    1. This was a hilarious set of stories. It is set in a more innocent time when children were allowed to be a lot more independent than they are now and were forced to use their imagination more because the only electronic entertainment they had was the radio. Martin Jarvis is a first rate narrator and he really brings the stories in the audiobook to life. I like William and his long suffering family and really enjoyed the "problems" he and his friend the outlaws got themselves into. An added bonus [...]

    2. Some quite good William stories here, and for the first time his group of friends (the Outlaws) starts taking its definitive shape. William Brown is a great literary creation, and still funny a century later.

    3. Was given this book as a child, this character is hard to hate. Characters are traditional and nostalgic.

    4. The main reason I decided to go ahead with this one is that I wanted to read the famous debut of Violet Elizabeth Bott. There is a ring of truth to Violet Elizabeth stronger than any other I've experienced so far, and her introduction adds quite a bit of much-needed variety to the series, as do the other stories featuring the Bott family. I was pleased to discover that this book features quite a lot of typical boyhood adventures with the Outlaws as a foursome, just as I wished for in my last rev [...]

    5. William strikes again - a juvenile whirlwind strewing chaos in his wake with his usual mixture of over-enthusiasm, misunderstanding of the crazy adult world, single-minded desire for revenge and, let's face it, pure naughtiness. Were he around today he would be taken into care by social services or diagnosed with ADHD & doped to the gills with Ritalin. Instead in the 20's & 30's such behaviour seemed to strike people as being a nuisance but not hugely remarkable - people may not have bee [...]

    6. Violet Elizabeth’s eyes filled with tears again.‘You do like all little girlth, don’t you?’ she persisted with quavering lip. ‘You do, don’t you?’‘Yes, I do,’ he said hastily, ‘I do. Honest I do.’She smiled again radiantly through her tears. ‘You with you wath a little girl, don’t you?’‘Er – yes. Honest I do,’ said the unhappy William.‘Kith me,’ she said raising her glowing face.William was broken.He brushed her cheek with his.‘Thath not a kith,’ said Vi [...]

    7. I used to read the Still William books every sunday afternoon after church in 5th and 6th grade. They were funny then and they're funny now! I love William, he reminds me a little of myself! My sister used to fall off her bed, laughing while reading Still William! They may be children's books but their appeal goes beyond. Its a great way to unwind after a tiring week.!

    8. The William series is one of my best childhood memories. My fiance recently gifted me this book. I relived all my memories at the age of 24 and I was in splits once again. Though classified as a childrens' book, all ages can enjoy Richmal Crompton.

    9. Ahr about four years I would go to sleep every night to the wonderful voice of Martin Jarvis :) Hilarious stories! Especially "William and the White Cat"
