Everyone's favourite troublemaker, William Brown, is back in Richmal Crompton's William, a hilarious collection of stories from the classic Just William series – with a gorgeous cover illustrated by the award-winning Lauren Child and an introduction by actress Bonnie Langford.

Greyhound racing was a wonderfully exciting idea. After all, William's dog, Jumble was as likely to be a greyhound as anything, and surely no one would mind the Outlaws borrowing another dog to race against him. Would they?

This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, lovable imp of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his admirers since 1922.
