    eBook (Otbebookpublishing, March 20, 2020)
    "Just William" is the first book of children's short stories about the young school boy William Brown, written by Richmal Crompton, and published in 1922. The book was the first in the series of William Brown books which was the basis for numerous television series, films and radio adaptations. Just William is also sometimes used as a title for the series of books as a whole, and is also the name of various television, film and radio adaptations of the books. William Brown is an eleven-year-old boy, eternally scruffy and frowning. William and his friends, Ginger, Henry and Douglas, call themselves the Outlaws, and meet at the old barn in Farmer Jenks' field, with William being the leader of the gang. The Outlaws are sworn enemies of the Hubert Laneites, with whom they frequently clash. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

  • Just William: Just William 1

    Richmal Crompton, Taylor Pepper, Audioliterature

    Audiobook (Audioliterature, March 16, 2019)
    "Just William" is a collection of children's short stories by Richmal Crompton. William in the title is a young school boy of eleven, eternally scruffy and frowning. He and his friends, Ginger, Henry and Douglas, call themselves the Outlaws, and meet at an old barn. The Outlaws are sworn enemies of the Hubert Lane-ites, with whom they frequently clash. Ginger is almost as tousled, reckless and grimy as William himself. He has been known to take over in William's absence and is his best friend. Henry brings an air of wisdom to the otherwise non-academic Outlaws. Never liking to own up to being at a loss, he can always deliver the knowledge that the Outlaws need. Douglas, perhaps the most pessimistic of the Outlaws (though it has never stopped him joining in with any lawless activity) is the best of them at spelling. He spells knights "gnights" and knocks "gnocks". The Outlaws take pride in this because, unlike them, he knows the contrariness of the English language. Richmal Crompton (1890-1969) was initially trained as a schoolmistress but later became a popular English writer, best known for her William series.
