Shelves: children-s It isn't brilliantly written but I think it is written brilliantly. It doesn't hold back on extending a young reader's vocabulary; it's ridiculously privileged in regard to the family life of the characters; it's chock full of repetition, deviation and repetition; and I loved every minute of it. It includes Milligan's best goon joke twenty years before Spike used it. There are all sorts of other modern classics that owe more than a little It isn't brilliantly written but I think it is written brilliantly. There are all sorts of other modern classics that owe more than a little to Richmal Crompton. It's my first time…my friend Shaun tried to get me to read Just William when we were in primary school together. Among other things I can see why it was a great favourite of the young John Lennon.
William Joins the Band of Hope — William is forced to join the Temperance movement along with the other Outlaws, but manages to turn the first meeting into a punch-up. The Outlaws — The first-ever William story.
William is forced to spend his precious half-holiday looking after a baby but decides to kidnap him and bring him to the Outlaws.
William and White Satin — When William is forced to be a page at his cousin's wedding, he becomes a figure of ridicule. However, he soon finds an ally in an equally reluctant bridesmaid, his cousin.
Characters[ edit ] William Brown is an eleven-year-old boy, eternally scruffy and frowning. William and his friends, Ginger, Henry and Douglas, call themselves the Outlaws, and meet at the old barn in Farmer Jenks' field, with William being the leader of the gang.
The Outlaws are sworn enemies of the Hubert Lane-ites, with whom they frequently clash. Ginger is William's faithful friend and almost as tousled, reckless and grimy as William himself. He has been known to take over in William's absence and is his best friend.
Henry brings an air of wisdom to the otherwise non-academic Outlaws.
Never liking to own up to being at a loss, he can always deliver the knowledge that the Outlaws need. In the first book, it is revealed that he is the oldest of the Outlaws. Douglas, perhaps the most pessimistic of the Outlaws though it has never stopped him joining in with any lawless activity , is the best of them at spelling. He spells knights "gnights" and knocks "gnocks".
The Outlaws take pride in this because, unlike them, he knows the contrariness of the English language. William's family — his elder, red-gold-haired sister Ethel and brother Robert, placid mother and stern father, and never-ending supply of elderly aunts — cannot understand William.
Only his mother has any sympathy for him, though his father sometimes shows a side of himself that seems to admit he was once like William himself. Other recurring characters include Violet Elizabeth Bott, lisping spoiled daughter of the local nouveau riche millionaire whose companionship William reluctantly endures, to prevent her carrying out her threat "I'll thcream and thcream 'till I'm thick" , and Joan Clive, the dark-haired girl for whom William has a soft spot.
Joan is sometimes considered a member of the Outlaws the only girl entitled to this high privilege and sometimes an "Outlaw ally" because she took a special oath. Shelve William The Rebel. William the Gangster by Richmal Crompton. When William Brown gives up his weapons and joins… More.
