A wonderful rascal. Great language and absolutely hysterical! Also very good on audio! ( )

It's William!! A guaranteed rollicking read. Perhaps not as funny as some of the later books, but the spirit's still the same. :) ( )

I read the William books as a child, and despite being an obnoxiously well behaved child, I still wanted to think of myself as an "Outlaw".

I would recommend them to anyone of such an age. I think they are genuinely improving. Certainly my memory of William, as of the Swallows and Amazons, provides a well buried counter to my natural inclination towards the effete.

William also provides a good lesson in free will, independent spirit and free thought. Which cannot hurt. (Unless you wanted to make an extreme reading of the William stories as a prop to the capitalist establishment...)

William and Ginger - his faithful ally - are keen as always to raise some money. Of course it was William's idea to sell the twins... but somehow events don't work out as they had planned. Nor do William's attempts to be a great detective and a shipwrecked mariner.
