Holly’s review: Enid Blyton, the author of this book, is one of my favourite authors. Since I began to read her books I wanted to read more of them. I like this book because it is fascinating and adventurous because of what happens in it, for example when Jack has a fight with Pepi on a raging, stormy night. It is about these kids who are supposed to go off for a weekend with a friend but end up getting on the wrong plane that takes them to a valley with a couple of dangerous men.
This book is a very good book for children and adults who like adventures and puzzling mysteries. If you would like to read this book then go to your local library or book shop.
Sam’s review: I didn’t get much of a look-in on this one as Holly was reading it under the covers after we had put her to bed. I think she has a torch in her bedroom somewhere. I remember the story vaguely from when I was younger, about a holiday spent trying to avoid criminals. I doubt whether these children would get travel insurance these days as they are always getting into (and admittedly out of) the most alarming scrapes. It’s a great book for children to do some voyeuristic adventuring and there’s plenty of comedy in the shape of Kiki the parrot, one of Blyton’s most amusing characters I think. Top marks!
