    Just William is the first collection of hilarious short stories about 11-year-old William Brown - eternally scruffy and frowning. William's family - his elder sister, Ethel, and brother, Robert, placid mother, and stern father, and never-ending supply of elderly aunts - cannot understand him. William just likes doing things, that's all! It's not his fault he likes doing things, is it?

    Written in 1948 and made into a popular film the same year, Just William's Luck is the only novel Richmal Crompton wrote featuring her famous hero. The action takes place throughout one extraordinary day in William's life. It begins harmlessly enough in the old barn and soon develops into a riotous comedy-thriller as the invincible schoolboy hatches a plot to marry off the elder brothers of The Outlaws.
