Following the Famous Five 70th anniversary celebrations, another classic Blyton series gets a brand-new look for today's readers from the ever-popular Tony Ross. In their first adventure, the gang are dressed in disguise, following a lead to a spooky old house in the snow .
Each book features rarely seen bonus Blyton: extra stories, a quiz, additional artwork and insights into Blyton's life and writing process.
Enid Blyton, 1897-1968, wrote over 600 books for children, and is still regarded as one of the most popular of all children's writers. It's their very first adventure, and the Secret Seven super-sleuths are already on the trail of some really weird clues. Peter , Jack , Janet , George, Pam ,Barbara,Scamper and Colin are the main characters of the Secret Seven.

They meet every holiday in the shed at the bottom of Peter and Janet's garden - and solve mysteries, and eat lots of delicious food. In the 2008 Costa Book Awards, Enid Blyton was voted the best-loved author, ahead of JK Rowling and Shakespeare. It's snowing and the Seven are dressed in disguise, following a lead to a spooky old house - and a mystery. Her books are translated into more than 90 languages, and have been adapted for film and TV. I loved being transported back to a story I read as a child, remembering the characters and the storyline. But when they realise they're on the trail of a dangerous gang, the Seven don't feel quite so brave.

In 2012, Hodder Children's Books celebrated the 70th anniversary of the first publication of the Famous Five by reissuing the first five titles, in aid of the charity House of Illustration, with new covers by Quentin Blake, Chris Riddell, Emma Chichester Clark, Oliver Jeffers and Helen Oxenbury. It also means I am one book closer to my goal of 40 books, and one book in to my challenge to read all the Secret Seven books this year.
