"Piccadilly Jim" is a novel by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the U.S. on February 24 1917 by Dodd, Mean and Co., New York, and in the U.K. in May 1918 by Herbert Jenkins, London. The story had previously appeared in the U.S. in the "Saturday Evening Post" between June and November 1916.

The novel features Ogden Ford and his mother Nesta (both previously encountered in "The Little Nugget" (1913)). Nesta has remarried, to the hen-pecked, baseball-loving millionaire Mr. Peter Pett, and Ogden remains spoilt and obnoxious. Charismatic Jimmy Crocker, Nesta's nephew and a reforming playboy, is called upon to assist in the kidnapping of Ogden, amongst much confusion involving imposters, crooks, detectives, butlers, aunts etc. - all in the name of romance of course.

"Piccadilly Jim" has been adapted for the silver screen in 1920, 1936 and 2004 - the 1936 version stars Robert Montgomery as Crocker, while Sam Rockwell took the role in 2004, with a sceenplay adapted by Julian Fellowes and directed by John McKay.
