Just William (Macmillan Classics)
|Series:||Macmillan Children's Classics|
In Richmal Crompton's Just William the Outlaws plan a day of non-stop adventure. The only problem is that William is meant to be babysitting. But William won't let that stop him having fun with his gang - he'll just take the baby along! There is only one William. This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, lovable ball of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his hundreds of thousands of admirers since 1922. This wickedly funny children's classic features original inside illustrations by Thomas Henry, a ribbon marker and a specially commissioned foreword by Roddy Doyle. This beautiful hardback edition will introduce William Brown and the Outlaws to a new generation of children.
Everyone's favourite troublemaker, William Brown, is back in this beautiful Macmillan Classics edition.
Richmal Crompton was born in Lancashire in 1890. The first story about William Brown appeared in Home magazine in 1919, and the first collection of William stories was published in book form three years later. In all, thirty-eight William books were published, the last, William the Lawless, in 1970, after Richmal Crompton's death.
