Publisher's Summary

William Brown, the loveable rogue created by Richmal Crompton in the 1930s, is as well-received and enjoyed today as he was almost 80 years ago. Martin Jarvis has long been the voice of William, and brings a youthful sense of joy and a childlike excitement to the reading.

Best William Book

This was the first William book I read 50 years ago. It remains my favourite. Martin Jarvis is William. Brilliant performance. An easy 5 stars in all categories.

Wonderful stories beautifully read

Where does William - The Pirate rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One!

Who was your favorite character and why?

William of course. He is such a hilarious, lovable character.

What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Beautifully read. His take on Williams voice seems perfect.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and then I ordered all the rest.

Any additional comments?

It's hard to get the boys to bed on time - none of us can bear to stop at just one story.

Wonderful

Wonderful to get an unabridged version of Martin Jarvis's brilliant reading. I know all these stories backwards, but they still make me chuckle.

simply brilliant - don't listen when driving

So funny. Beautifully read. Had to get my daughter to turn it off when I was driving. Just not safe could make you crash with laughter

Wonderful

I have loved the just William books all my life and the books read by Martin Jarvis are wonderful. They are perhaps a little dated, but they are funny, thought-provoking and a joy to listen to. Martin Jarvis is an exceptionally good narrator. I often listen to the William books in the car and sometimes Williams exploits make me laugh out loud and there have been times when I have cried with laughter.
