We are at the very end of January now. February is a short(er) month which I hope flies by much like January has.
The Faraway Tree on the Nintendo DS
We have started reading Enid Blyton’s Holiday Stories at bed times (borrowed from the library). The first story is At Seaside Cottage – the first prequel to the Secret Seven series. I don’t have this, and have never read it so despite this one probably being updated in places (they take a train but there’s no mention of steam at all) I’m still finding it interesting. Plus I’d love to have Granny’s cottage, with the gate at the back leading right onto the beach.
So this book is altered? Where can we find the original version and what by which name?
The first story is At Seaside Cottage which is the same title as when it was first published but it’s a reasonably scarce book to find now. The rest of the book are short stories which appear in various collections and magazines.
Thank you, Fiona.
