Further details

The summer holidays are nearly upon them but William and the Outlaws are feeling gloomy. A bad school report will mean lessons all summer for William and, worse still, the Botts have sacked their favourite gardener (and partner in crime) Bob.

A cunning plan is needed and portly Mr Bott's unsightly efforts to fight the flab give the Outlaws exactly that - with a little bit of blackmail that might just get Bob his job back.

And a chance encounter with his formidable Aunt Augusta allows William to get rid of his dreaded school report in a most ingenious way.
