"Misteri Penyamar Ulung" merupakan salah satu karya Enid Blyton yang terbaik, kalau gak salah saya baru baca buku ini sekitar tahun 2004 dan langsung saja Enid Blyton menjadi pengarang novel favorit saya ^_^.
ceritanya tentang Fatty, Pip, Larry, Desy dan Beth yang berusaha membantu Komisaris Jenk menemukan seorang buronan berbahaya yang berhasil kabur dari tahanan, mereka sudah tahu ciri - ciri buronan itu diantaranya berupa bekas luka di atas bibir, tulang-tulang tangan yang bertonjolan, tinggi

Spoilers obviously. I DON'T see how you can write a full book review without revealing anything.





Okay. Do you hear me at the background screaming it's so obvious? The moment the old lady got introduced?

I suppose it is for kids where its lots of suspense for them and stuff and I'm more in the teens category. Nope. Really shouldn't be judging it harshly.

Anyway, what I liked about it, goes for the series, is that although very repetitive throughout the book, for example like waiting for Fatty to c

I am enjoying re-reading my favourite Enid Blyton series 40 years on. It strikes me now just how shadowy Pip, Larry and Daisy are in these stories. Bets has a little more to say but it is really all about Fatty. I note that their home of Peterswood is near Marlow but the the real Peterswood is actually near Harlow. The real life places of Maidenhead and Bucks also get mentioned. Fatty's running in 1956 is referred to as 'cross country running' but on page 70 his action is described as 'jog-jog-j ...more

Fatty unexpectedly plays the role of the villain in this one, at least for a while. Inspector Jenks has grown to trust Fatty and the others, and lets them in on the mystery early, so they set off at once. They can't seem to find the missing man though, just a dirty old woman and her grown up children. How will they solve this mystery? And will they be able to with that horrible girl tagging along? Find out for yourself! :)

This mystery is about an escaped prisoner .It was a mystery because nobody knew the whereabouts of the escaped .I liked it because I was curious to know the whereabouts of the escaped prisoner.The part I liked was when one of the character asked a stupid question to another character.I liked that part because it was funny.

This book is really very nice. It is about 5 people and a dog. They are very good at solving mystreies. They always solve the mystrey before the village police man, Mr Goon. If you want to read, it would be better to start reading from book no.1.(It would be better)

Ma tu guarda! Ho trovato questo libro per caso al supermercato, e mi sono ricordato di quello che fu il mio primo 'giallo per ragazzi' in assoluto, prima ancora della collana Mondadori. Faceva parte di questa serie, che penso non sia stata tradotta tutta in italiano.

Received a slip case o'mystery of ... books when i was a child. Loved Enid Blyton - but this range of books seems less avaiable now than the secret seven and famous five type. Watched those ones on the telly but couldn't get into the books
