    Remember reading Enid Blyton's stories to children at the library Immersed in the adventures of the Secret Seven or Famous Five there was captivated silence; concentrating faces and little brains sharing in the escapadesA great children's classic collection from Blyton's fertile mind the 15 book series was published between 1949 and 1963 Its easy readability and simple style were very British with I say larder box your ears and buck up freuently dotting the textThese are wonderful stories to read to convalescing children which eually absorb adults reminding them of their own distant childhoodBecome a kid again and read one

    This book is the Secret Seven Short Story Collection by Enid Blyton The collection of short stories is a bind of up of all the preuels that Enid Blyton wrote apart from 11 The Secret of the Old MillI have done a full review of this on Goodreads 55 A great introduction 2 The Humbug Adventure The children go to Mr Wills house to look through a telescope in hope to see Jupiter but they get for what they want Jack spots someone lighting a fire Will the Secret Seven stop the person before it gets out of hand? 45 I loved the read It could of been longer and the characters at the farm could have been developed and explored 3 Adventure on The Way Home On their way home from Colin's the secret seven take the short cut down the canal in which they hear shouts and screams coming from a nearby office The only place with light coming from it What do they do? Who's in trouble? It's up to the Secret seven to Investigate into it35 uite boring The secret seven failed which has never happened Could of been better in places 4 An Afternoon With The Secret SevenWhile helping out at a garden party and left on his own Peters friend Fred Hilton invites him over to go on his pony Peter leaves Scamper to guard the money After he comes back from his tea he discovers that the money has gone and so has scamper Who has took the money? 35 Not the best Pretty boring really Although I loved the different change of scenery 5 Where Are The Secret Seven?The secret seven are heading to Hallows Hill to look at the abandoned and ruined house When they get there all seems well Until George finds boxes in a room end until they are locked in a room all alone Cold and hungry How can they solve the mystery and catch the man who locked them in the room? 25 Didn't really like Far too short and we didn't see the adventure come to an end and we don't know what happened A bit disappointed 6 Hurry Secret Seven Hurry While the Secret Seven are walking through town a man on a bicycle crashes Nobody knows him or what he's doing That is until they work out who he is He works at the railway station and he is the person who open and closes the gates it is there mission to open the gates before the train crashes into it 35 A but better then the one before this one It had a bit of suspense For me the mystery was to easy to solve and was solved far too uickly Don't get me wrong I did enjoy the short stories but they went downhill in a sense They started off really good and I felt like I was watching a crime show in my head but I just lost the will to live in some of them because they were short and boring As I have always said about Enid Blyton her writing style is out of this world and I love reading it The illustrations for once I really did enjoy and I thought they supported the stories In conclusion a good book but could of been better

    A few months back my son and I made a rare visit to McDonalds for tea He ordered the obligatory Happy Meal and was chuffed to bits with a mini Enid Blyton book which happened to be The Secret of the Old Mill one of the stories in this collection He finished it in one sitting and asked he could have Secret Seven books I found this book on and it sounded perfect for him to read alone and follow the plot something he sometimes struggles with in longer books I read the stories first then Zachary read them himself at bedtime I'd then ask him to recap the story and ask him some uestions to see how much he'd understoodtaken in This worked really well as he enjoyed telling the story in his own words and I enjoyed finding hearing how he interpreted the book They are 'of their time' but there is a reason Enid Blyton books have continued to remain popular with generations of younger readers The sense of adventure and the clubhouse passwords and secrecy only adds to the appeal of these stories These are definitely a perfect introduction to the series for younger children or newly independent readers

    I have read that this series is not highly thought of by real Blytoners; the word infantile was mentioned than once in the reviews I saw I think it is certainly far from Enid Blyton's best particularly as seven is really too many for a central group of characters and the only ones with any really defined consistent characteristics are Jack and Peter but I do think the series has a deal of worth as a starter seriesThe Secret Seven is the first Enid Blyton adventure series I read to myself when I was young It serves as a great forerunner to reading alone the Five and of Adventure series as it is much lighter and easier to read and everything happens on a much smaller scaleI always used to feel slightly dissatisfied when reading the first Secret Seven book The Secret Seven as it was obviously not the beginning of the story so I would recommend that any Secret Seven read through should start with this recently published short story collection which brings the reader in at the very beginning My favourite story here is the one with the level crossing although it is a facsimile of one of Blyton's sleepy time stories

    And it's the Secret Seven capturing smugglers opening boom gates to stop trains from crashing etc However because they're short stories they skip all the inevitable first few chapters fluff of secret meetings passwords and getting annoyed with SusieThe joy of it all of course is the smile on my 6yo's face when the happy resolution arrives at the end of each tale At least in the world of Enid Blyton everything is always sorted out neatly

    I liked this book because their were many exiting stories that were short It had all types of stories such as funny stories and mysterious I recommend this book to people who want to read other secret seven books also because it talks a lot about how the secret seven started in one of the stories
