Publisher's Summary

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:

William Goes To The Pictures
William The Intruder
William Below Stairs
The Fall Of The Idol
The Show
A Question Of Grammar
William Joins The Band Of Hope
The Outlaws
William And White Satin
William’s New Year’s Day
The Best Laid Plans

P. G. Woodhouse meets Booth Tarkington

Very reminiscent of Tarkington 's Penrod books (among the funniest books ever written) and just as good.

Wonderful story, beautifully read.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. The whole family listened to Just William stories on a very lengthy car trip (15 hours drive). The time passed quickly, with my 7 year old boys, my mother-in-law, myself and my husband entranced by the stories. We roared with laughter at Williams antics and at times the car literally shook with laughter.

The stories are so simple and yet extremely clever and the reading is wonderful. My husband still repeats some of the phrases sometimes: "I'm just bein' plite" says my husband in his best William voice when he does something especially annoying...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Just William?

Every story was just so wonderful it's hard to pick a favourite moment. I'd say my best memory was looking around at the faces of my family, the seven year old boys and their grandmother sitting togethor, eyes bright with joy, at one, roaring with laughter.

Which scene was your favorite?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh, and laugh and laugh some more. At one point, we were rolling around the floor (in the Shakespeare story) weak with laughter. The boys didn't get all of it, but they did get the 'ham and eggs and bacon' jokes.

Any additional comments?

You will love, love, love these stories. I have already told my mother off for not giving them to me as a child. But I can still enjoy them now!!

Recording is broken

What disappointed you about Just William?

The recording is broken in places so jumps between completely different stories. Was really looking forward to listening but continuity of recording has let a great story and performance down.

Would you be willing to try another one of Martin Jarvis’s performances?

Martin Jarvis's performances are excellent, actively seek out ones read by him.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Just William?

The editor just needs to make the recording flow and correct the cutting and pasting errors.

Any additional comments?

It's a broken recording don't waste your money.

Takes me back to my childhood

I read the Just William books so many times as a kid. They never failed to make me giggle uncontrollably. They still do. Even better, this book reminded my of my own impulsive mishaps. "I didn't mean to." Was something I said a lot.
