A classic novel about Uncle Fred, the Earl of Ickenham by P.G. Wodehouse, the great comic writer of the 20th century.
Frederick, Earl of Ickenham, remains young at heart. So his jape of using a catapult to ping a silk top hat off his grumpy half-brother-in-law is nothing out of the ordinary - but the consequences abound with possibilities.
