Blog Rediscovering Enid Blyton and the Famous Five

My first Blyton book was a Noddy book, I can still remember sitting in bed as a four year old at my grand-parents house in Beddgelert, a little village that looked out over Snowdonia, the wind and rain pelted against the windows that wintry evening but I was safely tucked up in my holiday bed reading and re-reading my Noddy goes to Town book. I can not be sure if my fascination with books started at that moment of time or before but I do still fondly remember the feeling of being cosy and warm and totally lost within a book.
