Written by Richmal Crompton, 'Just Jimmy' is a collection of stories in which Jimmy could almost be younger brother to William Brown (of 'Just William' fame). Like William, Jimmy has a big heart and all of his efforts go towards trying to make his family and friends happy. Unfortunately, and again like William, his plans always take a turn for the worst, or don't turn out in the way that he intended. Fortunately for a listener, this makes for a myriad of classic comedy moments.
As well as making you laugh, 'Just Jimmy' is a touching and warm tale, in which children will be proud to see themselves, and in which adults will see their children and grandchildren...maybe even themselves at Jimmy's age...
