'William is as fresh and funny as ever' - Chris Riddell

'Gloriously funny' - Sue Townsend, author of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4

There is only one William. This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, lovable ball of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his hundreds of thousands of admirers since 1922.

William Brown and the Outlaws are up to their old tricks with more hilarious mischief, mayhem and muddles. When Aunt Lucy says that 'a busy day is a happy day', William does his best to keep himself very busy indeed. Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates his efforts.

Including fourteen fantastic stories, More William is as funny as ever. This delightful children's classic features the original inside illustrations by Thomas Henry.

Enjoy more of William's adventures in Just William, William Again, William the Outlaw and William at Christmas.

What’s funniest about William is when he’s thumbing his nose at authority
Crompton’s voice is dry, wry and ironic, in a style that you could say echoes Evelyn Waugh’s . . . The Just William stories are, above all, funny
