I remember reading The Twins at St.Clare's a few years ago. Although it's been quite a while I still remember clearly how this book made me feel. This is one of the first books I read which made me want to read more and more different types of books. I remember the twins who went to boarding school and the different experiences they had and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It's the only book I've read in the series and I would love to read the rest and kind of go down memory lane of the things I used to...more

I was never a huge fan of the St Clares books I had read the forth and the sixth when I was younger and believed Enid Blyton was the best author ever and constantly read and re-read Malory Towers, The Famous Five and Secret Seven etc...

I have read the whole series once and can't wait to finish some books so I can read it again. I started the series when I turned nine and finished it in the later 10's. It still appeals two years later. Lovely old fashion fun.

I really liked this book because of the setting, and the characters. This book is about a pair of twins who go to a new boarding school, and play tricks on teacher, have rivalries, and have lots of fun. If you liked the Malory Towers series, I would highly recommend this book and series.

Loved it. It's all that you expect from Enid Blyton: midnight feasts, bad girls who reform (and some who don't), French teachers with short tempers, kind headmistress, and a good range of well drawn characters.
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...moreMore about Enid Blyton...
