Awful

If the author was attempting to write in the style of Miss Blyton and capture the period of the 50's I'm afraid she has failed miserably. The story itself had no hook and was too long winded. The narration really was flat and the characterizations were unfathomable from one to the next. Read the originals yourself. Avoid this title!
