Just William Summary

Just William by Richmal Crompton

A tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, lovable ball of mischief, William Brown has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his hundreds of thousands of admirers since 1922.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features original illustrations by Thomas Henry and a foreword by novelist, dramatist and screenwriter Roddy Doyle.

Just William is Richmal Crompton's first book about the incorrigible William Brown. Follow his adventures from getting over a school teacher crush to a failed attempt at baby-sitting, and from throwing a wild party to meeting his faithful dog Jumble in this hilarious collection of stories.

Just William Reviews

Crompton's voice is dry, wry and ironic, in a style that you could say echoes Evelyn Waugh's . . . The Just William stories are, above all, funny -- Michael Deacon * Telegraph *
What's funniest about William is when he's thumbing his nose at authority -- David Barnett * Independent *
