Enid Blyton

When I was about 10, I discovered the Famous Five - four cousins and their dog who adventured all over Great Britain, solving mysteries and eating lots. I'm collecting vintage editions of her books written for the 12-ish age group - the Famous Five, Mallory Towers and St. Claire's (British boarding schools) and the Mistletoe Farm series (six cousins in that one!). They're just light, fun, happy stories that make you feel better when you're done reading them. If you're looking to buy books for a child you know, I highly recommend them.

Good golly, Noddy’s back!
