This book is the 10th book in the Just William series by Richmal Crompton. Being one of the earlier Just William works, this book was quite difficult to get hold of. Felt lucky when I accidentally found this on the Internet Archive.

As usual William and friends do perfect justice to their 'outlaw' way of life in almost every story. Mr. and Mrs. Brown too make their appearances in some of the stories, though Robert and Ethel are absent in most.

Among the 10 stories in this book - William's Double L

“ Let's be detectives when we grow up," suggested Douglas.

" No," said William. " It's more fun bein' the man that comes along an' finds out all about it when the detectives have stopped tryin'. I'm goin to be one of that sort. I'm goin' to go on readin' myst'ry tales all the time from now till I'm grown up an' then I bet there won't be any way of killin' folks that I won't know all about so I'll be able to catch all the murd'rers there are an' I bet I'll be famous an' they'll put up a stachoo to me when I'm dead."

" I bet they won't," said Ginger, irritated by William's egotism. " You'll prob'ly get murdered yourself before you've tound out anythin' at all an' then Douglas an' Henry an' me' 11 find out who did it an' get famous.”
