The Lovereading4Kids comment
The summer holidays are made for reading Enid Blyton; no writer better understands the sheer pleasure of being out of school with empty days stretching ahead. There are all sorts of stories in this collection, lots of pixies and magic, but stories of ordinary life too, most often featuring kind, generous children getting their reward. Delicious food, of course, features in nearly every one! Children devour Blyton’s stories today with as much delight as they ever have, and this bright, attractive book is perfect summer reading. ~ Andrea Reece
