The en­dur­ing ap­peal of Enid

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IREALLY en­joyed the piece about the Fa­mous Five (April 19) and was a child­hood fan of th­ese tales of caves and smug­glers, pic­nics and gin­ger beer. Granted, even in the early 1990s, they were dated, but they re­main charm­ing and no one can claim they want ac­cu­rate life por­traits in the age of Harry Pot­ter. In­ci­den­tally, I looked at one of the for-adult par­o­dies and failed to laugh once—why does ev­ery­thing have to be made fun of and ridiculed? I would be happy, if I had chil­dren, for them to read Enid Bly­ton books all day. Jen­nifer Shelden, Le­ices­ter­shire
