    I enjoyed the Just William stories enormously. My favourite stories were ‘William the intruder’ (where he wrecks his brother Robert’s courting of Miss Cannon) and ‘The Outlaws’ (where he considers ransoming a friend’s baby that he was looking after and there’s a hilarious encounter with a cow). After the adventures in The Outlaws were all over, and he has to return with the baby and wrecked pram, the book reads, “With a ‘heart steeled for any fate’ William turned the corner into his own road…” The stories give a gentle and comic view and critique of family and social life, mixed in with great slapstick moments – the writing reminded me a little of P G Wodehouse.
