THE FAMOUS FIVE

THE BEST FOR A FIRST READ!

Enid’s Famous Five books featuring Julian, Dick, George and Anne and Timmy the dog, were the catalyst which encouraged me to start reading more than 50 years ago. Thank you, Enid. The BBC, many public libraries, local authorities and alleged educational experts have been completely wrong about the worth of the Blyton works. I can remember having quite a lot of difficulty obtaining the original books as so many places would not stock them. The stories are great to read for their simplicity and straightforwardness.

When one did find copies of the book they were quite expensive all those years ago but great to own. I loved the letter on the back cover from Enid in some of the editions, and also the physical appearance of the book which I treasured as a youngster with the way the books were produced then which made them somehow much easier to read.

It’s a delight to read the stories again in middle age although recent editing has diminished some of the memories I have of the original editions and words used then (but I am now getting old).

Never mind… these books remain one of my best friends for life: they began my own reading adventure so do read these special adventures for yourselves.

THE FAMOUS FIVE: THE BEST FOR A FIRST READ!

Enid’s Famous Five books featuring Julian, Dick, George and Anne and Timmy the dog, were the catalyst which encouraged me to start reading more than 50 years ago. So, thank you, Enid for starting me off!

Unfortunately, the BBC, and many public libraries and local authorities, and alleged educational experts have been completely wrong about the worth of the Blyton works as an aid to learning. I can remember having much difficulty obtaining the original books because so many places would not stock them. The stories remain great to read for their simplicity and straightforwardness.

When one did find copies of the book they were quite expensive all those years ago but a pleasure to own. I loved the personal letter on the back cover from Enid in some of the earlier editions. Also, it was the physical appearance of the book which I treasured as a youngster with the way the books were produced then which made them somehow much easier to read because of the format.

And so it’s a delight to read the stories again in middle age. Recent editing of the books, allegedly to bring them up to date and remove “offending” material has diminished some of the memories I have of the original editions and words used then (but I am now getting old).

Never mind… these books remain one of my best friends for life: they began my own reading adventure so do read these special adventures for yourselves and make up your own minds.

Ich kann auch jedem Erwachsenen der sich mit der Englischen Sprache beschäftigen möchte dieses Buch empfehlen. Es ist leich und gut verständlich, erweckt das gleiche Abenteuerfeeling wie in der Kindheit und man fiebert richtig mit. Mir ist es sehr schwer gefallen das Buch phasenweise aus der Hand legen zu müssen. Ich hab keine 2 Wochen benötigt

...ist eine gute Übung für das "Anlesen" von gutem Englisch - vor allem weil es sich ja um vielgeliebte Kinderbücher handelt, deren Inhalt zumindest noch einen gewissen Realitätsbezug aufweist.
