Enid Blyton’s short stories
February round up
“This is a real secret passage. A really proper one. Golly – isn’t it fun!”
Brock says what they’re all thinking in The Secret of Cliff Castle.
The Mystery of the Burnt Cottage is the first Five Find-Outers book. It’s not only their first mystery but the first time the group exists too. Fatty and Buster meets Larry, Daisy, Pip and Bets in the first chapter and although they don’t like each other much at first, they soon make friends and start detecting. This first mystery sees them trying to work out who set fire to Mr Hick’s workroom, and going up against Mr Goon the policeman for the first time.
I’m getting confused now: is “Secret of Cliff Castle” considered to be a short story? For me it was always a stand alone novel.
You’re right, it’s a stand alone novel. I will be writing about short stories later in the week. Topics of the week = posts to come later that week. Book/quote/location/character of the week = chosen at random for a brief description to introduce people to those things, and to pad out the Monday posts! Hope that makes sense.
