In Just William at Christmas everyone's favourite troublemaker, William Brown, is back in a collection of hilarious festive stories - now with a gorgeous new cover illustrated by David Roberts. This is the perfect Christmas gift.
Join William as he visits his relations at Christmas, prepares for the local pantomime and enjoys the school holidays with his gang of faithful outlaws - attracting trouble wherever he goes. There is only one William.
This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, lovable imp of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his admirers since 1922.
