The Secret Seven help a family in trouble
28 April 2015

This is another one of those feel good Secret Seven stories where a poor unfortunate, namely a lady that lives in an old shack and makes ginger bread biscuits for the local fair, has her house burnt down. In response the Secret Seven step in to help her and her family get back onto their feet. However, a Secret Seven story would not be a Secret Seven story without a mystery to be solved, and in this one it involves a stolen violin, most like

*Puzzle for Secret Seven*
Enid Blyton has begun to explore carious forms of mystery and builds up good suspense in this particular novel. This was a seemingly different story as compared to others. I like the way how Enid Blyton had taken her writing skills to a very new level and of almost feels as if you are reading Children's Sherlock Holmes. He writing is simple as always with a steady plotline. Another minor character explored here is Binkie, who's Susie's friend and they

Buku pertama dari seri Sapta Siaga yang selesai saya baca. Saya masih membuka buku Serikat Sapta Siaga, yang tidak selesai-selesai karena boring bacanya :(

Tapi setidaknya yang ini berhasil saya selesaikan dan cukup puas. Ternyata buku Sapta Siaga cocok untuk bacaan anak yang baru mulai membaca novel. Lebih karena buku tidak terlalu tebal, tokohnya pun masih kanak-kanak, dan aktivitas mereka masih aktivitas keseharian.. yang menimbulkan mini adventure gethooo...

This is a very typical Secret Seven adventure in many ways, which ticks along at the usual pace and follows the usual formula. However, there are definite signs of Enid Blyton's encroaching dementia creeping in for the first time in this series. Also, the Secret Seven have really earned their stripes as the world's least skilled detectives, as not one of them realised that Benny was blind after interacting with him several times.

Another enjoyable and fair mystery. I think this must be a re-reading for me, because I knew the solution immediately. On the plus side, it has some lovely sentimental touches.

Back cover blurb: "The Seven see a house burn down--then they witness the theft of a valuable violin! Are the two incidents connected?"

ISBN 0-7540-7800-0, 139 pages (the last of which has only 2 lines).

Yet another mystery for the Secret Seven.

I felt quite pleased with myself for solving the mystery almost straight away, then I remembered it was a children's book - oh well!

A group of children investigate a theft / mystery.

I thought this book had a good story, the writing felt a bit dated but children will probably really enjoy it.
