Another nostalgic remembrance. My first "Find-Outer" novel. Nothing great, but this introduced me to Enid Blyton's mysteries. I was rather attached to Fatty, as I was also somewhat portly. :D

This a story about 5 kids called the Find Outers who got the flu and are on christmas vacation. They complain that they can't solve mysteries because they have the flu. When they get better they find out their neighbor, Mr. Fellows, house is trashed and there is nobody there to be found. Mr.Goon, a police officer, hates the kids because they steal his job every mystery. Witnesses say that Mr.Fellows ran out carrying a bundle in his hand, and the robber sto

The rating reflects my opinion as a child rather than what I would think of it reading it first time as an adult. It's hard for me to rate it now, anyway, because objectively I can see the writing isn't great, but subjectively I'm filled with lots of nostalgia reading these books, which makes everything seem cute. Nevertheless, I do think that Blyton's books are the kind of children books that most adults wouldn't enjoy, unless, like me, they've read them first as kids.

Although these books have

(Written as a 10 year old - again!) I've discovered the secret of increasing the number of books on my read list - read children's books! I must have read this as a child but I don't remember it. Having a cook, maid, gardener etc makes being a parent and looking after a house sound so much easier! I loved the way the children worked together and worked out the mystery - and I found myself wanting to finish the book to find out what did happen. I hope my niece has more of this series on her books ...more

De vijf detectives en hun hond zitten midden in een mysterie zonder dat ze het beseffen. Buster speelt wel een heel bijzondere rol. Een verhaal vol actie waarbij het lang onduidelijk blijft wat eigenlijk de bedoeling is. Mysterieus, een beetje griezelig zelfs.

I was hoping to give this one more than two stars, especially when I reached about the halfway point and the Find-Outers weren't puzzling over the most obvious clues in the world, as they usually do. But then, that's because the whole answer is so obscure that the reader doesn't have a hope of getting everything, the children are still extraordinarily dense about the aspects that are gettable. The writing is even lazier than usual, and once again I felt that Fatty went much too far in antagonisi ...more

I really felt like reading another Enid book after yesterday, and these are I think the second under appreciated series of her books. Fatty, Bets, Larry, Daisy and Pip stare in this one, along with Buster the Scottie dog. The police man Goon is always there, bumbling along and making it easy for the oh so smart kids to solve the mystery every time. There's a few laughs and a bit of fun, lovely food described, what's not to love about an Enid Blyton book?

One either likes Enid Blyton or not. I like the simplicity of the plot, the endearing characters and the overt social morals. This is as good as the others.

Ei mitään uutta sanottavaa, paitsi että tässä salaisuus oli pilkottu kahteen osaan niin, ettei sitä voinut arvata etukäteen.

Bedtime book for my 8 + 10 year old boys. Given it was written in the 1940s, it has aged well, more or less

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 edito
