The Just William audiobooks are probably the finest recordings the BBC has ever produced - yes, even better than Stephen Fry's Harry Potter. William is 100 years old and as agelessly funny as ever - desperate for adventure, sweets, admiration and all the things his unpleasant (or long-suffering) family deny him. Here he tries to sell some twins as slaves, encourages his grandfather to sneak off to the circus, becomes a great detective and (a most heartfelt story) continually interrupts a young novelist from penning his next masterpiece with perky suggestions and demands for more cake. Irrepressible, irresistible, he's perfect for families with children of over-9. Martin Jarvis is a genius, and so is Richmal Crompton - who, of course, was a woman and a schoolteacher so could study her subjects at close range.

When I was younger I ate up the William books but I still love them now that I am OLDER! No-one but Jarvis could read these books in such a delicious manner that has me in fits of laughter as I drive from place to place.
