Read full description of the books:
Actually read all these seperately and the real gem here is The Mystery of the Missing Necklace. Perhaps because it was the first one of the Mystery series that I read I feel it is still the best. I was looking for something to read and my sister suggested "The Mystery of the Missing Eggcup", I misheard but found her battered copy with pages coming loose but all present. It is a the evocation of time and place that this story represents that bring back (false?) memories of an idyllic past when school summer holidays were 8 weeks long and endlessly sunny and hot. The arrival in town of a fair with attendant waxworks show and the excitement of the theft of a beautiful pearl necklace give the Five plenty to think about. Fatty offers a prize for anyone who can spot him in disguise at the fair and later is passed a message, possibly from one of the thieves. This leads to a stake-out of a bench on the village street and fun searching for a bicycle with a hooter rather than a bell. Fatty's epic cycle chase with PC Goon following a gang member leads to some triumphalism from the inept policeman and there's a thrilling climax involving the waxworks.

Read information about the authorEnid Mary Blyton (1897 - 1968) was an English author of children's books.
Born in South London, Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to editor Hugh Pollock, with whom she had two daughters. This marriage ended in divorce, and Blyton remarried in 1943, to surgeon Kenneth Fraser Darrell Waters. She died in 1968, one year after her second husband.
Blyton was a prolific author of children's books, who penned an estimated 800 books over about 40 years. Her stories were often either children's adventure and mystery stories, or fantasies involving magic. Notable series include: The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Five Find-Outers, Noddy, The Wishing Chair, Mallory Towers, and St. Clare's.
According to the Index Translationum, Blyton was the fifth most popular author in the world in 2007, coming after Lenin but ahead of Shakespeare.
