Further details

When the Bott family move into Croombe Hall, William and his gang, The Outlaws, are horrified to find themselves banned from playing in the woods. But the worst is yet to come - in the form of the frilly yet formidable Violet Elizabeth Bott.

As his brother, Robert, inspired by Marlon Brando's Wild Ones, tries and fails miserably to romance the local ladies, William and pals Ginger, Douglas and Henry find Violet Elizabeth hard to shake off - until a game of Red Indians, a thrilling chase and a very muddy bog give the boys the chance to get even with the idiotic Mr Bott.
