This typical Blyton romp starts with four children and their friend, Prince Paul of Baronia, tucking into a calorific tea (buttered toast, hot scones, home-made eclairs and a huge chocolate sponge cake). Their mother (unusually for Blyton, a career woman - a trained pilot) has news for them: she is going to rent a castle for Prince Paul's royal parents - and they're all invited to stay there. This is exactly the sort of holiday you would want as a ten-year-old, but aren't very likely to get.

I was going through my book shelves and found a few Enid Blytons still left after 40 years (they're my dad's, and I'm a champion at somehow losing books which is tragic beyond limits). This and rubadub mystery are two of my favourite most books ever. I know people laugh when I say, at 22, I still love The Famous Five or The Secret Seven but I can't help it. They're my introduction to the world of reading. Them and the umpteen detective story books (ooh! and the gazillion comics!) I bought from t...more
Well old Enid had an imagination, that's for sure. The boys get exposed to radiation of some kind, instruments play themselves and another secret passage. How many houses in the world must have secret passages for Children to uncover mysteries from them! Of course they solve it, and the baddie guy is taken away. It's not the best ending for a series, but it is a kind of ending I suppose. Which Enid Blyton series should I read next? I haven't read any of the secret seven books for a while. ;)
I didn't expect her to take the series out with such a dark turn! (view spoiler) I can't believe no-one has commented on this.
Loved this as a kid and enjoyed the reread, though there is very little 'danger' to the kids unlike the FF, Barney Mysteries or Adventure books...
The last in this series sees the father of Prince Paul hire a castle for a holiday and invites his friends to visit. While there the children find some unusual going ons and decide to find out what is actually going on. There are abandoned villages, mines and a locked tower with mysterious lights. Another very enjoyable book from my childhood.
Buku ini mengingatkan gue pada buku-buku petualangan Lima Sekawan. Bahasanya sederhana, meskipun petualagan mereka lebih simple dibanding yang ada di Lima Sekawan. Gak ketinggalan limun, biscuit sandwich, kue cokelat yang besar dan es krim yang menemani mereka bertualang… hmmmm… Jadi bernostalgia sama Enid Blyton, nih…
Another mystery series by Blyton

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...more
