    Enid Blyton is amazing person! She lived next door to a friend of my mums and they said she never really liked children!! Surprising isn’t it!! But she can sum up all the characters in a school perfectly! Fern is just a spoilt child and doesn’t understand what spiteful means.. she tries to wreck the third forms play but doesn’t quite manage to !!
