Summary

Another welcome volume of stories in which Martin Jarvis, "the wizard of the talking book", makes the voices of Richmal Crompton's scruffy hero William and his gang of outlaws his own. Now as famous on radio and audio as they are in print, the adventures of that irrepressible and ageless schoolboy William Brown have been delighting both young and old for decades.

Perpetually scruffy, mud-stained, and mischievous, he is a lovable scamp whose pranks usually end in disaster - for his harassed elders at least. With friends Ginger, Douglas, and Henry, and that angelic thorn-in-his-side, the lisping Violet Elizabeth Bott, William has rightly joined the literary, and radio, immortals.

What's Not to Like?

Martin Jarvis is the only person to read these stories, no one else would be as good!
I had several of the William books as a child but I am amazed that there are still so many that I haven't heard. Just brilliant.
