My FAVOURITE series!!!

This series is my favourite... Enid Blyton is a very known and my favourite author. The way she writes is so good, it feels as if you are actually seeing the story happenning in front of you. In this book there are many instances which are so mysterious and adventurous. Many scenes are really interesting like the Alastasian dogs sleeping with the children and the donkey, one of the children is captured, the enemy captures all of the children, everyone is rescued and many more. The best part was when the children's best friend (Bill) comes to rescue them disguised as a helicopter pilot. There are so many wonderful scenes in this book. This book is a must read!!!!!

The Mountain of Adventure

I guess the Adventure Series of Enid Blyton are not much read as you don't always get them in the bookstores. But, if you ever get them, just buy it. Because, you'll find them amazing. The Mountain adventure goes like this: A stay in a remote farmhouse in Wales should be a quiet and peaceful holiday for Philip, Dinah, Jack and Lucy-Ann. And indeed, there seems little likelihood of any new adventures cropping up as they set out on a camping trip on donkey-back in search of the beautiful Vale of Butterflies. But when they become lost in the thick mountain mist, strange things start to happen. Before too long, the children discover a mountain stronghold that hides a bizarre and dangerous secret experiment — one whose culprits will stop at nothing to protect their sinister activities. An amazing book which provides you with lot of thrill. There are many twists and turns. But as usual, our characters win the battle(not a war).

The Mountain of Adventure

The mountain of adventure is a very interesting book in which four children, Mrs.Mannering and Bill set out for Wales. The four children, Philip, Dinah, Jack and Lucy-Ann go to the Vale of Butterflies with their guide David. On the way they have a lot of fun but they loose their track and they see wolves in the night and their guide runs away. Here the adventure begins. They find a new mountain. To find out what happens further read the book. In my opinion the book's amazing. The best character is Philip because he is brave and he manages everything properly. And he's a bit of fun.

THE MOUNTAIN OF ADVENTURE

What could be more exciting that a holiday in the lonely Welsh mountains, staying at a farm in a place called Doth-goth-oo-elli-othel-in (as enunciated by Bill) with a donkey each to ride about on? For once, Mrs Mannering (or Aunt Allie to Jack and Lucy-Ann) is determined to stick with Bill and the children to keep them out of adventure. Look you, now. Whateffer. I've read many complaints about the so-called Welsh lingo spoken in The Mountain of Adventure by Mrs Evans and her husband Effans. (So... is his name Effans Evans then? Unclear on that one.) It's true that Mrs Evans' neverending use of "look you" and "whateffer" throughout all her scenes does get on the nerves a bit, and Effans' broken English makes him sound like he's from a faraway country: "It iss very welcome you are. Will you pleass to come this way?" Then there's Trefor the shepherd, who introduces his brother David. David has been hired to provide donkeys and guidance for Bill, Allie, and the children so they can all ride up the mountain and camp out. Luckily David speaks no English at all, so we're spared further uses of "look you" and "whateffer" as he rides with the group up the mountain. But things go slight awry. Indeed to gootness, a door bangs shut and jams Aunt Allie's hand. Bill declares a doctor needs to take a look at it (the hand, not the door) so he whisks her off to the hospital at once. Aunt Allie has broken a tiny bone in the back of her hand, and she returns to the farmhouse bandaged up and looking apologetic. Since she has to return to the hospital in a few days' time, she and Bill urge the children to go off up the mountain without them. David will be their guide, so what can possibly go wrong? Plenty. They set off, heading for the Vale of Butterflies. The weather is beautiful and the views from the mountain truly amazing. They travel until evening, then camp for the night. Another perfect day follows, and they plod on up and through the mountains, finally resting for their second night under the stars. Tomorrow, David assures them by flapping his hands about and speaking in Welsh, they will arrive at the Vale of Butterflies. But when they awake in the morning, the weather has turned and now clouds hang heavily about the mountain. Shrouded in a gloomy fog, David finally admits he's lost his way. The party set up camp for the third night, a little dejected. That night, David hears "noises" and is scared... On the fourth day they forge on. Now David is very reluctant to continue, but the children don't want to turn back. If adventures could attract certain people with some kind of magnetic pull, this would be the case here! That fourth night is spent at the foot of the very mountain the rest of the story takes place around, amidst the frightening and unusual sound of wolves! On the fifth morning, David sees something and freaks out. He cowers on the ground with his hands over his face and shouts, "Black, black, black!" Moments later he's off, "speeding" down the mountain with most of the donkeys. The scene is set! Lost in the mountains with no way to carry all their stuff home, a pack of wolves roaming about, a mysterious puff of red smoke from time to time... and to top it all, a mountain that rumbles and shakes on occasion. Jack reasons that David will go straight back to the farmhouse and Bill will immediately come and find them. And so each day afterwards they wonder... will Bill arrive soon? I couldn't help thinking that it took them four days to get there, so even if David hurried home, it would be at least two or three days back and then a further two or three days for Bill to arrive. And I had trouble picturing David – who freaked out and rushed off in a panic – continuing to panic all the way home. Surely he'd stop to think, "Well, you know, the moment I get home, that Bill fellow will make me show him the way back to where the children are... " I somehow couldn't see him being so silly and irrational and feeble-minded as to think he could just go home and forget the whole thing. Didn't he worry about facing Bill and Allie's anger at leaving the children alone on a mountain with just one donkey and no guide? Lucy-Ann shows true mettle in this book – not once, but twice. The first time is when she raises a stick to protect Philip from the "attacking wolves" – which turn out to be around ten Alsations. She's a brick, that Lucy-Ann! The Alsations belong to a man who works in the mountain. That's right – IN the mountain. When Philip is taken prisoner by the bad man with the dogs, he seems to vanish into thin air... but upon investigation, Lucy-Ann discovers a curtain of foliage that hangs in front of a crack in the rocky wall. A cave! To reveal what's going on inside the mountain might spoil things a little for those who want to read the book "fresh-minded" again. But I will say there's a mad "king" and his henchmen, plus a bunch of paratroopers, who are trying out a new experiment that will, to

The Mountain Of Adventure

What could be more EXCITING than a holiday in a Welsh Mountain all alone?? This series by Enid Blyton is worth a read. The children are quite excited for their peaceful holiday in the mountains BUT they are quite sorry as their mother(or aunt for jack and lucy)has a tiny fracture on her hand and Bill has to stay behind with her. So, David was chosen to be the guide. What possibly could go wrong?. but they are quite shocked when an adventure comes knocking on their door.. Let's see how do they solve their mystery..
