I bought this tape for my 6 year old twins just before christmas and I can honestly say I have never seen them so quite. We had a power cut on Saturday and it proved to be a real winner! It was cold and snowy outside and we holed ourselves up in the sitting room with the fire roaring, the curtains closed, bowls of crisps and listened to this story. They sat through the whole two tapes without moving!! There are two stories, the first is about a girl, Elizabeth who is sent to boarding school and she is determined to be naughty and get sent home. But then she starts to enjoy life at the school and make friends and doesn't want to leave. The second follows her second term when she is determined to be good but keeps getting into all sorts of scrapes. We had such a lovely afternoon that I will definately be buying the next Naughtiest Girl in School tapes and as requested by my children, we'll turn off all the noise of modern life and just sit and listen. Brilliant!

My 6 year old had this for Christmas (as recommended by a previous review) and she hasn't stopped listening to it yet. She listens to both CDs every night and today asked me if there was a DVD/Video as she is dying to see what everyone looks like! A long discussion about imagination followed but I am sure she will go on to the other Boarding School books!

I loved Enid Blyton as a child and hoped my daughter might like it too. I bought her the CD for her 6th birthday and she loves listening to this at bedtime. She now wants to read the books too. It is a step back in time to another world but maybe Enid Blyton was right when she said 'I Know what children want'! Good stories/writing always stand the test of time.

This is the same recording as the cassette one we have owned for years, which is really good news, as there are no irritating changes and 'updates' We really enjoy these stories, funny and entertaining. This CD is FAB! x

This is an odd review - I haven't heard the CDs. In fact I haven't come across Elizabeth, the Naughtiest Girl, for nearly 60 years. I absolutely adored reading the books when I was very very young, and I was tickled that my Dad, a man not given to reading Fiction, thought they were wonderful too.

I'll arrange for my younger grandchildren to acquire the CDs, and I'll make a date to join them, and we'll listen with chuckles and giggles and ice creams and I'll go way way back (privately!) into the memory of Times Past.

Yes, Blyton couldn't Write, and her stories are full of bias and prejudice and class consciousness and covert racism, and goody goody girls, and lacrosse! But - what stories she told! And how many! Malory Towers with Darrell, the Adventure series with Bill Smugs (very grown-up, those), St Clares with the O'Sullivan twins, The Faraway Tree, kind Big Ears...

They'll go on for ever. Dear me, no time to lose.

Enjoy them. Love them.

I thought this book was terrific, it had remarkable description. It makes you want to read it again. I am looking forward to reading the next book The Naughtiest Girl Again. The print is quite small, so it is suitable for children aged 7-11. I would rate it four stars because it takes a long time to read. If I could I would read more each day, I could finish it to get on to the next book. My favourite part was when William tells Elizabeth that she can't have her pocket money. Elizabeth is a spoilt and selfish child and decides to be really naughty when she goes to boarding school. She doesn't realise that the school has monitors and they spend quite a bit of time telling her off! I won't tell you if Elizabeth decides to be kind and lovely in the end, you'll just have to read the book and find out!

I loved everything by Enid Blyton when I was little so I introduced my 7 year old to this book. She is a great reader and started the book herself however it didn't seem to grab her like it had me and I was disappointed, she preferred diary of a wimpy kid. I decided to try again but this time with me reading it to her. This meant I could enjoy the story too. Well it did work and she loved the story. I think the story flowed more when I read it as the language is dated. We both looked forward to bedtime and read it over a couple of nights. She now wants the other books. I would recommend this to the 7 to 10 age group a timeless classic which although dated has lost non of its charm.

These Enid Blyton books are just wonderful. They are so perfect for a girl, or even a boy aged about 6 upwards who is an early reader. They capture the imagination of a child (adult too) and the words, although simple they are exciting and really bring the characters to life. I can recommend any of these books as an ideal present (I bought two sets of 4 for my two grandaughters aged 6 & 7). They are just the right length, although some maybe a bit short - you just want the stories to go on and on.
As the title suggests 'Naughtiest Girl' doesn't everyone know her? I thought it was my sister that Enid was writing about (She is 60 in January).
