Description-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. "If all girls are like that—" said William, "Well, when you think of all the hundreds of girls there must be in the world—well, it makes you feel sick." William's natural desire to do the right thing leads him into serious trouble, as usual, and when blackmail and kidnapping are involved, it's no surprise. Even when he turns over a new leaf, the consequences are dire. But it's his new neighbor Violet Elizabeth Bott who really causes chaos—and no one will believe that it's not William's fault . . . Everyone's favorite trouble-maker, William Brown, is back. Now with a brand-new cover look.
