still fantastic a second time round
on 25 March 2008
I have just read this story to my 5 year old and he has enjoyed every minute of it.He now wants me to read him the rest of the series, most of which i still have from when i was a child. Although the books may seem a little old fashioned [i dont think many people have a supper time bell any more], this doesnt spoil the story at all and if any questions are asked, then it is a great opportunity to teach them a little social history. I also think its good for children to read what are now classic stories and include the kind of mystery, adventure and interesting characters that children love. There are a lot of great childrens books available and written by more recent authors but i think it would be a shame not to include some of the great authors such as Enid Blyton as they still hold the magic that they did when they were first written.
