A Prefect's Uncle

by P. G. Wodehouse

In the hallowed halls of St. Austin's School, young Farnie Alaric Pyke, known for his mischievous escapades, finds himself thrust into an unexpected role. His uncle, the esteemed Major-General Sir Egbert Thistleton, has taken charge of the school as the new headmaster. And as fate would have it, Alaric, the irrepressible joker, is assigned the coveted position of a prefect's uncle – an honor that comes with great responsibility and unimaginable consequences. Amidst a backdrop of English public school life, Alaric quickly realizes that his antics and pranks are now in jeopardy. He must balance his mischievous nature with the expectations of his new position, navigating a world of strict rules, disapproving teachers, and envious peers. But with his ingenuity and wily charm, Alaric concocts a series of uproarious schemes that threaten to turn St. Austin's School upside down. As the chaos unfolds, Wodehouse weaves a delightful tale filled with unforgettable characters, including the lovably bumbling headmaster, the eccentric teachers, and a colorful cast of misfit students. Through witty dialogue and clever plot twists, 'A Prefect's Uncle' showcases Wodehouse's unparalleled talent for comedic storytelling, leaving readers in stitches with each turn of the page. Join Alaric Pyke on a rollicking adventure as he attempts to maintain the delicate balance between obeying the rules and indulging his impish nature. Discover the answers in this uproarious comedy of manners from the pen of one of England's greatest humorists, P.G. Wodehouse.
