Product Description

Everyone's favourite troublemaker, William Brown, is back with a contemporary cover look illustrated by Joe Berger and an introduction from actor and comedian Charlie Higson.

Everyone's favourite troublemaker is back and up to no good!

William 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 . . .

Richmal Crompton's William the Conqueror is a collection of thirteen brilliant Just William stories with an introduction by actor and comedian Charlie Higson, appealing contemporary cover art by Joe Berger, along with the original inside illustrations by Thomas Henry.

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

Enjoy more of William's adventures in William in Trouble and William the Outlaw.

Richmal Crompton was born in Lancashire in 1890. The first story about William Brown appeared in Home magazine in 1919, and the first collection of William stories was published in book form three years later. In all, thirty-eight William books were published, the last one in 1970, after Richmal Crompton's death.Introduction - i: Foreword by Charlie Higson Chapter - 1: Enter the Sweep Chapter - 2: A Birthday Treat Chapter - 3: The Leopard Hunter Chapter - 4: William Leads a Better Life Chapter - 5: William and the Lost Tourist Chapter - 6: The Midnight Adventure of Miss Montagu Chapter - 7: The Mysterious Stranger Chapter - 8: The Sunday-School Treat Chapter - 9: William the Philanthropist Chapter - 10: William the Bold Crusader Chapter - 11: The Wrong Party Chapter - 12: William Starts the Holidays Chapter - 13: Revenge is Sweet First published in 1922, Richmal Crompton’s much-loved Just William series features some of the most enduring characters in children’s literature. Along with his gang of Outlaws, the mischievous and eternally scruffy William Brown gets up to all sorts of trouble. From the first title in the series, Just William, to the final title, William at War, these books are charming, nostalgic, funny and are the perfect remedy for children aged 9-11 who are tired of hearing about goody two-shoes. The books feature original inside illustrations by Thomas Henry and each cover has been individually created by some of the most talented illustrators of our time – from illustrators such as Chris Riddell, Lauren Child and Rebecca Cobb (to name but a few!) each cover brings the delightfully impish character of William Brown to life in its own originally quirky way.
