William has a habit of being where he shouldn't be. But the village girls' school is the last place where he's likely to be making mischief . . . isn't it?
Richmal Crompton was born in Lancashire in 1890.
The first story about William Brown appeared in Home magazine in 1919, and the first collection of William stories was published in book form three years later.
In all, thirty-eight William books were published, the last one in 1970, after Richmal Crompton¹s death.
