Only in the hands of British humor master P.G. Wodehouse can a plot involving a horrendously spoiled child and a slew of botched kidnapping attempts become an uproariously funny comedy of errors. Ogden Ford, the Little Nugget referred to in the book's title, is a petulant brat who has been coddled to the point of no return by his indulgent parents. Because of the family's immense wealth, Ogden represents a big fat payday to various nefarious characters. Will one of the crews abscond with the Little Nugget, or will altruism win the day?
