The mixture as before.

Brilliant. If you know William Brown of old you will love it. If you don't, then prepare to be delighted. Breathes there a soul so lacking in fun and larks that William leaves them unmoved, or, horrors, excites their distaste? Even this species of po faced killjoy owes themselves a go at him in case their dull monochrome lives might be transformed by his mischievous subversion of stuffy convention. Such larks!

Another Winner!

If you are a fan of Richmal Crompton's character William, you can't help but enjoy these Christmas stories. Jarvis does his usual terrific job of making William and his gang come alive with personality as they spread mischief in their small English town. These books were intended for adults, though my teenage kids have loved the stories.
