Great letter from Lorna, and on nice headed paper too. I can well understand you not being too keen on Five Run Away together, Lorna. For someone of your age I think it is a bit of a scary book, especially in the dungeons. :)

I enjoyed reading your letter, Lorna. The Naughtiest Girl in the School has always been one of my favourites too because I love reading about all the things Elizabeth gets up to.

When she was a child, Enid Blyton's favourite book was The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald.

For your age, Lorna, 5 Run Away Together is a bit scary. Though it's my favourite FF book, actually, I completely understand you. Lovely letter by the way!!

Lorna, when I was exactly your age my first Enid Blyton book was Five Run Away Together. It was my best - oh, how much I loved it. Your letter was sweet. Please read lots of Enid Blyton books. They will keep you very happy. :lol: :lol:

I think that you will find that this is Rupsa Mitra posting, but she is using the name of her English teacher - Snehalatha Nair.

Thanks for confiming that, Tony - things were getting rather confusing! Nice to see you posting, Rupsa. :D

That's cleared that one up, then. By the way, I am really Nigel, but I am posting under my English master's name...

Who are all these Snehalatha Nairs? Is Rupsa's teacher Nair Snehalatah? If so, why does she call her Snehalatha Nair and not Nair Snethalatha?

I think Nair Snehalatha's surname is Nair and her first name 'Snehalatha'. Rupsa has been posting on the message boards for a while, I think, so perhaps Snehalatha wanted her to get a feel of the forums too and let her post as a guest in the Letters from Children threads (the only threads you can post as guests.) Yes I believe Snehalatha is Rupsa's teacher.
