Down memory lane to visit The Famous Five
And I never knew how old they were - can you believe they were first published in the forties?!
So for those of you not familiar, the Famous Five were a group of children, siblings Julian, Dick and Anne, and their tom-boy cousin George and her dog Timmy, who had the sort of adventures most kids dream about and solved mystery after mystery.
When I have my own house with a big enough bookcase, they will definitely be going on display. Do you think my future kids would read them one day? Not quite the same as Twilight, but you never know...
Also found these little gems: The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton and The Bubblegum Tree by Alexander McCall Smith.
So what books did you read as a kid?
