Paul's (snipped) description of Enid Blyton's books:
>And I've probably missed something important.
Not sure I'd use the word important in the same sentence with Enid Blyton
_too_ hastily, but - given the Harry Potter phenomenon, it's probably worth
mentioning the boarding school books. I read EB's boarding school series,
along with the other famous ones (by Angela Brazil?), and can't remember a
single thing about them. May well be indicative of something other than
just my great age and poor memory. ;)
FWIW, I wasn't allowed read the Noddy books. I think in retrospect that my
mother may have heard about the nasty racist elements in the adventure
series and confused those with Noddy. But I don't know for sure as I still
haven't read them. The girls picked up one or two EBs from the school
library and neither showed the least interest in reading any more.
