As the second book of the series, I think that I liked this one ever so slightly more. The children get their own farm and move in to what I consider to my dream home. Some of the things written in this book, I have never forgotten and hold close to my heart. I feel that this series of book was the most well written of all Enid Blyton's books and this one in particular I feel was written close to her own heart. The adventures the children have and the way it was written made me as a child feel l...more

I had a short period of wanting to be a farmer as a kid, and it was because of this book. Of course, I realised fairly quickly that it was a highly romanticised view of farm life and that I didn't really want to be up at 5am to milk cows, or to spend my days scraping chook droppings off the floor, but at the time it sounded very briefly wonderful - especially the chapter on working in the dairy. To this day I still have a yen to make my own butter.

Romanticised or not, it's still a great book. E...more
I got this as a gift from my Dad when I was a kid and ate it up! I remember reading it late at night and loving everything about it. I can still smell the pages and feel their thick weight in my fingers. What a great memory! Unfortunately the book is not as great as the memory. It is sickeningly upeat look at farm life in the 1940's. It did have its moments and my kids did enjoy it, but my wife and I kept looking at each other in dismay with an arch of eyebrows that meant "Oh no, here comes anot...more
One of the best Enid Blyton books I've ever read. I could just read it again and again..
Very heartwarming tale. :)
Blyton is a genius. I love her stories. They take you back to a more innocent time.
As a kid, this book made me want to live on a real farm and actually hate city life :)
I forgot the entire story. I know the book is still on my bookshelf though...

Born in 1897 in South London, Enid Mary Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. 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 editor Hugh Pollock, with whom she had tw...more
