Film of popular children's stories
11 March 2019 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

The Just William books began being published in the 1920s and went on till 1950.Books of this nature were very popular.I preferred Enid Blyton "Five"series.Now I can see why.Williams antics are a pain in the backside as he really is insufferable.I never liked the circus.The sight of those poor elephants being made to prance around is rather disturbing.Not very entertaining.
