Until she inherited 25 thousand dollars, Sally’s life used to be quite simple – a huge inheritance makes everything much more complicated, even the relations with one she loves and trusts most. A young unsophisticated heroine of Wodehouse's novel “The Adventures of Sally” has to put her life back together. Here Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, an English writer of the 20th century, relates, with wit and charm, of disasters and adversity money can bring along.
“William Tell Told Again” is a Pelham Grenville Wodehouse’s variation of a story of Tell.

The author takes some liberties with the legend itself, and certainly turns it into a humorous light-hearted children’s story.
An enjoyable reading for old and young; for Wodehouse’s admirers and for those who are still on the threshold of the brilliant humorous and charming world of his books.
