Richmal Crompton

A picture of the author Richmal Crompton

Richmal Crompton (1890 - 1969) was an English schoolmistress and writer. She is renowned for her humorous short stories and her Just William series of books and stories.

Crompton has been added to the library to feature her peculiar little "Christmas" story, The Christmas Present. It's a story that you will probably figure out before the ending, but one you will still look forward to finishing anyways.
