|The Secret of Cliff Castle
|George Newnes Ltd.
|adventure, fiction, juvenile
This is another of the Mary Pollock (alias Enid Blyton) books which would be more enjoyable to those younger Blyton fans who dote on the Secret Seven series where the endings involve Daddy and the Police. When I was in my Secret Seven phase I enjoyed The Secret of Cliff Castle because of its spookiness and the characters were ones with whom I could identify easily. The plot is strictly 'Formula' and any Blytoneer will be able to visualize certain aspects of the story before reaching Page #1. Castles are a staple of EB stories—there's Faynights Castle and the castle on Kirrin Island and the castle up the hill from Spring Cottage and Moon Castle and the Castle of Santa Claus and The Castle of the Red Goblin and The Giant's Castle and plenty of others dotted throughout the pages of Enid Blyton books.

Author Bio for Blyton, Enid
Enid Blyton (1897-1968) was a prolific English author of children's books. Born in London, she began writing while still in school. Her first attempts at writing were rejected by publishers which just made her more determined to succeed. She trained as a teacher and in her spare time continued to write. Her first book, a collection of poems, was published in 1922. Her first series of books, "Old Thatch", began in 1934 and eventually encompassed 28 books. In the 1940's she began to churn out books sometimes three or four per year. By the 1950's she was publishing upwards of 50 books per year. In all, she wrote over 750 books which sold over 600 million copies. While critics called her writing unimaginative and lacking literary merit, this did not stop her adoring fans from scooping her books off the shelf. Even after her death, her endearing stories continue to draw the rapt attention of children everywhere. (Enid Blyton Society)
