As we meet twelve year old Darrell Rivers, so we see she is getting prepared to come to London to catch the school train to her first term at Malory Towers, rather like Harry Potter as he arrives at King’s Cross for the Hogwart’s Express in more recent times. As one of the new arrivals at the school so we read of her settling in, trying to control her temper, and make new friends. As you would expect in a school story, so we have numerous happenings as we see bullying, what was then called a pash developing, and other incidents, such as illness, lying and envy, as well as comedy.
What makes this work is of course Enid Blyton’s writing, and although she has come in for a bit of a bashing over the years, it cannot be denied that she wrote stories for children that they enjoyed, and still do. I must admit that I was and still am a Famous Five fan and being male this series of books were not read by me growing up, but reading this one now even at my age, I did find this quite entertaining. By the end of this though your child should know what is meant by that old slang usage of Wizard, but do not blame me if you have your little girl walking around and saying it. Young girls should lap this up, and I am sure that there are many adults who will want to read this and remember their own younger days.
Anyg way i definitely definitely recommend this book to read how where when ever you L I K E !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
