Meet William, probably the best literary young character ever written. This book takes you from his perspective as he marks the highs and lows of his family, especially pointing about the laziness and scheming quality of his father and his poor mother. He had the best relationship with the farmhand, who was a black man. The fun-filled book about the boy and him clashing wits with whoever he could find.
