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 the angelic thorn-in-his-side, the lisping Violet Elizabeth Bott, William has rightly joined the literary and radio immortals.
