Summary

In "More William" by Richmal Crompton, readers are once again transported to the charming and mischievous world of 11-year-old schoolboy William Brown and his group of friends known as the Outlaws. The book is a collection of short stories that showcase William's humorous escapades, often resulting in unexpected outcomes. Crompton's writing style is witty and engaging, capturing the essence of childhood mischief in a lighthearted and entertaining manner. Set in early 20th-century England, the book provides a nostalgic look at a bygone era with timeless themes of friendship, imagination, and the innocence of youth. Richmal Crompton, a former schoolteacher, drew inspiration for her stories from her experiences with children and her observations of their behavior. Her deep understanding of the dynamics of childhood relationships shines through in the vividly depicted characters and delightful anecdotes found in "More William." Crompton's ability to blend humor with poignant moments makes her work relatable to readers of all ages. I highly recommend "More William" to anyone looking for a delightful read that celebrates the joys and trials of growing up. This charming collection of stories will undoubtedly bring a smile to your face and warm your heart with its timeless appeal.

    Peter Lerangis, the New York Times bestselling author of the Seven Wonders and Max Tilt series, returns with the second installment of his electrifying trilogy about a boy who discovers that he alone can alter the course of history.  
    Ever since Corey Fletcher found out that he’s the world’s first “throwback,” with the power to not only visit history, but change it, he’s been spending as much time in the past as possible. Corey loves using his skills to fix problems and help his friends and family. But as Corey becomes more and more addicted to rewriting history, he learns that time travel might change him in ways he may never be able to reverse.   
    Aware now that he can’t keep going into the past forever, Corey decides to use the trips he still has to change history in the most meaningful way he can imagine: by stopping Adolf Hitler. But when Corey travels back to World War II-era Germany, he quickly learns that the forces of history are strong and that it’s going to take a lot more than his good intentions to turn back the tides of evil—or even to survive them.    
    Get ready for time-warping adventure with a historical twist in the second book of the Throwback trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Peter Lerangis, whose books have sold over five and a half million copies worldwide.
