After passing their school certificate last term Darrell and the girls are given the task of organising the school pantomime. Darrell is chosen to write the script for Cinderella and shows she has a gift for writing. Gwendolyn and new girl Maureen are both desperate to be cast as Cinderella and are shocked when quiet, timid Mary-Lou is given the role instead.

Meanwhile older girls Moira and Catherine have to retake the fifth form again. Moira is given the role of Director and is very overzealous.

Finally Darrell discovers her 'gift'- a gift for writing. The Fifth are putting on a play for the end of term festivities, and Darrell is asked to do the writing. Irene is doing the music, Mavis is helping with the singing, Belinda with design, and Alicia has a major part. Both Gwen and a new girl Maureen fancy themselves as Cinderella- but who will the Fifth pick to fill the role? Someone's sending spiteful letters to the Fifth's head girl Moira, but she's made so many enemies that no one knows ...more

Won this one in a writing competition, and the first time I read this, I found it very good. But the second time, it kind of bothered me how the girls seemed to bully and single out this other girl of their class. That was my main issue with this book. Other than that, it was nice and kind of interesting, though it did got a little boring from time to time.

It's Christmas. I'm at the family home with an infant who doesn't really do sleeping. Time to off her to Granny and Grandad as I hide somewhere with a cup of tea and fiction from my childhood.

Oh Enid Blyton, you've got a lot to answer for.
School was not like Malory Towers or St. Clare's. It was shit.
The wood next door to us was entirely devoid of the following: gnomes, pixies, brownies, elves, witches, wizards, small magical creatures, large magical creatures, magical flora and fauna, general m

When you asks someone their favourite Enid Blyton school story, two times out of three they will name In the Fifth at Malory Towers (1950). There's a magic to it, even coming right near the end of a popular series.

The girls are putting on a school pantomime, and there is drama offstage more than off. Vain competition for the role of Cinderella between the fluffy Gwendoline Mary and her even more ghastly mirror image Maureen; clashes of power between the uncooperative but brilliant Alicia and the

Well,I would like to recommend this book to all Primary 5 pupils to read.

I must hand it to Gwendoline! Imagine someone dresseed in curtains parading around school reciting Juliet's lines! This one has to be the best book in the Malory Towers Series!

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.

Ada tiga anak baru, Maureen, Catherine, dan Moira si pemarah dan keras kepala. Dua diantara mereka adalah anak yang tinggal kelas di kelas lima.

Maureen: sekolahnya ditutup karena kepala sekolahnya meninggal dunia, dia terlalu banyak bicara, sifatnya mirip sekali dengan Gwendoline, suka menyombongkan diri.

Catherine Gray: ia terlalu alim, tidak pernah berkata buruk tentang orang lain, suka melakukan apa saja bagi siapa saja sampai-sampai dijuluki

Buku kelima dari Malory Towers.

Darrell sudah di kelas lima. Tambah teman baru bernama Moira Linton & "Santa" Chaterine, dan Maureen Little.

Moira Linton dan Chaterine merupakan anak-anak kelas 5 lama yang terpaksa harus mengulang, sedang Maureen harus pindah sekolah karena sekolah lamanya terbakar habis (Mazeley yang diucapkan secara salah oleh Madame Dupont menjadi Measley ^^, dan akhirnya populer di kalangan anak-anak dengan nama itu)

Di kelas ini, anak-anak diberi kesempatan untuk memanggun
This book had a huge impact on my thirteen-year old stupid self who could be fooled into thinking that the world is a kind and nice place. It's the fifth book in the Malory Towers series and I was a bit reluctant about reading it because I hadn't read any earlier parts but it turned out there was no need to. I couldn't get them, anyway, so I had no choice.

This book is about a girl's boarding school in England and all the fun part about it, from cheating the rules, pulling pranks, eating exotic

Senang rasanya bisa sampai juga ke buku ke lima. Sebenarnya untuk saya sangat penuh perjuangan. Saya lambat sekali membaca padahal untuk buku ringan yang satu bukunya hanya memiliki 250an halaman.

