Enid Blyton at Her Best!

AdvantagesBrilliant, timeless stories

DisadvantagesLanguage can be hard to understand in places

"...what springs to mind? Maybe the adventures experienced by the Famous Five? How about the escapades of the Secret Seven? Or the loveable Noddy and friends? These are all well known stories that out parents read to us and in some cases we are reading to our children. But what about the adventures of Jo, Bessie and Fanny? Or the funny ways of the Saucepot Man? Or Moon-Face, the man with a great beaming, round face along with a great beaming smile? Hmm, ..." Read review

Hidden Sexual Innuendo? No, Just Fantasies! Review with images

AdvantagesImaginative stories, incredible lands, and heroic characters.

DisadvantagesSlightly dated.

"...Blyton, in my opinion, is the most amazing children’s author of all time. As I look fondly back, I’m sure most will remember the feelings of excitement and exhilaration that swept over us as we sunk deeper and deeper into the fantasy lands Blyton created. Turning the pages as the tension rose, and wondering what would become of the colourful characters she created, our imaginations were captured by her amazing stories of adventure-loving children ..."

Advantagesexcellent, magical, well written children's book

Disadvantagesslightly dated now

"...to really enjoy all of the Enid Blyton books, namely The Famous Five series. But, there was one of her books that was the most creative of them all - well, actually it was a series of books about three children and their adventures up the Faraway Tree. The first book in this series is called The Enchanted Wood, and sets the scene for the books to come. After thinking about The Enchanted Wood, and all of it's follow-ups, for a few days, I pulled ..." Read review

Enid (Mary) Blyton (1897-1968)

AdvantagesWonderful read

DisadvantagesNone

"...some of her characters including The Famous Five, The Secret Seven and more famously Noddy and Big Ears and the other folk of Toyland. This book is a particular favourite of mine - i remember as a 7 year old sitting around the teacher intently listening as everday she read 2-3 pages of this book to us before hometime. I passed my love of it onto my younger sisters and am now reading bits of it to little one who loves it just as much as i did ..." Read review

Enchanting Work! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat book from about age 7 - 30!!

DisadvantagesLanguage tricky to understand in parts for youngsters!

"I remember the moment clearly. It was a warm March day in 1986 at St Gerards school and Mrs Fitzpatrick got us all to sit infront of her desk. She had a new book to read to us. There was about 30 of us all 6&7 year olds making a racket as usual. I think the teacher had read the first three lines and there was a stunning silence. She had done it, shut the rabbel up! Amazing, how could a book have such an impact. This is the kind of book I am talking ..." Read review
