This illustrated children's book was published in 1912 and contains sixteen chapters.

Bill the Minder is the name of a book and television series that tells of the adventures of a 15 year old boy and his cousins Boadicea and Chad. In the process of their adventures they meet many strange people and help solve their unique problems with the use of fantastic machines which Bill is very capable of crafting in a short time.

The original book was written and illustrated by W. Heath Robinson and published in 1912. The televised series contains a large number of the fantastic machines that Robinson is famed for.

The short series was produced at Bevanfield Films for Central Independent Television and shown on ITV. (*)

Book excerpt:

Old Crispin, the mushroom gatherer, and
his good wife Chloe had ten children, and
nine of them were bad-tempered. There
was Chad, the youngest and most bad-tempered of the
lot, Hannibal and Quentin the twins, Randall with
the red head, Noah, Ratchett the short-sighted, Nero
the worrit, weeping Biddulph and Knut. The only
good-tempered child was a little girl named Boadicea.
It is well known that a boy usually takes after
his father, and a girl after her mother, and these
children were no exception to the rule, for the boys
all resembled old Crispin, whose temper had been
rather tried, poor man, by the early hours at which
he had to rise, in order to gather the mushrooms when
they were quite new and young. On the other hand,
Boadicea could only have inherited her good-temper
from Chloe, who without doubt was the most good-
tempered dame alive.
