A touch didactic, but otherwise redeemed by the discovery that Blyton was a great admirer of A.S.Neill and his groundbreaking Summerhill school. Good fun.
After almost immediately noticing how seriously and overtly collectivism is celebrated and actively being promoted by Enid Blyton in her The Naughtiest Girl in the School and how I do personally consider this pretty well majorly problematic (and no, I am NOT a total individualist either, but that in The Naughtiest Girl in the School, main protagonist Elizabeth Allen is slowly but surely stripped of her personality and independence to become communal and rather Communist even, like the other stud ...more

Not quite as good as the first one, for a number of probably nit-picky reasons, but still a pretty good story. They probably should have renamed our protagonist the Angriest Girl for this instalment...

"The Naughtiest Girl Again" is one of my favorite books.

This book is about a girl named Elizabeth who wants to be good

at this term of the school year, and not the same naughty girl she

was last term. But someone wants to make her miserable, and

show everyone the naughty side of her instead of the nice one.

At the end Elizabeth succeeds at dealing with all her problems and

she's doing well in school.

I chose this book because it looked interesting and because I had it

lying around my house but I nev

My children love these. I'd missed them as a child and have to say I'm a Mallory Towers girl myself but they both adore these so it has to be 5 stars. ...more

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying quite a few Enid Blyton books recently. The Naughtiest Girl Again is the second book in a series although it works just fine as a standalone. We follow young Elizabeth at boarding school, as she learns some important lessons in how to treat others kindly. I found this one to be a cosy read, with the old fashioned story and writing style. I appreciated the simplicity of plot, with an important underlying message for all ages.

After I have read the beginning of "The Naughtiest Girl Again" I liked three things about it. One of the reasons that I liked this book is because the main character, Elizabeth, tries to change during this term. One example she gives during this story is that she tries to be friends with everybody and she tries not to break any rules. I really liked this book because every thing that is happening to Elizabeth represents a real life story. It can happen to anyone that goes to a boarding or a norm ...more

I adore Enid Blyton's books, and in particular I love the Naughtiest Girl trilogy. From the writing style and subject matter it is very obvious the decade the book was written, but that doesn't detract from the wonderful story it tells. Elizabeth is a loveable character who has a hot temper, one that I'm sure many of us can relate to. Her interactions with the other characters are honest and true and is one of the things I love the most about this book.

The plot is so unbelievably simple it's dif

A second moral tale in the Naughtiest Girl series as Elizabeth and her friends return to Whyteleafe School, based on the progressive Summerhill School, for another term and more life lessons.

Some of the well behaved children still seem rather priggish and the changes in any child with problem behaviour, after it has been challenged, are so miraculous that they seem unreal. (Which of course they are - if only it were so easy to sort out bad behaviour in real life). What most grates to the modern

I used to love these books as a kid, but now, as an adult, reading this particular book makes me think it's probably not something I'd be that comfortable letting my kids read (unlike the other books in the series).
There is a big preoccupation with the kids (girls in particular) needing to be happy and cheerful and good in order to not only be perceived as pretty but to actually look pretty. One girl in particular, Kathleen, is sullen and spotty and has greasy hair and has quite a nasty pers

Me being a fan of young adult books was not very keen in reading an enid blyton book which was something i use to when i was 10 years old (im 15 now) but it was a gift from a friend of who knows absolutely nothing about novels but it would be ungrateful on my side by not reading it so i did and i liked it, i found a potential pair in robert and elizabeth n i wish they could which was VERY Unlikely considering the age of the characters and the author but still their fights and friendship was the ...more

One thing I admire about Blyton's writing is that it's engaging and fun and can be read in a few hours. You don't need to look for twists and turns. Life at school, pranks from friends, a new found rival, kindness from unexpected quarters. The setting might be different but it just feels quite familiar.

The naughtiest girl Elizabeth Allen returns to Whyteleafe for another term. She finds herself a couple of rivals in Robert and Kathleen. There seems to be a bully at scho

This book was as good or even better than the first to me. While Elizabeth continued to have some problems to resolve, other characters had issues and learned to cope! I, especially, like how the characters think about their problems and do something to correct their mistakes. I think that saying sorry all the time is a great lesson for young readers to learn. It is hard to admit making a mistake and often harder to apologize!! Something Kathleen said stood out: “It is our own selves that make u ...more

Elizabeth Allen returns to Whyteleafe wanting to do her best but ends up getting into some trouble again. There are three new students this time, one a fun and friendly girl but the others a bully and a somewhat spiteful girl. While EB has had ‘nasty’ students cured in other school stories too, what makes this one different is the fact that the students themselves realise that there are reasons behind such aberrations and if these are addressed the behaviour itself goes away—showing more promine ...more

I bought this book for a small family friend still in primary school and decided to read it to relive my childhood memories of poring over Enid Blyton’s books. Enid Blyton writes so beautifully as she would have described one who did so 😄. One of my best quotes in the book is by Elizabeth who said “It seems to me that if we dislike people, we see all the worst side of them because we make them show that to us - but if we like them, then they smile at us and show their best side “. Enjoy reading ...more

Now that the naughtiest girl has been broken and has become a part of the horror of this school, it is time to make her a real obedient soul and of course have someone trying to upset the apple cart.
The whole premise of the school is hard to take and even harder to believe, Lord of the Flies reveals how this school would actually end up.
Anyway this is not one of Blyton's best and the whole school terrifies me more than anything else in this series.

Continuation of a childhood favorite, which I had never read.
Reading it as an adult, and an adult in 2020, not 1950, there are some eye-rolling moments. But still, a nice step back to a place where everything works out. Just the mood I needed.

I read this together with my daughter. I guess she liked it, but there is no real moral in this story. Just chronicles of things happened to a girl Elizabeth and how she became to like her school and became a better girl

According to me, this book was even better than the 1st book of the series. It shows the determination of Elizabeth who tries to make up for her naughtiness from the previous term.
