5.0 out of 5 stars Just read it! 4 Oct 2000
By A Customer
However old you are, pick up a William book and I guarantee you will enjoy it. I started reading them when I was around 10, and have read them sporadically ever since. The humour appeals to adults and children alike, and Richmal Crompton's delicate touch will leave you begging for more. You follow William from the 20s, through the war and beyond, he is there when tv is invented, he is there all through it, but he is always 11 years old. He and his mates never change and never lose the will to enjoy life and laugh at problems Comfort reading of the highest order, kids today with their Harry Potter and Playstations should not be kept away from excellent writing like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Humour 1 Feb 2001
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I love William, he makes me ache with laughter and this book is no exception. Crompton writes with a wonderful irony and wit that hits the target every time. I do think these are better suited to older children and adults though as the language can be quite stylised and I think the humour can often miss its mark with smaller children. I expect they enjoy the adventures and slapstick side of things though. Lovely.

It has always amazed me that William books are not more widely read and appreciated than they are. I would rate them all as childrens classics of the best kind. A must read for anyone with a sense of humour and a real understanding of a child's mind
