The Lovereading4Kids comment
When Aunt Lucy tells William that 'a busy day is a happy day', William does his best to keep himself very busy indeed. Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates his efforts to cheer up Christmas Day - and when a conjuring trick with an egg goes very badly wrong, William finds himself in more trouble than ever! These fourteen fantastic Just William stories are as funny as ever.
A word from Martin Jarvis who has written the Foreword for More William
‘This is one of the funniest books I’ve read. When I was recording it for the BBC Audio a few years ago there were tims when I could hardly keep going, simply because of the situations in which Williams gets embroiled and the brilliant hilarity of Richmal Crompton’s writing. I’d be hooting with laughter, then just when I thought I’d regained some semblance of professional control, I’d glance up from the microphone, only to see the studio engineer and my co-producer doubled up with mirth on the other side of the glass... which set me off once more. Exquisite agony! The Harry Potter of the ‘20s’
A Word from Rebecca McNally, Publishing Director of Fiction & Poetry at Macmillan Children's Books:
'It's hard to believe that the naughtiest schoolboy in the world is 90 years old - and his antics are as hilarious today as they have ever been.

More William (90th Anniversary Edition) by Richmal Crompton
To celebrate Just William’s 90th birthday, his publishers Macmillan have re-released the first four titles in the series with some wonderfully retro ‘still naughty at ninety’ covers. The Just William books were loved and devoured by boys when they were first published and for generations since. Now a new generation of children can appreciate that kids were naughty, but also had a huge amount of fun, even 90 ago! Today they are also enjoyed by lots of grown-ups who also weren’t born 90 years ago; well known authors of today including Louise Rennison, Sue Townsend and Charlie Higson and not forgetting the wonderful Martin Jarvis, whose voice is, without doubt, William when you listen to the audio recordings of the books. So, whether you read these wonderful new 90th birthday editions or listen to the tapes, children and adults whose dream is still to be a hero, William is sure to help you along the way!
‘Today William would probably be put into therapy and made the subject of a documentary. Except, of course, William always got away with it. Despite the trail of chaos and anarchy he leaves behind, he always ends up as the only thing that any boy has ever wanted to be. A hero.’ - Charlie Higson (who has written a Foreword in William at War)
‘William’s world might not be familiar, but William certainly will be. He is that scruffy boy with the screwed up face and with his own logic, who pedantically questions every rule and sets out to break most of them.’ - Sue Townsend (who has written a Foreword in Just William)
‘Get ready to laugh until you think your boots will never dry. And on a more practical level, learn new ways to annoy people’ - Louise Rennison (who has written the Foreword in William Again)
‘Probably the funniest, toughest children’s books ever written’ Sunday Times
Richmal Crompton’s creation has been famed for his cavalier attitude to life and those who would seek to circumscribe his enjoyment of it ever since he first appeared’ - The Guardian
