The Secret Seven-Good Old Secret Seven-A Book review

Name: Good Old Secret Seven

Author: Enid Blyton

Genre: Adventure

This is an adventure about the very strange happenings at old castle called Torling Castle.

One day, Peter, the leader of the Secret Seven club, calls a meeting since Jack has received a present he wants to share. They soon find out that it is a telescope and disappointed at the fact that they will have to share it with Jack’s annoying sister, Suzie who badly wants to belong in the club.

One night, when Janet was looking at Torling Castle through the telescope, that she finds a man or a woman peeking through one of the windows cautiously, scaring away the resident jackdaws.

Soon, Peter calls another meeting and they all discuss and decide to pay a visit at Torling Castle. Thy find twigs that are still hot and tin cans. Soon, when they find a suitable room in the castle to have a break, they start hearing bangs and pops and they flee. When they reach their meeting shed, they feel stupid for leaving the castle in such a rush and suprisingly, they find out that Suzie and her silly little giggly friend, Binkie played a trick on them. The secret seven soon decide to ask her questions and they learn that a woman was painting a picture of the castle and that she was living there for some time. She was also very interested in knowing about Jack’s telescope. Suzie and Binkie were shooed away and the club felt quite stupid and mad at the two girls for gossiping about their telescope.

The next day, Peter and Janet are shocked to find out that their meeting shed is with the key in the lock and the telescope is missing!

Angry and disappointed, they question Suzie and Binkie about the missing telescope and they come to the conclusion that, that maybe, whoever is up in the castle has stolen their telescope.

The boys decide to go up to the castle again and the girls and their spaniel, Scamper will stay at home to wait for a signal if anything goes wrong and Janet has a task for borrowing a pair of binoculars from her dad without worrying him about their night adventure.

Janet goes to ask her dad for a pair of binoculars and unfortunately her father goes rushing to the castle with the shepherd an the farmer while Scamper is nowhere to be seen.

Meanwhile, Peter and the boys find rolls and rolls of paintings taken out of their frames hidden under the hay piles the jackdaws dropped for making their nests in the room the woman Suzie and Binkie found painting a picture of the castle.

Unfortunately, Peter and the boys get caught by big men and they kick the rolls down the stairs and they are thrown in a dungeon but luckily Scamper comes to their rescue and they are able to flee finding Peter’s dad, the shepherd and the farmer tackling the men and throwing them in the police van. Peter and his friends run down the hills and collect all the rolls of the valuable paintings spread on the grass.

Unluckily, their telescope is not found but they will be rewarded by the police with a brand new telescope even better than the old one.

THE END
