5.0 out of 5 stars I am Suprised . . . 2 Nov. 2000
By Victoria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am suprised that North America has missed such a classic. Even if it is very English, obviously India can appreciate it, so why not North America. I am fouteen and have been living in Canada for four years now, and have been reading my William books since I was much, much smaller. They are hilarious! Maybe if we write enough of these wistful reviews, someone will read thses books and decide to publish them in North America, too! (Hint)

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it over? 2 Oct. 2000
By Guillermo Maynez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Is good literature for children over? Do we have to conform ourselves with horrible pictures of violent and perverted cartoons? I am definitely not a moralist, but I grew up in a world where you could read Guillermo (William) and find good, interesting adventures by a bunch of outlaw kids, doing innocent but funny things in England, and feel identified with them ,even if you were a Mexican kid from the Northern desert, That is what I call universal identification. I hope these books will be available again soon, because the are very good. And Very funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic writing for children and adults 10 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My parents both read the William Stories and passed on their collections - mostly first or second edition Newnes in the cheaper red boards. I have been reading them for 30 years and never tire of their wit and charm. If you need your spirits lifted then "William and the Triplets" from William the Pirate cannot be beaten for sublime humour. My only regret is that I cannot find a copy of William the Lawless - a book that has become my holy grail!

5.0 out of 5 stars These books are available in the UK 9 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The William books combine ironic and slapstick humor with great writing--a sort of combination of Jane Austen and the Katzenjammer kids. I read many of them at night in bed while I was pregnant, and would laugh so hard I would shake the bed and wake up my husband. These books are available through Amazon.com.uk by mail order, in paperback at a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating reading for children of all ages 18 Mar. 2000
By Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The first "Guillermo" book I read was from our school library, and I quickly went through their entire supply. I asked for more books for my birthday and subsequently collected many tomes. These books inspired many of my childhood adventures and I would love to relive the experience and read them with my 8-year old son. They are charming, entertaining and very well written, and the translations into Spanish were very good. I would like to purchase the collection in English or Spanish, and I'm hoping they are made available soon at reasonable prices.
