Joint review of Six Cousins at Mistletoe Farm and this book.

There are two brothers, David and Peter. Peter's the farmer, David's the townie. David's house burns down and he sends his children to Peter's house while he goes and tries to find work. He ultimately returns and buys a farm next to Mistletoe Farm. The first book is about the six cousins trying to get along and teaching each other. This book is actually quite nice and very well-written. The second book is victim blaming of women who don

A book about a dysfunctional family, elitism, snobbery, the haves and have-nots, factionalism within families, body-shaming, trophy wives - not exactly what I expected from an Enid Blyton book!

This is one of those books that are difficult to rate. I found it engaging, but there's also quite a lot wrong with it, so is it a two or a three? I've gone with a three, as you can see. I enjoyed reading it, and I thought it was overall a good sequel to Six Cousins At Mistletoe Farm - definitely worth doing, but not as enjoyable as its predecessor. The main problem for me is the sexism, not Enid's usual brand, but the exacting standards for women and the expectation that they should move heaven ...more

I haven't read the first "Six Cousins" book, but that did not make this second installment any less enjoyable. It was a surprisingly psychologically-complex novel from Enid Blyton; very different from the style of writing in the Secret Seven and Famous Five series.

The story is about six cousins who live on two farms - Mistletoe Farm and Holly Farm - that are just a few miles apart. Mistletoe Farm is old and shabby, but its occupants are hardworking, and happy with their lives. Holly Farm is new

This book was one of the very first Enid Blyton books I read after the Noddy ones and I totally fell in love with it. I could so relate to the character Roderick. Possibly I am not like him at all but kind of felt a strange affinity to that character. The tale is about a person from rural background returning to country life with his city bred family. His children have some experience having lived a few months with their uncle and aunt in the countryside. The one most unprepared is his wife. It ...more

I love this book! I love the themes of how when trouble hits you are supposed to stand up and face it. This book is more centered on Rose and her children. Rose finally has some harsh lessons as trouble after trouble hits Holly Farm

Again, classic Blyton.

Much better than the first one, mostly because the other uppity kids didn't feature so much in it. And Roderick is a dear.

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 taught for five years before her 192
