Book Description

Jun 1989 William
In this full-length "Just William" novel, William and the Outlaws decide to form the Knights of the Square Table, 'rightin' wrongs' for a minor fee ('Small wrongs: sixpence. Big wrongs: one shillin'). In their quest to earn enough money to become tramps, they stop at no amount of do-gooding, embarking on a plan to marry off their older brothers. William becomes a veritable Don Juan as he woos a visiting film star for his brother (much to the surprise and annoyance of his brother's girlfriend). Soon the gang have planned a midnight haunting to scare off old monkey face from the big house on the hill - after all, where else will they find a home for the happy young couple? Martin Jarvis portrays the whole gang in this riotous comedy that leaves William teetering on the brink of disaster and success...'Martin Jarvis' recording of Richmal Crompton's "Just William" stories are works of genius' - "Independent".

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Williams Luck 28 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely brilliant Martin Jarvis was born for this role. I own several other william cd's(for my grandchildren to listen to of course) but I think this is the best, his character voices do change a little from cd to cd this is the way they should sound(in my opinion).I listened to it in the car (not recommended) difficult to drive whilst you're laughing your socks off & other motorists give you some very strange looks.I think everyone should have a copy then we'd all know what's so funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars William Book 22 April 2012

Having been an avid William Brown fan when I was a child, it has been quite nostalgic collecting the whole series. I only have 4 to complete the series and every one has been ordered via Amazon. An amazing way to shop !

5.0 out of 5 stars Just William's Luck - review 22 April 2011
By January
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm sure William (the character) is well know enough not to need an introduction. As with all William books by Richmal Crompton this book is witty, funny, well-written & conjures up the world of the 1920's and 30's in detail. A really good fun read.
