Publisher's Summary

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.All Crompton's celebrated characters are here: Ginger, Couglas, and Henry, the long-suffering Brown family, oily Hubert Lane, and 6-year-old control-freak Violet Elizabeth Bott. And leading the way, that timeless righter of wrongs, the incomparable William Brown himself.

This cuts out the true ending

The CD version of this has the full ending. This version ends prematurely. It makes no sense as to why the ending was edited out.

Another Winner

Martin Jarvis is THE narrator for the "Just William" stories. His voices are perfect.
Written about a mischievous boy, these stories are perfect for middle schoolers on up. I LOVE the stories when I need a light, amusing, well-told tale.
