A completely un-confusing guide to names in Blyton’s books

And

Blyton’s funniest animals

“I do love the beginning of the summer hols,’ said Julian. They always seem to stretch out ahead for ages and ages.’
‘They go so nice and slowly at first,’ said Anne, his little sister. ‘Then they start to gallop.”
― Five Go Off in a Caravan

I very strongly identify with this sentiment, even now as an adult the holidays I do have go far too quickly.

My character of the week is Bill aka Wilhelmina Robinson from Malory Towers I really admire her for not completely conforming with the ‘girlie’ ideaology that the other girls in her form have – all the needle work, dainty things she really destests. She even decides to carry on with woodwork instead of sewing or crafts when she gets to decide what she wants to do with her schooling. Shes a wonderful horsewoman and really feels like a very solid character to me.
