accomplish in the springtime'.

From the Back Cover:

A Blandings novel

Uncle Fred is one of the hottest earls that ever donned a coronet. Or as he crisply said, ‘there are no limits, literally none, to what I can achieve in the springtime.’

Even so, his gifts are stretched to the limit when he is urged by Lord Emsworth to save his prize pig, the Empress of Blandings, from the enforced slimming cure of the haughty Duke of Dunstable. Pongo Twistleton knows his debonair but wild uncle shouldn’t really be allowed at large – especially when disguised as a brain surgeon. He fears the worst. And his fears are amply justified.
