What a kick to be able to buy and read the seminal influence of my childhood. It lacks literary merit now that I am pushing sixty but the story takes me back half a century to a time I believed in treasure troves and the decency and pluck it took to find them. I love electronic books and my phone Kindle. My ability to buy Enid Blyton half a century away from my young reading days is one reason why.
It's my husband's childhood favorite series, I never heard of it before. He read it to us, and I understood how he could fall in love with it as a young child. This is a good adventure book for boys.
