Fantastic Famous Five!,
This review is from: Famous Five (21 book set) (Paperback)
This box set is stunning! All 21 books together in one set. All the books have brilliant artwork depicting the Famous Five on the covers and i really couldn't be happier with my purchase. Having grown up with the famous five it's the perfect set to pass down to the generations to come, so they can follow George, Richard, Julian, Anne and Timothy's adventures :) Highly recommended!

Would just like to know if these are a reprint of the originals or the "Updated" versions, growing up with the famous five you would know the difference, the new updated versions; "To this end the books have been revised line by line, leaving the plots intact but cutting many of the old-fashioned expressions, such as "golly", "rather" and "awfully", and replacing numerous other words: "Mother" and "Daddy" with "Mum" and "Dad", "bathing" with "swimming", "jersey" with "jumper" and so on."
I liked the originals, I liked the way they spoke, and I want a complete set of those for when I do have children before the revised version takes over.

"Richard"? You mean Dick?
