Review: Although Enid Blyton has written the Adventure series for children, I think it can be enjoyed by all ages.
This is the third book in the series I have reread for nostalgic value. I read most of the series way back when I was in primary school, and I have found it most enjoyable to read some of them again.
In The Ship of Adventure the four children, who get caught up an an amazing adventure every summer holiday, go on a nice safe cruise, but after they discover a secret in a ship in a bottle, they are off to a mysterious "dead" island in the Greek Islands in search of a long lost treasure. Fortunately Bill is there to help them fight of the bad guys.
This is a great story, and I definitely recommend it, no matter how old (or young) you are. Enid Blyton, 1897 - November 28, 1968 Enid Blyton was born in London in 1897. She was educated in a private school and thought that she would become a musician until she realized that writing was her passion. She attended Ipswich High School where she trained to become a kindergarten teacher and eventually opened her own school for infants. Blyton's first poem was published in 1917, entitled "Have You-" which appeared in Nash's Magazine. In 1922, her first book of verses was published, entitled "Child Whispers." In 1926 she accepted a position editing the children's magazine "Sunny Stories" as well as writing the column "Teachers World." Blyton's first full length children's book was published din 1938 and was titled "The Secret Island." After working on the column for years, Blyton quit "Teachers World" in 1945 and also ended her stint as editor of "Sunny Stories" seven years later. In 1953 she started her own children's magazine called "The Edith Blyton Magazine" which featured stories about her characters and news on the clubs formed around them. Her most famous stories were those of the "Famous Five" The Magazine closed in 1959. In the 50's and 60's Blyton was criticized for the language in her book, for being to simple, but some 300 are still in print today. Blyton has published over 600 books in the course of her career. Enid Blyton died in her sleep on November 28, 1968. She was 71 years old.
