When I was younger, my parents thought the biggest threat of punishment they could make was "I'll send you off to boarding school!" Thanks to the Malory Towers (and St. Clare's) series, this threat had absolutely no weight. I thought boarding school sounded "smashing" what with all the midnight feasts, lacrosse matches and dancing in the common room to the wireless.

Malory Towers was the first school series I read and I enjoyed it. I felt like all the characters were fully developed and had moti

The Malory towers series by Enid Blyton follows a group of girls as they go through boarding school. The main character darrel who is determined to be brilliant at school is sidetracked my mischievous girls who get her into all sorts of trouble. The books, written I the 1940s/50s may seem dated but I think are classic and can still be enjoyed by girls today. They paint a good picture of what life would have been like and could be used alongside history lessons to gain some social context, or to ...more
Omg! Memories of the past :O ... This is the first series I have ever read in my life. I started reading this when I was nine or ten I think. Along with Famous Five LOL. I was obsessed with these books and I used to carry then EVERYWHERE I went. I just feel in love with the setting Blyton painted throughout, it was just beautiful. Made me feel like I actually wanted to go to a boarding school. A complete contrast to the books I'm actually reading now aha
Dreamed about studying in a school like Malory Towers...hmm...
Most kids dread boarding school right? And I'm guessing even here in Sri Lanka not many of us would want to leave the comfort of our own friends and family , Malory Towers showed me another world when it came to Boarding school, Darrel the main protagonist learns not just in the classroom but in the field, the pool and on stage..high school was a whole other experience for was never just all work, there were dances, matches, stage dramas etc..Gwendoline would be my favourite "bimbo" cha ...more
Malory Towers and Back to Malory Towers, by Enid Blyton. This was the full 6 books in the series published in 2 volumes so I'm counting it as 2 instead because they were so quick to read. I spotted them second hand and knew they'd be coming up on the Children's Book Challenge at some point, so got them while I could. I was sorting out some stuff on my bookshelves yesterday, and suddenly decided to just read a few pages, in preference to the books I was already part way through (I realised this m ...more

The Malory Towers series was my FAVOURITE book when I was young. I remember wishing I was there and that my parents would ship me off to Boarding School 'cos it seemed like so much fun. The bonds between teh girls and the adventures. There was never a dull moment and to top it off, it was beautifully written. This book brings me nothing but warm memories and I will love it FOREVER. =)
Excellent series by an author who wrote over 700 books for kids of different ages. She wrote a couple of all-girls boarding school series, and this one is my favorite. If you're looking for books to give to younger kids, she wrote some great ones to choose from -- fantasy books, realistic fiction, and books that teach you about nature.
awesome book took me two days to finish it but i keep reading it over and over again

I read this series SO long ago that I can't give a proper review without tracking them down and reading again, but my 10 year old self says they deserve at least four stars, if not five.

The reason I bother to mention them here is that I remembered how much I loved them long after I'd forgotten the name of the series and the author. I thought about them from time to time over the years and wished I could remember the name. I was delighted to see them mentioned recently on an online book discussio

It was the book we lived by in boarding school. The mid-night feasts was its best gift to us.
P.S.- We were caught :P
Loved it reading almost two decades ago! It was amazing transforming me to the world of Enid Blyton :)
I loved this book so much and i do wish i could go to boarding school like darrel shes so lucky

Sorry to admit to it now but there was a part of me, as a child that wanted to go to boarding school. The Malory Towers books likely played a significant part in that. The school of Malory Towers with it's swimming pool, located on the Cornish seaside was strictly girls only. Even still, I remember the characters and the things that the girls in the book would get up to, especially Alicia Johns. The central character of the books is Darrell Rivers and you are taken along with her on her journey

I remember when I first read this Malory Towers series. I was eight/nine years old. Having previously read all The Famous Five series, which are centred around solving 'mysteries' during summer holidays, I always thought living in English countryside as well as studying in English boarding school are totally awesome. I even begged my mum to send me to English boarding school so I can play lacrosse, have a kick-arse midnight party and learn french, though at the end she never send me to an Englis ...more

i'd have to say that this book (and also st.clare's) has influenced me more than i realised. i started reading this when I was ten or eleven, along with the famous five series, and was so impressed with the story. this book (and the whole series) is one of the reason why i went to boarding school, lol.

Enid Blyton..

pengarang yang berhasil melengkapi masa kecil gwe.. :)
ya he completed my childhood with his books..

mulai dari Serial Malory Towers, St. Clare, The O' Sullivan Twins, Famous Five, The Naughtiest Girl, dan cerita2 lepas lainnya..

Big thanks to my mom who had teached me to love reading.. and also introduced me to Enid Blyton..

Anyway, I used to have the complete serials, but now, i don't have them anymore.. Haa.. pengen baca Buku2 ini lagi..

I reread for the second time in 2 years. I was once again enlightened and entertained with Enid Blyton's wonderful writing. This book was a simple story about the chaos and fun in a boarding school. The book seems like a revision of the boarding school series St.Claires also by Enid Blyton but including better characters and story though it still had a familiar vibe. All in all I found the book a wonderful classic and worth reading again.

A good book for children. Or to know how a boarding school feels. I liked the book but there were some places where the characters felt stupid[i guess that has more to do with me grown out of that age/phase]. all in all a good read but children/teens will enjoy it more
this is the book I grew up with... wonderful dorm-school story, giving me dreams about living as an English girl... Love all 6 of the series, and I will keep on reading them over and over again, and I swear I'll make my children read them too.
So in my 9th grade I was stuck at my grandma's in Bhubaneswar for two months and all they had to read were novels for girls (my cousin was 9 then). I had no choice! Judge me all you want but I can recollect liking the series back then :P

I love the Malory Towers series very much, but I still think Blyton was very blunt in the points she wanted to get across and could have elaborated a little bit more. Nonetheless, Enid Blyton is a good author for children's books.
Absolutely love the Malory Towers books, always have done and probably the first proper books I ever read. Have a set ready for when my toddler is able to read as I know she will love them as much as I did.
This book is about a girl at boarding school. She and her friends prank their teachers, play games, have parties in the middle of the night, and more. There are five (i think) sequels.
I've read this so many times over the past fourteen or so years that it's falling to bits. I'm obsessively careful with my books, so this one is by far the most abused of them all.

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