Baiklah, langsung saja. Buku ini bercerita juga tentang adik Darrel yang pada tahun ini masuk juga ke Malory Towers. Felicity masuk di kelas satu dan Darrel di kelas lima. Darrel menjadi ketua kelas. Pada buku ini saya belajar untuk bersikap asertif. Ketika kita tidak senang dengan sikap orang lain ata

The Malory Towers series is not my favorite school series but this book may be one of the best in the series: it has a well unified plot centered on the end-of-term pantomime written by Darrell. Working together presents many pitfalls, as Head girl Moira insists on getting her own way in producing the pantomime, and the universally hated Gwendoline Mary and her tag-along (and carbon copy)Maureen are chagrined to be relegated to parts in the chorus, when they had each hoped to be Cinderella. As u ...more

It's odd that most people say that children these days grow up too soon in being exposed to all sorts of adult influences and mores perhaps before they are ready for them, yet, compared to the girls in these books, they are actually given very little responsibility at many schools. Our team captains are seldom consulted on, let alone left to decide, who will represent the school; and even in schools I've worked at with a Head girl/Head Boy/Form captains etc. their role has been more nominal and ...more

I loved the school details - scolding friends about not writing during the holidays (I feel old that I remember that now that nobody writes letters or postcards anymore), the excitement over the School Cert results, the discovery of the new classroom for the new form, Bill coming to school on horseback (I WISH) the lacrosse match and the pantomine which was decently described. Blyton's strength isn't in description and that was a good effort for her. Darrell becoming head of Games and then revea ...more

Darrel sudah duduk di kelas lima lho sekarang. Selain ada anak baru, juga ada anak-anak yang tinggal kelas seperti Moira dan Catherine. Yang paling lucu dari buku ini menurut saya adalah kehadiran anak baru bernama Maureen yang fisik dan sifatnya mirip dengan Gwen, sehingga banyak orang yang setuju kalau mereka pantas disebut sebagai anak kembar. Gwen yang merasa Maureen merupakan sosok yang menyebalkan tidak pernah sadar jika memang seperti itulah dirinya. Dan apakah Gwen akan segera sadar deng ...more

I just finished rereading this (this time in English, yay! I've wanted to do this for so long).

This is one of my favorite books in the Malory Towers series. I was mesmerized by the pantomime that the girls produced--imagining the elegant stage, the gorgeous costumes, the charming lyrics, the enchanting music, the soaring voices! I can just see it in my mind.

I also liked that the story has one central plot--the production of the pantomime, with all its conflict--and all other little plots are wo

A colecção Quatro Torres aproxima-se do fim, sendo este o penúltimo livro da colecção.
Diana e as amigas passam para o quinto ano, enquanto que Felicidade e Júlia continuam no primeiro (cá está a tal dúvida sobre os períodos e anos. Porquê não andam todas a par?).
No entanto, Corina (que no livro anterior era Constança) permanece no 4ºano, pois chumbou no exame, enquanto que Rute passou para o 5º, e onde tem a possibilidade de ser ela própria e não viver à sombra da irmã.

Another year gone by at Malory towers - and how they go by quickly, they are but years to us avid readers. The characters have so developed from the first book and yet, till now, I had not realised. Although I look forward to reading about their last year, I also dread the last page, for I know I wish I could carry on reading far beyond it. Here we go - on to last term at Malory towers! As always, thankyou once more Enid Blyton! What a way to spend new years day - I could not think of a better o ...more

Quinto libro de Torres de Malory, en donde Darren ya es una jovencita que queda fuera de las bromas y juegos del principio de la saga. Lo bonito de la serie es que el personaje mismo va entrando en el papel de adulto poco a poco. Sabe que durante los primeros años le esta permitido hacer bromas y hacer perder la paciencia a sus maestros, pero que entrando ya en los últimos años se espera de ella que se comporte más como una jovencita seria y que su misión al mismo tiempo es servir de ejemplo a l ...more
I bought several of the Malory Towers books during a recent trip because I enjoyed girls school stories as a child and these are not available in the U.S.

