It sounds like the type ofA  discovery that one of her Famous Five characters might have made. The manuscript was not recognised as an unpublished novel at first because it has almost the same name as a book of cartoon strips Miss Blyton published in 1949, called Tumpy and His Caravan.But a closer look revealed that not only was it a complete novel, but the story was also different.

Booktopia - Go Ahead, Secret Seven, Classic Secret Seven Series : Book 5 by Enid Blyton, 9785555015235. Enid Blyton died in 1968 but remains one of the best-known and best-loved writers of children's stories.
As a young woman Enid was faced with many choices; her father had planned a career in music for her, while she felt drawn to writing. Throughout the 40 and 50s, Enid wrote books at a colossal pace: adventure stories, mysteries, magical stories, farming stories, stories for younger children, best-selling series like The Famous Five and Noddya€¦her writing knew no bounds! Apart from breaks to play golf and spend time with her children, Enid's working week was consumed with writing new stories, correcting proofs and answering the hundreds of letters she was, by now, receiving weekly.

A long-forgotten yellowed manuscript, which had spent decades gathering dust, has been identified as a previously unseen novel by Enid Blyton. Her father, Thomas Blyton stayed up with her night after night until her cough subsided and she recovered. Enid had two children with Hugh, and soon after wrote her first novel, The Adventures of the Wishing Chair. Taking a picnic to Bramley Woods they meet someone who tells them a strange tale about seeing someone hiding something inside one of the trees.

Titled Mr Tumpya€™s Caravan, the 180-page story tells the tale of a magical caravan and the travels of its inhabitants. It turns out that this is about a completely different Mr Tumpy and indeed a completely different caravan.a€™Miss Blyton developed dementia in her later years, and Mrs Smallwood believes the story could have been written towards the end of her life due to the a€?clumsya€™ style. I think I am probably the first person, certainly in a very long time, to have read the whole thing.a€?Ita€™s quite a surreal book, but very funny and very entertaining.
She has over 600 children's books to her credit, including the Famous Five series, the Secret Seven series, the Naughtiest Girl series - all Hodder - and the Malory Towers and St Clare's series, both available from Hodder on audio. In 1922, a collection of poems by Enid was published - it was her first step toward her dream of becoming an author.
But Jack sends a letter back to Peter saying, he is forming his own club with, Susie, Binkie, Bony and three others, and they'll be the Secret Seven and you'll be the Secret Six! First he discovers an unwanted visitor - then he protects the Seven as they spy on a thief late at night in the woods!
A The childrena€™s author, who has sold 500million copies of books including the Secret Seven and Malory Towers series, was not known to have any unpublished material.


And very original, as a lot of her fantasy novels were.a€™Miss Blyton died in 1968, aged 71, but updated and reprinted versions of her most popular stories are still selling 8million copies a year. But then valuable dogs start to go missing, and the thief appears to be a large person according to his footprints. Can the Seven find out who has stolen General Blanksome's medals,as well as guarding the birds' eggs in Bramley Woods from thieves?
But the find was made when a haul of her belongings was sold following the death of her eldest daughter, Gillian Baverstock. Susie gains access to a meeting in disguise, and Binkie actually causes the meeting to be literally washed out. Pam sees the funny side of it the next day, but Peter doesn't.Jack, now back in the fold, but late for the meeting due to Susie's misinformation, evidently hasn't forgotten the events of the last book. In polls, she is consistently voted a children's favourite, and over a million of her books are borrowed from libraries each year.
Jack's main problem is that he can never remember the password, and yet Susie always knows it.
He is so ashamed when Susie tells him what happened that he decides to play safe and stay away.
She wrote over 600 children's books, including the bestselling "Famous Five" and "Secret Seven" series.Audiobooks are a tremendous way for girls and boys to take pleasure in tales, whether they are sound readers or just like a story read to them. It could have been rejected, deemed not good enough by the author or even just forgotten about by Miss Blyton, who famously claimed to churn out one book per week.
He can hardly be blamed for Susie's antics this time though, but one wonders what would have happened had he been present.This story has a few unexpected twists and turns. Jack also appears a bit absent minded at the start of this book and this is put down to examination pressures. They have two aims: to try and find the medals stolen from a general, and also to keep a look out for a gang who are taking birds' eggs in Bramley wood.
Barbara bravely tells the third baddie to 'clear off' but she has to run away to safety when he tries to grab her badge.A man comes to their rescue and says that the medals might be hidden in a tree. The old rule about the girls not going out at night is waived surprisingly, so they all participate in the climax of the adventure. I don't know why he has such a problem with Bony, but it seems the harmless French boy could have been the 'last straw'.But the worm will eventually turn. Then Pam puts her foot in it by remarking that it is a pity that Susie doesn't belong to the Secret Seven as she isn't afraid of anything and is really so clever. It is the end of the series as far as Susie goes, so she bows out in style.Review by David CookAfter three adventures in and around term time, finally a story set in the holidays. The trouble is that Enid never tells us which holiday it is but, as the following book takes place during the summer holidays and one of the Seven's tasks in this story is guarding the birds' nests in Bramley Woods from egg thieves, I think we can take an educated guess at Easter!This story starts with Peter acting entirely out of character by forgetting first the current password and then where he and Janet have put their badges, two misdeeds that he has chastised all the other members for throughout the series. Then, unusually, he phones all the other members to summon them to a meeting rather than delivering the usual notes.Of all the Secret Seven stories, this is the most contrived and unrealistic. So the Secret Seven cease to exist for a time, as they don't take on another member, not even Scamper.
Jack refuses to return even after an apology is sent, and Susie almost gets her wish to belong to a Secret Seven society, albeit her own, but Jack decides to go it alone.


