I love Just William

This book was a pleasure to listen to. I love William Brown, his antics make me laugh out loud and this was beautifully read by Martin Jarvis.

ITS WILLIAM YOU CANT GO WRONG

How times have changed and not for the better. These books and stories illustrate that so well. However history lesson aside the stories are simple, usually very funny, and from a byegone age of innocence and carefree life which I sorely miss. William and the Outlaws and their scrapes and amusing simple pastimes of Indians, spies, ducks and drakes stone throwing, treasure hunting and of course not forgetting jumble the dog and their family members who collectively together never fail to raise my spirits and cheer me up, just cant be beaten anytime. Easy gentle listening and thoroughly recommended.

Laugh out loud listening!

Any additional comments?

Perfect listening for summer time car travel. William is a guaranteed laugh generator for our family, and this audio book so skillfully narrated by Martin Jarvis is one of our Willian favourites.

All new stories

We are ardent "Just William" fans, always on the lookout for new stories. Martin Jarvis is the perfect narrator for this work. All the stories are ones we have never heard before. These are great for car trips with children. Richmal Crompton is not a formulaic writer, there are so many facets to her characters, they become like family, some you would prefer to see only once a year, some have their very own place in your heart.
