Summary

Richmal Compton's William the Fourth is the fourth classic set of adventures featuring the hero of Just William, with an introduction by screenwriter and Cosmic author Frank Cottrell Boyce, Whether he's occupying a bear suit that's slightly too small for him, cloaked in mystery as a fortune teller or attired in the flowing robes of a Fairy Queen, William is unmistakably himself: trouble in human form. Only Great-Aunt Jane manages to take William on at his own game – and win! There is only one William. This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, loveable imp of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his hundreds of thousands of admirers since 1922.

Now she is stuck in the little town with buckets of water pouring over her all the time. She’s not even allowed in the graveyard. She’s spunky, pushy and has as much fun as she can - given her situation - being 11 years old forever. 
    The Boy - Nate was dragged to live in the little, hick town by his mother. All he wants is to get back to his friends and his dad back in Boston. He doesn’t have any friends here and doesn’t want any. 
    The Mystery - Mattie can’t find her body. She only has eight days to find it or she is banished to the Badlands forever. 
    The Weird Thing - Nate can see Mattie. He’s the first person in a long time who can. 
    The Others - A crazy, old cat lady, some old lady ghosts, a friendly librarian. 
    Time is running out and Mattie’s Pa is back from the grave, swinging his axe and trying to stop Mattie and Nate.

    A profound wisdom which transforms and liberates.  In this book we feel the absolute directness and freedom of Zen. With clear words that expose each illusion, Zen Master Zensho captures the essence in a nutshell. He shows us the mirror of our true being, and in it we recognise our constantly present buddha-nature, our original, true self. His clear words are filled with such spiritual force that they touch us at our very deepest. Here, the logic of our conceptual, discriminating thinking is often profoundly shaken so that we can grasp the truth beyond all words.  In a clear and lively way, Zensho shows us a direct path to spiritual realisation and, by means of authentic Zen-anecdotes and quotes, he brings to life the old masters of Zen. With Zenistic consistency, everything is swept away so that we are able to reach liberation of the mind beyond our limited intellectual logic and can experience the state of pure awareness.  Special to this book are Master Zensho's 50 expressive drawings, which breathe the Zen mind. A book which imparts the fundamentals of Zen-Buddhism.
