Iako više volim onu famoznu petorku, ni ovih sedam nije loše. Simpa za odmor od ozbiljnijih knjiga!

This was yet another of the Secret Seven novels I missed as a child, but have now caught up on. This is a really quick mystery, as the first part of the book deals with the Seven finding a cooler meeting placein the hot weather, and deciding to build a tree house. These sort of things are what makes these books; the idea of independent play and the ability to be able to trot off and do stuff. I was a sheltered child, I would never have been allowed these freedoms!

The mystery is quickly resolved,

This title is #3 of 15 novels in the Secret Seven Series, originally published in the late 1940's and 50's. I would categorize it as a cozy English mystery for kids. Many reviewers of the English version have remarked on how dated it seems. Of course the Brisitsh characters and their circumstances are not those of 21st century American culture. However, I tend to agree with one of the reviewers who remarked that since she herself (as a child reader) hadn't noticed the disparities, she doubted mo ...more

This book is about a group of children called the "Secret Seven" who are a group of children who likes to solve mysteries in their village.

It was during one summer vacation when the Secret Seven were very bored and had nothing to do. So they decided to go into the woods and build a treehouse to stay in. All of the members were having fun and relaxing in the treehouse. They brought snacks and games from home to eat and play all day long.

One day, Pam, one of the Secret Seven members decided to le

Wow! The Secret Society is really doing some great job. Hats off! This one was a lot better than its previous counterpart. The plot is something like this.

The secret society soon discovers a strange boy along with his cat who trespasses into their domination and they soon get to know about the boys Uncle, who

it was an adventure.

Secret Seven no.3, in which the kids actually do have to do a bit of sleuthing.

Oh yeah, and their parents let them stay up to go on a crime sting with the local cops. How awesome was childhood in Enid Blyton books?

Great book!
Sean Harding
The Secret Seven were always in the shadow of The Famous Five and apparently attracted some controversy being written only a short time after the close of world war two and having the youngsters wearing badges with SS blazoned on them.
This one again reveals what a total prat the self appointed leader of the group is and how very middle class they all are and their attitudes towards the lower class is clearly obvious.
The mystery which is not really much of a mystery is saved and the title comes t

Well Done, Secret Seven is a great book. It's about a group of seven kids called Peter
(the leader), Janet, Jack, Barbara, Pam, Colin and George. These seven are always getting into big cases. In this book, they meet a kid called Jeff and his kitten which was hurt by Jeffś uncle who is a leader of a gang of thieves. Jeffś mother is in hospital. This is a great book because the twist is just 'wow!'. I think this book is for people aged 8-101. It may appeal to people who like adventure stories. l

This is the second time I have read a mystery book. I love mystery books because they are quite complicated and sometimes fun and scary at the same time. These days my favourite author is Enid
Blyton because she write many mystery books I love. I would say that I like this book more than the first mystery book I have read. Thank you, Enid Blyton for making many mystery books like-
The Famous Five, Noddy and Malory Towers.

When we compare this part of secret seven it looks very normal.
Never like the previous one,everything happens as planed except the introduction of the new character
I would recommend reading the previous version of secret seven than this one
Overall this book was just good

42 WORD REVIEW:

A simple little one-sitting mystery, which actually takes up less of the book than the children’s building of a treehouse. The Secret Seven think rather highly of themselves but here lack much by way of character – except for Scamper the Cocker Spaniel.

I’m rereading some of my childhood favorites and I had to start with The Secret Seven by Enid Blyton!!
For a children’s book, it’s really entertaining and I’m happy I revisited this story

The Secret Seven have a new meeting place - a tree house! But someone else is secretly using it too! The gang are furious that someone has found their hide-out and is pinching their food and goodies, but when they find out that the intruder is in big trouble and needs their help, The Secret Seven are on the job to crack the cryptic case and help this mysterious intruder.

I, for one, thought this book was much better than the first two I read, just because of the way in which the story wasn't rus

The Secret Seven build a tree house
27 April 2013

Another short Enid Blyton mystery where the Secret Seven manage to prevent some bad people from ruining somebody's lovely day. However it takes about half of the book for the adventure to start because the first half of the book has them building a tree house because the shed in which they meet in is a little too hot. However, it always makes me cringe when English authors talk about hot days in England because they are pretty much non-existent, i

Having enjoyed Enid Blyton's books as a child, I thought I would re read one of them. This book is the third in the series and tells the story of the Secret Seven having yet another adventure. In this book, they encounter a young boy, Jeff, who tells them that he has overheard a criminal plan. The Secret Seven must act to stop this plan, and save the boy.

I quite enjoyed reading this book, as it is written in short chapters and it is quite fast paced. I feel it would be good for individual readi

Another thing I found on the shelves at home, my mother's childhood copy, this time. A pleasantly quick and easy read, I recall that when I was young I preferred the Famous Five, because their adventures were more exciting, and that memory seems fair, although this is rather lovely. A world in which small children wander off into the woods in the centre of the night is always surprising these days, but the story is solid as ever, and the adventure genuinely rather compelling in this case. I thin
