I read so many books with my children, they read a chapter, I read a chapter, so I thought I would welcome you into their world of literature too.

My six year son is absolutely in love with Enid Blyton's Adventure Series. He adores Kiki and her many wonderful sayings. He is inspired by the ideas the children in the stories come up with and has started using them in his playing.

Hearing him read these books with ease and expression is an amazing sound. The voices he does and the pace at which he r...more
These are two delightful adventure stories written by Enid Blyton. Philip and Dinah are siblings who meet Jack and Lucy Ann.Together with their pet parrot Kiki, the children embark on an adventure filled journey. Investigating mysterious boats, discovering strange activities, fire signals on cliff tops and mystery men. They make new friends - Bill Smugs and Tassie. Both the stories are really entertaining. Reminded me of the time when we as kids used to get the books of Enid and how exciting all...more

Recommends it for: Children in third to sixth grade.
Recommended to Kathie by: When I was in grade school a teacher read others in this series
Other books in Enid Blyton's Adventure series were read to my class when I was in elementary school many years ago. I remember thinking the four children had very interesting adventures without much adult supervision. I especially liked the troublesome parrot, Kiki. I purchased the eight stories in the Adventure series to read to my young grandchildren and hope they like them as well as I did when I was young.

Recommends it for: 3rd or 4th Graders
It's a pretty good book. It's about a group of 4 kids who just happen to be able to get adventures really easily. In that way, it's kind of stupid, because all sorts of things happen to them that would never happen in real life. More later, the loudspeaker at hw center just called us all to the front room to be picked up.
More the the ___ of Adventure series, a good afternoon in the sun read

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
