Just William by Richmal Crompton

I don’t remember why I had this audiobook nestled away in my Audible library, but it made for a good, quick listen while I was doing some chores. It was so well read by Martin Jarvis that you really felt the grumpy childish nature of dear William. I like the style of these older children’s books too, similar to Paddington and some of the Enid Blyton books, where your main character goes on a variety of different adventures, so each chapter is effectively a short story. It feels like you’re just dipping along for the adventure before dipping back out again. Very nice.
