Originally published in 1949
I was an avid Enid Blyton reader as a child - reading all her books - fairy stories, Secret Seven, Famous Five etc.
Although she is quite dated in someways now and her characters naive compared to today's children, the stories are endearing and the adventures were exciting to me as a child.
I still remember making 'blackcurrant tea' from jam, as they do in this story!
