The book is fast-paced with some actions in it, making an exciting read and easy to understand. A rebel and die-hard optimist, William often shows a strong sense of responsibility when the situation demands, an unwillingness to back out of challenges and a bulldog-like determination to overcome hurdles. Neither mind nor body can wander far in those humane penitentiaries called schools. He is a Liberal, only William dismisses this as "Just Swank". She also changes in physical appearance; Joan Clive has blue eyes and bright golden curls, whereas Joans Crewe and Parfitt have dark eyes, dark curly hair and a dimpled complexion.

He said she had some good ideas, only they wanted working out. He is also something of a "social climber", eager to impress his friends and family with his worldly knowledge and important acquaintances.

We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.

Honeyball was engaged in the dark and dungeon-like kitchen below the worn flags of the archway, preparing the coffee and bacon for Mr. I knew how to differentiate between living and non-living matter, but I did William and the tramp book know that I was alive. Of his antecedents I have often wished to know something, but it was his whim to treat personal details in a very general way. What a genius I had when I wrote all that! At that time we lived almost at the foot of that interminable thoroughfare, the Finsbury Park Road, next door to a childless dame whose sole companion was a pug of surpassing hideousness of aspect, and whose sole recreation was a morning stroll in Finsbury Park with this pug. William also involves himself in different exploits with his outlaws, Ginger, Douglas and Henry.

Honeyball, in a tightly buttoned frock-coat and wide-awake hat, march with an erect and military air to the end of the passage, dart a piercing glance in either direction, and remain, hands behind back and shoulders squared, taking the [Pg x] air. Even if I unwisely [Pg 5] endeavoured to hide their literary character under a disguise of colloquialisms and familiar references to personal intimacies, I should fail, because, as I have just said, you know me well.

It is not too much to say that she believed in that manuscript much more than the author did. Ethel does, however, have quite a soft spot for William; she is genuinely distressed when she believes him to be sick, though William is often faking it.

Although the book is mainly written for children, it is also enjoyable to read as an adult. Here, however, sitting at tea in the intensely artistic flat on the third floor over a grocery-store, and [Pg xxxiv] looking out upon the River and the warehouses of the Surrey Side, the author is rapturously apprised William and the tramp book the William and the tramp book is as good as sold.
