Enid Blyton is an amazing childrens author, bestselling in the world. Although almost undiscovered by Americans.
This series (The 5 Find-outers) Features 4 friends who search out mysteries like detectives, often foiling the local constable while doing so. Fatty- The leader of the children, often dresses up in hilarious disguises as he solves these mysteries... Enjoy.
Top Notch reading... Introduce your kids to Enid Blyton today!!!

Enid Blyton selalu berhasil membuat saya ingin bertualang dan memecahkan misteri-misteri. Buku yang menarik, karena bisa mengembangkan imajinasi pembaca :)

How strange! Who could have stolen all that money from a blind man? The Find Outers have a list of suspects, but Goon is on the case as well, and it will be a race to the finish. They will of course, show him up before the end, but that's part of the fun. A few new friends and glad people by the end, the Find Outers just go through life helping others and solving mysteries. A great, great book!

Akan selalu ada soft spot bagi saya untuk para anggota Pasukan Mau Tahu. Pip, Beth, Larry, Daisy, dan Fatty barangkali yang sudah menemani saya semasa kecil, tetapi mereka masih terus berumur dua belas tahun, sementara saya akan terus bertambah tua. Meski demikian, saya tidak akan pernah melupakan mereka.

Pathetic nonsense. The ridiculously ill conceived and unlikely ways that the gang has been getting involved with the "mysteries" lately has really started to annoy me.

I think I'm a bit over-exposed to these mystery books now. I've read 7 to the kids and it's telling!... but the kids love them so onto the next one!
