William the Fourth Summary

William the Fourth by Richmal Crompton

William is up to his old tricks and ready for trouble!

Richmal Compton's William the Fourth is the fourth classic set of adventures featuring the hero of Just William, with an introduction by screenwriter and Cosmic author Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Whether he's occupying a bear suit that's slightly too small for him, cloaked in mystery as a fortune teller or attired in the flowing robes of a Fairy Queen, William is unmistakably himself: trouble in human form. Only Great-Aunt Jane manages to take William on at his own game - and win!

This collection of fourteen brilliant Just William stories features appealing contemporary cover art by Lydia Monks, along with the original inside illustrations by Thomas Henry.

There is only one William. This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, loveable imp of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his hundreds of thousands of admirers since 1922.

Enjoy more of William's adventures in William Again and William the Conqueror.
