Summary

The Just William series is a sequence of thirty-nine books written by English author Richmal Crompton. The books chronicle the adventures of the unruly schoolboy William Brown.
Published over a period of almost fifty years, between 1922 and 1970, the series is notable for the fact that the protagonist remains at the same eleven years of age, despite each book being set in the era in which it was written. The first book was Just William, and often the entire series is named after this book. Each book, with the exception of the novel Just William's Luck, is a collection of short stories.
The series has spawned various television, film, theatre and radio adaptations. It also has a large fan following, with such groups as the Just William Society.
Available since: 06/20/2020.

    Little Jack Horner sat in a corner, 
    Eating a Christmas pie; 
    He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum 
    And said, "What a good boy am I!" 
    LITTLE JACK HORNER lived in an old, tumble-down house at the edge of a big wood; and there many generations of Horners had lived before him, and had earned their living by chopping wood. Jack's father and mother were both dead, and he lived with his grandfather and grandmother, who took great pains to teach him all that a boy should know. 
    They lived very comfortably and happily together until one day a great tree fell upon Grandpa Horner and crushed his legs; and from that time on he could not work at all, but had to be nursed and tended very carefully. 
    This calamity was a great affliction to the Horners. Grandma Horner had a little money saved up in an old broken teapot that she kept in the cupboard, but that would not last them a great time, and when it was gone they would have nothing with which to buy food. But little Jack was a brave and hard working little lad who tried as best he could to help his grandparents earn a few pennies for food. Then, he rescued a stranger in a bog and their fortunes took a turn for the better. But you had best listen to the whole story to see why Jack had such a plum pie to eat that Christmas day!
