4.0 out of 5 stars Bought it on Kindle to read to my grandchildren, 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Five Go Adventuring Again: Book 2 (Famous Five) (Kindle Edition)
It was okay, it brought back childhood memories of reading these stories and the envy I felt as a 6 or 7 year old which was all of 60 years ago. Did children really act like that then and back even further when the stories were penned? I know they did. Taking a dog to a boarding school...I don't think so. I found myself doing more explaining about the times than I did actually reading the story which I had to admit, was hard...I understand that these kids were never from the back streets, they never would have collected shrapnel from the German bombs as a way of making the odd penny, these were enviable kids from rich families and it goes a long way to proving that rich kids were a different breed who grew up not really knowing their own families for they were always away in school somewhere fending for themselves - in a rich way of course. Next time I'll buy the Gruffalo.
