Enid Blyton Characters Reappear

It's interesting to me that I was just thinking about all the old Enid Blyton books I loved to read when I was a kid and in the mornings papers was this story: Famous Five Set to Find Fame. Made me feel almost magical.
I read the 'Secret Seven' series, the 'Famous Five' of course, but loved the 'Faraway Tree' trilogy and 'Wishing Chair' set more I think. My favourite of all the many though would have to be 'The Naughtiest Girl' books. I am sure I only read 2 or 3 of them, yet it appears there are 8 on this site.
If you want to learn more about Enid Blyton, The Enid Blyton Society website is absolutely a must read. It's quite amazing to see the list of writing, there are 100s of books. When I look through the list I see many other familiar books that I read as a child.

Oh yes, I remember Enid blyton. Used to read them in my younger days and imagined the thrill of going thru the time tunnel with them. Well, back to reality. Nice blog you got. Cheers from Fruity

I was the hugest fan of Enid Blyton. I've still got the St Clare books (a boarding school 6 book set). I've got others too, including Magic Faraway Tree which I read to my son every now and again.
