PG Wodehouse The Code of the Woosters

Synopsis
 
TO a man who would barter his butler for an Jl oviform chocolate pot on three scroll feet, it would be but a short step to trade his chef— supreme artist though he be—for an eighteenth-century cow-creamer. That at least was Aunt Dahlia's view when she heard that her husband was proposing to cede Anatole to Sir Watkyn Bassett in exchange for the coveted cow-creamer. The only thing for it was to leg it hot-foot for Totleigh Towers, the Bassett residence, and pinch it from off the sideboard. Anatole must be saved at all costs ! When she arrived Bertie Wooster was already at Totleigh, pouring oil on the troubled waters of a lovers' breach between Madeline Bassett and Gussie Fink-Noitle. And all might have been well but for the presence of a small leather notebook and for the absence of a large policeman's helmet. As it was, Bertram became involved in an imbroglio that tested the Wooster soul as it had seldom been tested before, and even Jeeves, his head as ever bulging with brains, was put to it to find an adequate solution.
