Read full description of the books Just -- William:Mr. Heppleback, the glazier, cycled slowly down the country lane and in at the gate of the small detached house in which the Brown family lived. His practised eye swept the scene before him, coming to rest finally on a shattered pane of glass in a window on the right of the door. He nodded to himself with an expression of mingled amusement and resignation, then dismounted, unstrapped the sheet of glass from the back of his cycle and rang the bell.
A middle-aged woman, wearing an overall, opened the door. She had a flat expressionless face, and she looked at Mr. Heppleback without apparent interest.
"Mornin", Emily," said Mr. Heppleback. "How's yourself?"
"Might be worse," said Emily in a voice that doubted it.
Mr. Heppleback cocked his head over his shoulder.
"Dining-room window again, I see?"
"Again 's the word," said Emily with a sigh.
Read information about the authorRichmal Crompton Lamburn was initially trained as a schoolmistress but later became a popular English writer, best known for her Just William series of books, humorous short stories, and to a lesser extent adult fiction books.
Crompton's fiction centres around family and social life, dwelling on the constraints that they place on individuals while also nurturing them. This is best seen in her depiction of children as puzzled onlookers of society's ways. Nevertheless, the children, particularly William and his Outlaws, almost always emerge triumphant.
