IN SEARCH OF... Mum, Dad, Tracey...friends far and near...I am in search of the Secret Seven & Famous Five series of books by Enid Blyton. I desperately want these for Piper and Paisley so that I can read them to them each night. Sure, they are from the 40's and 50's but I fondly remember wearing the covers of these books thin when I was a child, and I want the girls to have the same enjoyment as I did. My love of books is no secret, I have almost an unhealthy obsession with children's literature. But...I cannot help myself wanting these favorites for their bookshelf. The Malory Towers series was one of my all time childhood favorites. Another favorite I am hoping to pick up, luckily this one is available on Amazon...but please, if anyone can source out ANY the above series for me I would be eternally grateful!
and then there are these sweet gems...I must have them...I must!
UPDATE: I found the secret Seven series for a good price with free shipping so I ordered them for Piper's 5th birthday.

Oh I loved the famous five and Malory Towers. My other favorite was the Borrowers...I hate what they did on TV though. My imagination had it so much better! I'll check with my brother back home to see if he can find any.

Ironically enough, I too am collecting a book series from my past. They used to be my mom's when she was a kid... unfortunately the entire series (that I read every year for years) was given away at some point. I stated collecting them again this year. It's the Cherry Ames series, very good and fun!
