The Small Bachelor is a novel by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on 28 April 1927 by Methuen & Co., London, and in the United States on 17 June 1927 by George H. Doran, New York.[1] It is based upon Wodehouse and Guy Bolton's book for the 1917 musical Oh, Lady! Lady!![2]

The story tells of the romantic troubles of George Finch, a short-statured would-be artist living in New York's Greenwich Village.

A theatrical adaptation, entitled Over the Moon, was written by American playwright, Steven Dietz. It premiered at the Arizona Theatre Company in 2003, and was subsequently seen at the Seattle Repertory Theatre. [1]
