This was a mildly amusing retelling of the William Tell legend. The original edition included color illustrations by Philip Dadd and verses by John W. Houghton. The reader should be careful in selecting an edition. The free Kindle version that I downloaded did not include the illustrations and the verses were all together at the end. Not all paper copies include the pictures either. ( )

First released in 1904, this was P. G. Wodehouse’s fifth publication. His first four books are set in an all-boys’ school, whereas this is a complete departure, mixing historical fiction, humour, and child fiction.

I almost avoided this tale with it being aimed at children, but after reading a few reviews by adults I thought I’d give it a go. It’s not bad and makes a change whilst featuring elements of what would become Mr Wodehouse’s unique writing style. ( )

Very disappointing and really rather fatuous. Not at all what I have come to expect from the Master. ( )

First words
Once upon a time, more years ago that any body can remember, before the first hotel had been built or the first Englishman had taken a photograph of Mont Blanc and brought it home to be pasted in an album and shown after tea to his envious friends, Switzerland belong to the Emperor of Austria to do what he liked with.
