This is again a story set in an exotic locale - the imaginary country of baronia. It had interesting characters like the blind sheepherd. The first hald was quite exciting creating mystery about the secret forest. But second half kind of failed to live up to the expectations. The human interactions is low in this series and no strong memorable character. Enid Blyton's stength is not mystery or intrigue to be be able to make a book stand on that alone. Somehow this series is important in the sens ...more

This is a vast improvement on the previous book in the series, as the five children have their individual characteristics back, and the Killimooin Mountains are a well realised and exciting setting for an adventure.

I was worried at one point that the climax of the story was not going to live up to the quite excellent build-up, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that Mike, Jack and Paul made a pleasingly heroic and intrepid rescue band as they entered the Secret Forest.
The only Secret book I read once as a child, enjoyable but the girls were left out of most of the adventure which was disappointing!
Another Enid Blyton book, although I've not had much to do with this series. It was alright, but the story was pretty wild and out there compared to some other adventures. I'd have to check out the rest of this series to get a good grasp on what's happening.

A good story, but disappointed that the girls were completely left out of the adventures this time.

This was an awesome book........when Paul takes his frnds Mike, Jack, Nora and Peggy to his land Baronia they are enormously excited.It was all about mountains and robbers so i really liked it.....

The first Enid Blyton book I ever read, at the age of about 8 or 9 or so, and one of her best, thoguh reading it again as an adult the descriptions of food seem to be a bit overdone.