One, as mentioned, is to watch out for egg thieves, and the other is to retrieve the medals stolen from Colin's neighbour, the elderly retired soldier, General Blanksome. The presence of Binkie and other girls in Susie's proposed 'Secret Seven' (Mark 2) was probably too much for him, and it is not mentioned again.A dog stealer is at work and the shepherd's dog is stolen. The scene where Colin, moved by the General's plight, promises to get the medals back is well written and touching, but the events that follow do not ring true, hanging as they do on a totally unbelievable character.This is Tom Smith, who comes to the aid of Jack, Barbara and George when they are set upon by a gang of boys stealing eggs. Peter says that they've never come up against a dog-stealer before, but we know better (Go ahead Secret Seven).
Tom puts the gang to flight and then pools his food with the three he has rescued in a joint picnic. George almost gets his marching orders as well when he starts to mock Peter in a hollow kind of voice. On hearing Colin's story and that the only clue to the break-in is that the burglar must have small hands, Tom announces that he may have a clue and relates a story of how he saw a man creep into the woods and thrust a box into a small hole in a tree. He was also interrupting Peter, which is unusual for George who usually waits his turn to speak.In another shock, Scamper disappears as well, although Susie thinks he has just run away from Peter!The mystery is difficult to solve. When the SS members ask where the tree is, Tom adopts a 'rough' voice and demands why should he tell them and suggests they share the ?50 reward, ?40 for him and ?10 for them if they help him retrieve it. They become desperate to do something and Colin's shadowing almost leads him into trouble, a la George (in the fifth book). It's the sort of juicy mystery the Find-Outers would have liked to get their teeth into I think. With only three chapters to go it doesn't look as if the society members will be able to solve it, and, strictly speaking, they don't.Review by David CookFrom starting the series by giving the Seven an adventure each holiday, latterly Enid was giving them one each month! This takes place in December and the gardener refers Peter and Janet to 'last month' when they had to remove onions from their shed referred to two books back in Secret Seven Fireworks! This occurs when, because the weather is especially cold, the gardener is installing a 'safety first' stove in their shed. The story starts in term time but carries on into the Christmas holidays and concerns, for the second time, dog thieves, though Peter has forgotten the events of Go Ahead, Secret Seven because he says that, despite all their many mysteries, they'd never "come up against a dog stealer before"!This excellent story is a whodunnit, the first since Secret Seven Adventure, and as good as a Find-Outers story. Indeed, the thief uses the same ruse as did the Find-Outers' Invisible Thief to throw suspicion elsewhere.
It is full of interesting, well-drawn characters, Susie, Binkie, Matt the shepherd and his sheepdog, Shadow, and the gifted French boy, Bony.
Peter has a huge tantrum, which results in Jack resigning from the Seven and managing to solve the mystery alone. There are many clues, suspects, and red herrings and, unlike some of the Find-Outers stories, the culprit doesn't display obviously unlikeable traits — it's quite a shock to discover his identity. The story is totally believable except for one thing I'm sure the culprit's employers would, in real life, have supervised his doings more closely.
