Duration: 7 hours 10 minutes
When the Little Nugget, alias thirteen-year-old Ogden Ford, 'bulgy, rude, chain-smoking son of an American millionaire,' arrives at Sanstead House School, the fun has just begun. Mr. Peter Burns, a none-too-dedicated school master engaged by snobbish Mr. Abney to educate his hand-picked 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.
'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!''AudioFile
