Read full description of the books:
Another less than inspiring book title from Enid. If all I had to go on was the title, you couldn't pay me to read this book. As I'm firmly entrenched in this series at this point, though, I bravely march onwards...
In this volume, the Five find themselves saddled with an initially unwelcome house guest. The daughter of one of Uncle Quentin's scientist friends has been targeted by kidnappers by a group of shady individuals who are after Quentin & Co's research secrets. To hide the girl, whose name is Berta, she has been sent to England from her native USA to be looked after by our heroes.
In order to better disguise her, our protagonists decide to cut Berta's hair short and dress her like a boy. By my count, this now makes four female characters in this series who dress like and are mistaken for boys (if you're keeping track, the other three are George/Georgina, Jo/Josephine and Henry/Henrietta). I'm starting to suspect old Enid may have had... issues...
To be honest, it's only the insertion of the American characters (Berta and her father) that keep this instalment interesting. Other than them, this is very much Famous Five by numbers. It's not bad per se but the formula is peeking through the dressing in places.
Or possibly it's a Shakespearian tour de force and I was too tired from driving to really appreciate it.

Read information about the authorEnid Mary Blyton (1897 - 1968) was an English author of children's books.
Born in South London, Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to editor Hugh Pollock, with whom she had two daughters. This marriage ended in divorce, and Blyton remarried in 1943, to surgeon Kenneth Fraser Darrell Waters. She died in 1968, one year after her second husband.
Blyton was a prolific author of children's books, who penned an estimated 800 books over about 40 years. Her stories were often either children's adventure and mystery stories, or fantasies involving magic. Notable series include: The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Five Find-Outers, Noddy, The Wishing Chair, Mallory Towers, and St. Clare's.
According to the Index Translationum, Blyton was the fifth most popular author in the world in 2007, coming after Lenin but ahead of Shakespeare.
AKA Ένιντ Μπλάιτον (Greek).
