Book Description

October 2003
This is the second unabridged release of the classic William series. It was on Christmas Day that the centipede appeared on Aunt Evangeline's plate, the library clock was found mysteriously dismantled, and the conjuring trick with the egg went disastrously wrong. But as William's Aunt Lucy told him, "A Busy Day is a Happy Day"—and William is always eager to please adults. The terror of the Brown family is back, leaving a trail of havoc behind him—with the very best of intentions, of course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just William Sept. 28 2010

The only problem is that the producers had the name of the author wrong; it's a by Richmal Crompton not Richard Crompton.
The book is a return-to-childhood experience which I enjoyed. I believe there are other "William" books in the series. They are about an eleven year old innocent delinquent who has a nice time living his life outside the adult perimeter.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book you will ever read April 6 2012
By Reesez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The best part about this book isn't the humor nor the plot its the writing style William acts like a honest to goodness kid he's not the drama queen teenager nor the kid who gets picked on and crys through the whole book like a baby he's a real kid one who loves adventure and getting into trouble

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Overall but not the best tales of William June 29 2013
By Mr. J. M. Haines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It seems to me as if the much loved and remembered Richmal Crompton had two versions of William in her literary noddle. There's William that most know - rumbustious, boisterous but with the resulting chaos never really looked for - but there's also another William not so likeable - deeply jealous, vindictive and malicious; this collection is mostly, sadly, tales of the latter. In most of this book, William breaks, steals and lies because he wants to, and I think, possibly, this is what another reviewer has also noticed in relation to his comment that this book didn't seem to contain the William Brown he remembered from years ago.

There are still some brilliant bits, whole chapters even (the Christmas one is excellent), but overall, not the best collection of stories from over the years.

Although it is also obvious across many other William tales, it's something you realise the more William books you read, it did not seem a priority for Richmal Crompton to utilise and maximise William's gang - its members of course, Henry, Douglas and Ginger aka the Outlaws; these do not feature here as such (at least not in 'gang formation'), and the only other character who threatens to scream to the power of three (minus lisp and without throwing up ensuing) is a young boy, Thomas, and not the one forever associated with this threat, Violet Elizabeth - this young lady is nowhere to be seen, but we do get Joan Clive, and she is a lovely support character in the Christmas chapter.

There are better William books than this, and better collections of previously published stories; this is ok, just about, but the other books are better as they feature a less wilfully destructive version of the boy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, fun read Sept. 6 2012
By Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Always well written, More William continues in the well-tried tradition of the William books. While ostensibly a young adults book, this is in fact written for adults, who can see themselves either as they were or as they would have liked to be. Amusing, witty, and with enough differences in each short story to keep us entertained. Enjoy.
