Just William's Luck is a novel in the Just William series, written by Richmal Crompton. Just William's Luck is the only full-length novel in the series; the rest of the book are collections of short stories.

Ginger has a brand new bicycle. Why? Because Hector, his older brother, is getting married. So William's logic whizzes into action. If Ginger got a new bike because his brother is getting married, then... if William, Henry and Douglas get their elder brothers married, they'll get new bikes too! But getting their brothers married is a lot more difficult than William imagined...

Reader's Reviews


Excellent William book. The full-length novel gives a different experience, but it's still really good. And the ending is brilliant!

The hero William Brown does not always do "right" things. He (and his friends) sometimes steal things and tresspass on private property. At one point, they "haunt" a house (breaking in, and then turning on and off lights, etc.)

Despite all this, the story is essentially morally sound. There's a clear sense of right and wrong, and although William and his friends are often in trouble, the book does not really condone the wrong things they get up to.
