Malory Towers…

Enid Blyton Saves the Day!

When the big bad world of being a grown up gets too much for me, I retreat under my duvet, with a glass of milk and a biscuit or seven and read Malory Towers or The St Clares series from Enid Blyton, and pretend I am eleven years old, in a universe where only hockey sticks and midnight feasts really matter…

And if things get really bad?

You’ll find me on my Mums sofa reading The Magic Faraway Tree….

    I wish I could find these books at our library. I've tried for years to find them "free"….might just make a recommendation for them to be purchased for the library system. Thanks for the reminder!

    I loved Malory Towers, especially as I went to boarding school. I'm going to see if I can get copies of these online somewhere, right now!

    oh Alison ! I just love all things Enid Blyton ~ especially the magic faraway tree and the wishing chair. Picking up vintage Enid Blyton books is a must for me on my trips to op shops or when treasure hunting. I always wanted to be Ann if the 5 series and wanted to play house when out camping and wish I could buy some fresh produce right from the farm…oh I cant sing her praises enough AND my children were drip fed Enid Blyton from the time they were big enough to sit still and listen !

    I love enid blyton, I had almost all of her books when I was a child. I used to search(with my parents) in all the charity shops, boot fares and church fares for the ones I couldnt buy in a normal bookshop. My favourite ones where the fairy omnibuses and the naughtiest girl ones, childhood heaven.
