Richmal Crompton, who wrote the original Just William stories, was born in Lancashire in 1890. In all, thirty-eight William books were published, the last one in 1970, after Richmal Crompton’s death. Martin Jarvis, who has adapted the stories in this book for younger readers, first discovered Just William when he was nine years old. He made his first adaptation of a William story for BBC radio in 1973 and since then his broadcast readings have become classics in their own right. Martin is an award-winning actor who has appeared in numerous stage plays, television series and films.