Most were enjoyable, but this one bothered me. A new girl is crying on her first night, and Darrell (the main character throughout the series) tells her to get over being sensitive because she (Darrell) can't stand the sniffling. Later, as the new girl is characterized as being too egotistical and not able to fit in, the other girls make a plan
Another instalment in the Malory Towers series, and these books get better as the girls become firmer friends and grow up. Tasked with developing their own Christmas entertainment, the term is not without its challenges and fallings out as girls get sat on for their airs and graces and others are seen to be having favouritism bestowed upon them. I'm a little sad that there is only one more instalment in this series to go as the characters have grabbed you enough by now that you feel like they ar ...more
buku kelima ini buku yg plg aku suka..

persiapan buat pertunjukan akhir semester, pantomim yg ditulis aleh darrell, dibantu sally, irene yg bikin musiknya, janet yg bikin kostumnya, belinda yg bikin panggung sampe kereta kencana, mavis yg menyanyi dan melatih paduan suaranya, alicia si raja setan..

walau terganggu dengan "pelajaran" yg mereka kasih ke maureen, menurut aku mah terlalu kejam :p

wah tp lelucon yg dilakukan mam'zelle, hwahahhaha ga kbayang seorang guru ngelakuin itu *ngakak*

I think this is Girl's (7yo) favorite so far in the Malory towers books. I enjoyed reading it to her too. She is learning all about reading with expression, and using different voices for characters, so we had lots of fun making up appropriate voices for each character. Girl has Asperger's, so the description of social interactions, behaviours, and facial expressions in all the MT books has been invaluable for her, but this one even more so than the rest, and the cross age interactions along wit ...more

I should never have re read these, as an adult, I can't bear them. I have one more to go so I'll finish the series and take them down to the charity shop, but it's all so black and white with the characters, one character through out has been lambasted as no good, she'll never change, but she's a child and no member of staff has reached out at all to her, she's just been given up on.

It drives me mad that all the adults think the same as the children in this series.... aren't teachers meant to sh

As miúdas estão cada vez mais crescidas e por isso vão ter a responsabilidade de elaborar uma peça de teatro para a festa de Natal. Claro que vai haver complicações, discussões, etc, etc. Mas também revelações de várias partes envolvidas por causa disso e de outros acontecimentos durante o período.
E a querida (not!) Benedita Maria vai ter alguém que a vai deixar a pensar... e há uma professora que vai dar o devido troco às suas alunas. :)

After an insipid fourth book, the pace quickly picks up again with In the Fifth. New girls Moira, Maureen and Catherine are all a delight to read, while the pantomime provides a nice backdrop to the normal Malory Towers adventures. You've got to feel a bit sorry for Gwen though. Fat AND spotty? No wonder everyone hates her. Also she's a bitch, but don't forget, spotty girls don't get to be Cinderella!

She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to edito

“Alicia was white. ‘I’m not performing any more tonight,’ she said, in a cold and angry voice. ‘You’re quite stealing the performance yourself, aren’t you, Moira? Wonderful demon queen you’d make, with that look on your face!’ It was so exactly what Moira did look like that there were quite a lot of guffaws. Alicia walked off the stage. Darrell was petrified. Sally took charge.” 0 likes
“Of course, you will be missing your old school – what name is it, now – ah, yes – your Measley Manor, is it not?’ A shout of laughter deafened her. ‘Oh, Mam’zelle – you’re priceless!’ almost wept Belinda. ‘You always hit the nail on the head!’ ‘The nail? What nail?’ asked Mam’zelle, looking all round as if she expected to see a nail suspended in the air somewhere. ‘I have hit nothing. Do not tease me now. It is too hot!’ She turned to Maureen again. ‘They interrupt their kind old Mam’zelle,’ she said, smiling down at the fluffy-haired Maureen. ‘I was asking you about your lovely Measley Manor.’ This time it was too much. Maureen’s look of offended disgust with Mam’zelle and with the laughing girls made them roll on the grass in an agony of mirth. Mam’zelle was astonished. What had she said that was so funny? ‘All I ask is about this lovely . . .’ she began again, in bewilderment. Nobody stopped laughing. Maureen got up and walked off in a huff.” -1 likes
