Book Review: Famous Five: Five On A Treasure Island by Enid Blyton - Reviewed by GavelBasher (06 Sep 2015)
The best for a first read!
Enid’s books were the catalyst which encouraged me to start reading more than 50 years ago. Thank you, Enid. The BBC, many libraries, local authorities and alleged educational experts have been completely wrong about the worth of the Blyton works. I can remember having substantial difficulty obtaining the original books as so many places would not stock them.
When one did find copies they were quite expensive all those years ago but great to own. I loved the letter on the back cover from Enid and the physical appearance of the book which I treasured as a youngster and the way the books were produced made it easier to read.
It is a delight to read the stories again in middle age although recent editing has diminished some of the memories I have of the original editions and words used then. Never mind… these books remain one of my best friends for life as they began my reading adventure so do read these special adventures.
