Boy scout William Brown is committed to a daily deed of kindness, but a little boy tests him to the limit. Read by Martin Jarvis.

Written by Richmal Crompton, and read by Martin Jarvis.

William Brown, surprisingly perhaps, becomes a Boy Scout - something his family agrees to in the hope that it will keep him out of trouble. William's sense of honour means that he takes most seriously his obligation to perform a daily 'deed of kindness'.

But an encounter with a very small, extremely objectionable little boy tests his resolve to breaking point.
