A Letter from Komal

Postby Tony Summerfield » 20 May 2013, 15:32

I thought twice about posting this letter as it didn't appear to be one for the Society, but a letter that came with it from Lynne Main, the librarian at the school was to us and I have therefore decided to post Komal's letter. Obviously Komal must think that the Society is run by the Blyton family!

A very detailed and interesting letter. I like the fun and mischief in Enid Blyton's books too, Komal, and I think you'll love The Naughtiest Girl in the School.

I liked reading your letter, Komal. I agree that the Amelia-Jane stories are good reads - I read them over and over when I was younger. Amelia-Jane is so naughty and mischievous!

I hope you enjoy the Naughtiest Girl. I'm re-reading the series at the moment. They're different to the Malory Towers and St. Clare's series (which are more like each other), and are very interesting and entertaining to read.

An interesting letter, Komal. Yes, I'm sure you'll love the Naughtiest Girl books; there are four written by Enid Blyton and six others written by Anne Digby which are worth a look at too, if you enjoyed the first four. Have you tried the 'Adventure' and 'Mystery' side of Enid's work? If not, I would highly recommend it - they are thrilling books including the amazing Famous Five Series, and the Adventure Series, both series are fantastic. If you prefer things like disguises and detective stories, you'll love the Find-Outers. There are so many to read - personally I would begin with the Famous Five. They are inviting, thrilling books starring four children and a dog who simply can't keep out of adventure! Hope you enjoy the series you propose to read. You are in for a treat!

I read the Amelia Jane books when I was younger and it was a nice start to Blyton books. It's good to start and go on to read others. Have you read the 'Faraway Tree' series? They are fantasy books too, a bit like Amelia Jane but more adventure packed. I could go on forever, but I'd better stop! :lol:

A lovely letter. I like the P.S. at the end. Seems children want more talks on Enid Blyton and her books etc. That's really nice to know. :)

I totally agree. I teach in High School, mostly sixth form students and hardly ever have students that can express themselves in such a clear way.

Yes, she has a good way with words. You really should try the other series Komal, as you're not very small. Nice letter by the way!
