This book is about a boy William, who is always in trouble, but sometimes it really isn’t his fault. It was Ginger who showed him the book about Robin Hood, and it was Violet Elizabeth Bott’s idea to steal from the rich and give to the poor. Unfortunately, the only rich person they know is Violet’s father, so William’s latest plan to right the world’s wrongs is sure to lead to catastrophe.
This book is just amazing, it really shows how humour can stand the test of time. Although
this series of “William” was written 94 years ago, it is still remarkably funny today. The writing is exceptional, Richmal Crompton really captured William’s character and portrayed him in the most shocking, outrageous way.
The book was really interesting to read, and the narrator was excellent, and the stories were innocent and reminded one of a more innocent time while being entertaining and lots of fun.
I really like this book and love the idea of having different sets of stories in one book. I would recommend it for children above the age of 9 because children under the age of 9 can find it boring.
