5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure Book Review 2 Jan 2008
This griping book by Enid Blyton is yet another excellent story for anyone who enjoys a good adventure. The story features four children; Philip,Jack,Lucy-Ann,Dinah and a comical talking parrot Kiki.
In the first story The Island of Adventure the four children are saying at Philip and Dinah's home for the holidays when they fall into an amazing adventure on the mysterious Isle of Gloom.
In The Castle of Aventure the four children are excited by an old castle on the hill but they are no longer excited by it when they fall yet again into a scary and thrilling adventure.
I have read both stories and many more by Enid Blyton and strongly recomend the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enid Blyton, Queen of children's crime stories. 26 April 2009
As always, Enid Blyton is the leader when it comes to writing crime fiction for eight to ten year olds.
Mystery and suspense are her middle names!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old Enid 28 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My kids just adore Enid Blyton, and she has made bedtime much more fun, though I do have to point out occasionally that the books were written a long time ago and of course girls are just as good as boys and don't have to be left at home because things are too dangerous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Nostalgia 22 Feb 2011
By Hiraethus o Gymru VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I still had the other four titles in Enid's "Adventure" series, which were received back in the early 1960's as presents from kind relatives. These other titles I had borrowed from the library. Now I have the complete set, which will be passed on to my grandchildren, and I hope they will love the stories as I did. This series was my favourite read as a child and I found it relaxing and refreshing to return to those days if only in my (second) childhood. Beautiful books set in a gentler time which, sadly, we shall never experience again.

5.0 out of 5 stars adventure series 17 April 2003
By Ana Montoya - Published on Amazon.com
Enid Blyton is wonderful. I read all the books in the adventure series, and the Secret Seven series. I am buying those books for my nieces. I read them when I was in school, in Spanish and I remember that it was so hard to put them aside. A must buy for children and helps with their imagination. I very strongly recommend both series. It will be nice if Amazon will carry both complete series.

My Mother read my siblings and I these books when we were kids. We just loved them and would hate when she would have to put it down for the night. I will for sure read them to my kids when I have them. Thank you Amazon for carrying these wonderful books by this wonderful Author.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 smashing stories 22 April 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
The first book was least better than the second one but it was still really good. the adventures were really smashing!!! these books by enid blyton are suitable for 7 to 11 and some of the famous five series ages 8 to 12 (some of the adventures are quite violent).

The first 2 were quite funny. like at one time kiki (parrot) scared a few men at night in a castle, because they were looking for 2 peole (read it and you'll know who).

Some of it was boring but you just have to read it to get drawn into this book. Some of it was a bit too unreal.

all in all i thought this was another excellent book and anyone and i mean ANYONE should enjoy them!!! enjoy! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fond Memories 16 Jun 2007
By Michael Agnos - Published on Amazon.com
When I attended a private school for English speaking kids in Italy, Enid Blyton's "Adventure" novels were the most popular books in the school library. This was in 1964. Most of the eight novels were always checked out, and I was never able to read all of them by the time my parents took me back to the States. The ones I did read I enjoyed tremendously! Until I got a computer, I never knew you could buy them in the U.S. Most U.S. libraries don't have Blyton's books. But now, at the age of 52, I can now finish the series. Only I can't remember which novels I've read! Guess I have to read them all. Thanks Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Remembering from Childhood 31 Oct 2007
By M. Metcalf - Published on Amazon.com
I remember this series from when I was in 5th grade. I was in a new school system and my teacher Miss (Barbara) Holmes would read these stories to the class after we had finished that day's lessons, provided there was time.

I hung on every word. Miss Holmes read these stories with energy and joy and had us all wanting to hear what happened next. After reading "The Hardy Boys" mysteries and, as they said on "The Simpsons", wondering why it seemed they were all about smugglers, Enid Blyton's book were very different. They were great. They had characters that had depth. The stories were really suspensful and exciting. And they also a parrot that screamed "God save the Queen!" at the worst possible time. What more could one want?

Thank you, Miss Holmes. I hope others will be able to experience the joy I felt reading these stories, or, better yet, having someone read these books to them.
