    Yes I did Collected all 21 some new but most from carboot sales, Infact I read them so much I wore out a few copies, also loved the Secret Seven, Five find outers,the adventure series,Malory Towers, and St Claires.

    My first Enid Blyton books were The Magic Faraway tree,The wishing chair and the fantastic Mr. Meddle
    Hours of fun especially in bed after lights out reading by torch light with plans of sneaking down for midnight feasts

    I had all 21 books as well and like HUggie I think I wore quite a few of them out. I always remember my favourite one was number 9 but for the life of me I can't remember the title of it.

    I also had Mr Meddle books and Mr (somebody I can't remember the name of) - but he was a fat jolly fellow. Bugging me now what his name was...ARRGH!

    Was it Mr Twiddle?

    Oh yeah, had the Secret 7's too but I always found them inferior to Famous 5.

    Just discovered that number 9 was 'Five Fall into Adventure', after reading the plot it has all come flooding back to me.

    Anybody else watch the Famous Five TV series made by TVS, shown in the 70's?

    Yep watched the series too, also owned it on video, but for me a tv series can never live up to the book and the pictures your own imagination draws up. You somehow tend to get caught up in a book.
    Although i did enjoy the series I also felt slightly disappointed

    I've got all 21 books, with the 1970's tv series covers. I collected them again after losing them all after my nephew borrowed them and my brother in law chucked them out.

    I've also got the Purnell annuals that were published in the late 70s - early 80's.

    I used to watch the TVS series too and have one episode on video.

    I used to read the Secret Seven too.
    The only thing to look forward to is the past
