I read Malory Towers with Darrell and Felicity Rivers, Sally, Alicia, the hateful Gwendoline and the two Mam'zelles - or were they in the Twins at St Claires? I loved those too. Constantly on loan from the local library in rotation although I eventually got the Mallory ones. How I longed to go to their school with the 4 towers and the original infinity pool.

I loved Dorita Fairlie Bruce, particularly the Dimsie books. Also Antonia Forest the Marlows and the Traitor), Malcolm Saville and all Angela Brazil. What a fantastic web-site. Have bookmarked for my birthday, am so sad that you can't borrow this type of book from my local libraries these days it's all teen titles now.

cupcakes..lol at mention of infinity pool!
Anyone remember the super sleuth double twin family, 'The Bobbsey Twins'? (Maybe not as they were American and introduced to me in the tropics by a mad missionary family.)
