Richmal Crompton

Literary Birthday – 15 November – Richmal Crompton

Richmal Crompton was born 15 November 1890 and died 11 January 1969.


Having come to the conclusion that there was so much to do that she didn’t know where to start, Mrs Fowler decided not to start at all. She went to the library, took Diary of a Nobody from the shelves and, returning to her wicker chair under the lime tree, settled down to waste what precious hours still remained of the day.

Richmal Crompton was a popular English writer, best known for her Just William series of books, humorous short stories, and to a lesser extent adult fiction books.
