For the small set
Who remembers the Famous Five? The Secret Seven? And apparently there are about a billion more Enid Blyton books. I rediscovered the FF with my kids, and while we've not read many, we've enjoyed the inimitably British tone and great adventures of Julian, Dick, Anne, George, and of course, Timmy-the-dog. And the mom in me thrills at the complete independence of those kids - they don't have helicopter parents, heck, they barely have any parents! If the thought of these delightful stories makes you say "rawther!" and generates a desire for sweeties, you might enjoy this affectionate tribute.
