The Little Nugget is one of the earliest works of Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, an English writer, whose prolific writings continue to be widely read.

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE (/ˈwʊdhaʊs/; 1881–1975) was an English author, humorist and scriptwriter. After being educated at Dulwich College, to which he remained devoted all his life, he was employed by a bank, but disliked the work and wrote magazine pieces in his spare time. In 1902 he published his first novel, The Pothunters, set at the fictional public school of St. Austin's; his early stories continued the school theme.

The Wodehouses were still there the next year, when the Germans rolled through, appropriating the villa, confiscating property, and arresting Wodehouse. Wodehouse was in various German camps for about a year; he was released in 1941 just shy of his sixtieth birthday and was allowed to go to Berlin. It was there that he recorded five radio talks to be broadcast to America and England. The talks themselves were completely innocuous, but the response back home was betrayed. No one ever forgot the radio talks, even though Wodehouse was cleared of any propoganda.

by P. (Pelham Grenville) Wodehouse. He would have seen merely a very faulty and amateurish portrait of a singularly repellent little boy of about eleven, who stared out from the canvas with an expression half stolid, half querulous; a bulgy, overfed little boy; a little boy who looked exactly what he was, the spoiled child of parents who had far more money than was good for them.

I love it. This 1913 book looks to me like a Wodehousian, novel-length retelling of O'Henry's 1910 short story The Ransom of Red Chief.

This must have been produced before Wodehouse settled into his formula. It is different from the formulaic works. It is more of a serious adventure novel than the usual musical comedy without music that he usually produced. It isn't just different, it is also a very pleasant and satisfying read.

I recommend it.
This Wodehouse book that was so different from all of the many others by him which I've read. Each one of the main characters was so delightfully depicted: I couldn't help rooting for them. The plot was straightforward and easy to follow. There were subtle and insightful commentaries on the foibles of our species. There was humor, drama, romance, and best of all, a happy ending. I would highly recommend this book to all Wodehouse fans. There was not a single part of it i didn't like.
When I first started this story, I thought I wasn't going to like it, but because it is by Wodehouse, I continued reading and fell in love with it. The trials and tribulations of falling in love in a unique setting with a happy ending. Another excellent read by P.G. Wodehouse.
Part of the fun of P. G. Wodehouse's stories is that even when you know where the characters will end up, it is usually by a path which is unpredictable. Unfortunately, that isn't true in the case of "The Little Nugget". While the story does have a few curves in it, compared to a typical Wodehouse it is a veritable straight line. The book is divided into two parts. The first is very short, and introduces the character of Ogden Ford, i.e. The Little Nugget, and his mother Nesta, as well as her associates which lead us to the narrator of the second part of the book, Peter Burns. Peter has been asked by his fiancée Cynthia (who works for Nesta Ford) to kidnap Ogden from the school in which his father has placed him, and deliver The Little Nugget to his mother.

While there are a few moments in the story, in general it just doesn't measure up to the other Wodehouse stories that I have read. In particular it pales compared to "Piccadilly Jim", which sees the return of Ogden and his mother, but in a different setting and with a much more entertaining plot full of twists and turns. In particular, this is not a good choice for someone unfamiliar with Wodehouse, as they would miss out on what a typical Wodehouse story is like.

This is an early Wodehouse book, first being published on August 28, 1913 by Methuen & Co. London. In the U.S., it was first published on February 10, 1914 by W. J. Watt and Company. This edition is part of The Collector's Wodehouse series published by Overlook Press in the U.S., and in the U.K. it is known as The Everyman Wodehouse series published by Everyman's Library. This title is not part of one of Wodehouse's series, although as mentioned before there are characters that appear in a later book.
this Is delightful romance and adventure at a boarding school. This is a fun book and has different Wodehouse characters.
This is a delightful read, but the Kindle version seems to have quite a few typos- not anything much but enough to distract you and make it annoying once in awhile. That's the only reason I didn't give the Kindle version 5 stars.
However happy your mood, reading a Wodehouse book will turn it up a notch. The early Wodehouse novels are no exception. "The Little Nugget" is funny, exciting, and romantic. It doesn't have as many memorable lines as a Jeeves and Wooster story, but it's definitely worth reading and is very interesting to those of us who have already read and re-read "The Inimitable Jeeves."
This book, from early in Wodehouse's career, is wonderful. It starts a bit slow with some necessary setup info, but once it switches to first person about thirty pages in, it crackles right along to the end in P.G.'s funhouse style. Four separate kidnappers, a lost love, and a wealthy young man getting his first taste work all swirled together the Wodehouse way equals a sure cure for what ails ya.
