Jolly romp......

a jolly romp for children to either read or listen to, I enjoyed it far more than 'The sea of adventure'. I enjoy many books written with children in mind and because I like 'The famous five' I gave these books a go,they don't lend themselves to adult readers as well as The Five .
Blyton seems to use very similar characters in both sets of books and in 'The Adventure' books the children seem more sophisticated but for me not as likeable.
