    "My boys loved it - laugh out loud funny"
    Where does Just William's Greatest Hits! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great book, certainly one we would rank highly


    What about Martin Jarvis’s performance did you like?

    Great!


    Any additional comments?

    Whilst this is an old book therefore the language is dated, it still works and is fun!

    "Family Entertainment!"
    Would you listen to Just William's Greatest Hits! again? Why?

    We all JUST love 'Just William' Witty and charming like the main character! My Son is eight and has grown up enjoying the audio books he's now getting some of the jokes which went over his head in previous years and is able to join in with my husband and myself when we laugh out loud at the daft scenarios that William gets himself into. Our youngest is four and still misses the main points of laughter but can enjoy from more basic level.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Just William's Greatest Hits!?

    Every story is full of laughter and depth.


    Have you listened to any of Martin Jarvis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    All of the books are wonderful and we have enjoyed on many a long car journey.

    What made the experience of listening to Just William's Greatest Hits! the most enjoyable?

    It was really funny and made you ache with laughter.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was William because he is always coming up with silly and funny ideas wich 99% of the time fail.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed the scene were this little girl William knows run away from school in a disguise of a teachers coat and one of the older girls wigs according to the story she looked ridiculous.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Nothing Martin Jarvis is a brilliant narrator and didn't slip on anything.

    Cool
    Outstanding
    The only problem is that the network doesn't work very well and it suddenly turns off
    It is very short
    You listen to it over and over again and it is so boring
