As soon as Mum switched off the lights, Georgina clicked on the torch, huddled under her blanket and flipped open her book, eager to discover if the Famous Five and Timmy had managed to escape the island, so she could then solve the clues with Fatty and the gang, accompany the Adventurous Four and move on to playing Lacrosse at Malory Towers and share a midnight feast with the O’Sullivan Twins at St. Clare’s.
Last week she’d solved the Rilloby Fair Mystery with Snubby, visited Cherry Tree Farm, flown on the Wishing Chair with Chinky the pixie, got into trouble with Mr. Pink Whistle, giggled at Kiki the parrot and later stepped into the Enchanted Wood, climbed up the Magic Faraway Tree, dodged Dame Washalot’s dirty washing-water, peeked in at the Angry Pixie, and munched pop biscuits with Moon-Face, Saucepan Man and Silky the Fairy.
Days spent in quaint cottages, surrounded by buttercups and honeysuckle, Georgina’s bookshelves were filled with magical lands, mysteries, animals, crumpets, scones and peels of laughter, all thanks to her favourite author, Enid Blyton.
Here’s to my magical days of Enid Blyton, full of mystery and wizardry! I just wish I could have added in all the stories and characters that to this day, still remain a vivid memory! Thank you Enid Blyton! 💕 🙂
