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.
