The Secret Seven Book 6
*Good Work Secret Seven*
This story is very much similar to various other SS books, especially the act of locating the suspects. It takes a bit from here and there and collaborates everything and builds a brand new story and amazes the readers. Susie, now, has truly become a main character and an antihero person. Scamper, the golden retriever is now much shown in the story. Peter and Janet are believed to be the most important SS members as they actually become victims to t

Yet another case of capturing theives, except these are car thieves who steal Janet and Peter's car while they are inside, in the backseat. A whispered conversation leads them to the thieves, and busts a bigger racket than their father gave credit for, since he didn't even bother reporting the car theft.

Another quick mystery knocked out of the park, but these are starting to get repetitive. Four stars.

The Secret Seven hunt some car thieves
17 July 2014

The one thing that I like about these books is that they take a relatively short time to read (though that can be a problem in itself if you, like me, are writing a review on each of the books that you have read) and is quite entertaining as well. While the story itself was not all that bad, the edition that I picked up, which happened have been released in 2013, shows the much more modern response to Enid Blyton, especially with DON'T PLAY WITH

I'm amused that it took me almost two months to finish reading a book that I could've read in about fifteen minutes. What can I say – other books got in the way.

Fairly typical Secret Seven fare.

One of the funny parts is when Janet and Barbara looked at peter in the wheelbarrow that was pretending to be a guy. This book was about finding 2 naughty guys who stole peters dad’s car and there were 2 men inside. One was driving and one was just sitting there with his suitcase. Janet was sleeping and Peter was wide eyes opened like a wolf. The worst bit about the book was when they went inside Sid’s café and a few days later they went to the police station and said they went to Sid’s café and ...more

Revisiting the books of my youth out of a feeling of nostalgia! I loved Enid Blyton when I was younger and can't wait to re-read these with my own children.

There's a Secret Seven book that I remembered vividly from my childhood; the copy I read was either published in India or a British import, and had (I thought) a scarecrow on the cover with a ghoulish green face mask and someone's real eyes behind it. I also vaguely remembered a mention of fireworks. I would have liked to track down the book, but I didn't know the title, and the blurbs on the library's books didn't seem to match it. On the other hand, one of the Secret Seven books had a cover wi ...more

seru.....dengan sedikit adat yang berbeda dengan kita sehingga beberapa bagian tidak pantas untuk diucapkan karena itulah saya hanya memberi 4 bintang karena hal tersebut.

ketika membua buku ini, ingatan lama saya kembali terkuak meski lupa endingnya saya masih ingat dengan cerita ini. saat saya baca dulu waktu di bangku SMA sekitar tahun 1999 :)

In which two children are in a car which gets stolen by two shifty men. Rather than stay home traumatised forever about being left alone, they (and five of their mates) attempt to track down the crims.

None of which seems to worry their parents or the local constabulary overmuch. Is Blyton really making a commentary on the negligence of grown-ups in the England of her time?

A decent mystery with a rather fun idea to solve it, some real adventuring for the gang with some actual jeopardy, and for the first time a fairly strong sense of character for four or five of the Seven at one time. This is the Secret Seven series at its best (whetting the appetite well for the more "grown-up" Blyton adventure series) so for that reason it gets four stars.

Dang, Peter (the leader of the Secret Seven) is a real jerk sometimes. He says to one of the girls, "I've sometimes thought that you're not as good as a Secret Seven member as the others are." Yeesh. Run away, gurrl, run. away.

Rasanya ceritanya mengalir biasa saja. beda dengan petualangan lima sekawan, dan pasukan mau tahu.
tidak begitu deg-degan atau penasaran benar dan tiba-tiba sudah berada di halaman terakhir.
tapi ini mungkin karena ditujukan buat anak-anak dan remaja. bagus buat bacaan mereka.

It seemed a bit strange that children were solving crimes and sneaking about at night, spying on criminals, but it was an easy read and the story was enjoyable.

This was a re-reading of the book I had as a child as a school prize. I wonder if the latest editions have any alterations made withthe wording as some of it now has a completely different meaning.

Enid Mary Blyton (1897 - 1968) was an English author of children's books.

Born in South London, 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 192

“THE NEXT day another Secret Seven meeting was held, but this time it was at Colin’s, in his little summer-house. It wasn’t such a good place as Peter’s shed, because it had an open doorway with no door, and they were not allowed to have an oil-stove in it. However, Colin’s mother had asked all the Secret Seven to tea, so it was clear they would have to have their next meeting at his house, and the little summer-house was the only place where they could talk in secret.” 1 likes
