Iako više volim onu famoznu petorku, ni ovih sedam nije loše. Simpa za odmor od ozbiljnijih knjiga!

This book is about a group of children called the "Secret Seven" who are a group of children who likes to solve mysteries in their village.

It was during one summer vacation when the Secret Seven were very bored and had nothing to do. So they decided to go into the woods and build a treehouse to stay in. All of the members were having fun and relaxing in the treehouse. They brought snacks and games from home to eat and play all day long.

One day, Pam, one of the Secret Seven members decided to le

*Well Done Secret Seven*
Wow! The Secret Society is really doing some great job. Hats off! This one was a lot better than its previous counterpart. The plot is something like this. As the summer heat approaches, the secret seven build a fanciful treehouse to escape into pleasing shades and coolness with drinks and biscuits. The secret society soon discovers a strange boy along with his cat who trespasses into their domination and they soon get to know about the boys Uncle, who

This title is #3 of 15 novels in the Secret Seven Series, originally published in the late 1940's and 50's. I would categorize it as a cozy English mystery for kids. Many reviewers of the English version have remarked on how dated it seems. Of course the Brisitsh characters and their circumstances are not those of 21st century American culture. However, I tend to agree with one of the reviewers who remarked that since she herself (as a child reader) hadn't noticed the disparities, she doubted mo ...more

Revisiting the books of my youth out of a feeling of nostalgia! I loved Enid Blyton when I was younger and can't wait to re-read these with my own children.

The Secret Seven have a new meeting place - a tree house! But someone else is secretly using it too! The gang are furious that someone has found their hide-out and is pinching their food and goodies, but when they find out that the intruder is in big trouble and needs their help, The Secret Seven are on the job to crack the cryptic case and help this mysterious intruder.

I, for one, thought this book was much better than the first two I read, just because of the way in which the story wasn't rus

The Secret Seven build a tree house
27 April 2013

Another short Enid Blyton mystery where the Secret Seven manage to prevent some bad people from ruining somebody's lovely day. However it takes about half of the book for the adventure to start because the first half of the book has them building a tree house because the shed in which they meet in is a little too hot. However, it always makes me cringe when English authors talk about hot days in England because they are pretty much non-existent, i

Having enjoyed Enid Blyton's books as a child, I thought I would re read one of them. This book is the third in the series and tells the story of the Secret Seven having yet another adventure. In this book, they encounter a young boy, Jeff, who tells them that he has overheard a criminal plan. The Secret Seven must act to stop this plan, and save the boy.

I quite enjoyed reading this book, as it is written in short chapters and it is quite fast paced. I feel it would be good for individual readi

Another thing I found on the shelves at home, my mother's childhood copy, this time. A pleasantly quick and easy read, I recall that when I was young I preferred the Famous Five, because their adventures were more exciting, and that memory seems fair, although this is rather lovely. A world in which small children wander off into the woods in the centre of the night is always surprising these days, but the story is solid as ever, and the adventure genuinely rather compelling in this case. I thin

This is an enjoyable and (mostly) fair mystery. It's a bit sentimental; some people might call it manipulative.

When their shed gets too hot, the Secret Seven decide to meet elsewhere. They find a tree in a nearby wood, and use wooden planks to create a transient tree house that they disassemble after each meeting. But their meeting place is found by a young boy who has an injured kitten and who is in trouble....

The copy I read was a "Children's Large Print" edition, ISBN 0-7540-6027-6, with 98 p

Enid Blyton is an amazing childrens author, bestselling in the
world. Although almost undiscovered by Americans.

This series (The Secret Seven) Features 7 children who form a
backyard club. They love to have meetings with Secret
Passwords, etc. Soon, they begin to fall into mysteries. This
series is for the younger reader than the other series Enid
Blyton wrote for children. 8-10 years old maybe.
Great reading. introduce your children to Enid Blyton today!

The mystery/adventure in this one is not very interesting. The best part of the book is when the gang builds a treehouse. The complete of lack of actual detective skills in the Secret Seven is beginning to annoy me slightly - they need to get Hercule Poirot or Sherlock Holmes in to give them a talk so that they're no longer completely reliant on coincidences to solve their mysteries.

This is one of my favourite secret seven books, although I thought it was abit strange that Enid Blyton decided that the Secret Seven would be fans of the famous five and said how great they were because it seemed a bit weird that she was writing that. However this doesn't make the book any less enjoyable.

How can you not adore a writer that teaches children to behave well, to tell the truth and to work for the good of society. I love this book and all of Enid Blyton's stories. Yes, it does have traces of class superiority and obvious racism, but, the values are of that age, and there is an innocence in the stories that come across through the years.

Secret Seven no.3, in which the kids actually do have to do a bit of sleuthing.

Oh yeah, and their parents let them stay up to go on a crime sting with the local cops. How awesome was childhood in Enid Blyton books?

This book was rather interesting that I could read it in less than an hour.I somehow occasionally hope that I could have created such a group so that the 'group' may fing lots of fun solving mysteries by connecting the clues which we are sure of.
