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 (The Outlaws), and the angelic, lisping, thorn-in-his-side Violet Elizabeth Bott, William has rightly joined the literary, and radio, immortals. This volume of Just William features the following stories:

The Sweet Little Girl in White
A Birthday Treat
The Outlaws and the Triplets
A Bit of Blackmail
William Makes a Night of It
The Leopard Hunter
William and the Lost Tourist
The New Neighbour
William the Philanthropist
William and the Prize Cat

Response to the reading of "Just William"

Some stories ended too abruptly,spoiling the effect of the climax of the story. Otherwise very enjoyable.

A Class Act

I've listened to and enjoyed all of the William books read by Martin Jarvis, they are an example of everything a talking book should be. These books were not originally written as kids books but were for adults - they are beautifully crafted pieces of English and an example to everyone of how to tell a short story. Each "Adventure" is about 15 minutes long and follows the exploits of William Brown and his gang - "The Outlaws". Its amazing how understandable his attitudes are even though the stories were first written about 80 years ago and relate to English Middle Class values and households with maids and gardeners etc.
Finally if there was an Olympic event for narrators Martin Jarvis would be the multiple Gold medal winner. I can't recommend these books enough but please, please give them a try and Audible please get the rest of the books!

Never Disappoints

Richmal Crompton's stories of William are so delightful I read them over and over and still laugh aloud. Martin Jarvis's narration is spot on and adds so much to the stories.
