Feb 05, Melissainau rated it it was ok Shelves: This is the first of the "second" Malory Towers series - six books written not by Enid Blyton but by "Pamela Cox" which may be a pseudonym for a group of authors. Where the first set of books had a certain charm about them, I found the second set repetitive to the point of dullness. The few fun new ideas that were there weren't explored sufficiently due to the very prescribed format of the novels.
In fairness, the fifth and sixth books 11 and 12 in the series were probably the best of the lot This is the first of the "second" Malory Towers series - six books written not by Enid Blyton but by "Pamela Cox" which may be a pseudonym for a group of authors.
In fairness, the fifth and sixth books 11 and 12 in the series were probably the best of the lot. OK, I am an adult reader, and a reasonably picky one.
But I enjoyed reading the first set with my 12 year old daughter and encourage my 7 year old to explore them as well. Aug 11, Denise rated it really liked it Shelves: Published 6 decades after the original Malory Towers books by Enid Blyton, these new sequels had quite a lot to live up to.
Focusing on Felicity Rivers, Darrell's younger sister, and the girls in her form, this was a lovely read in a very similar style to Blyton's writing with just the same feel to it. Looking forward to reading the rest of the new books. Nov 03, Preeti Nair rated it it was amazing.
Went back in time. Thoroughly enjoyed. May 14, Angela rated it really liked it. A really good sequel to the original Malory Towers books. It's been written "nearly" in the same style as Enid Blyton, though there was one instance which stood out as not in the same vein. This was the phrase "I'd have told him where to get off". Hmmm, not quite in keeping!
A worthy extension to the original stories. This book fits in well with the original stories by Enid Blyton. It's written in the same style and I could almost believe they were written by Blyton herself. I loved the Malory Towers books when I was growing up, and it was a nice trip down memory lane to read this. Nov 18, Christywongcy Wong rated it it was amazing.

This year, Felicity goes to boarding school, Malory Towers, as Darrell heads off to college. Felicity has fun with Susan, her best friend, but Bonnie, Felicity's neighbor, finds Felicity her very best friend. Bonnie and Susan both hate each other making Felicity the one to choose. Bonnie thinks that Susan is ruining their friendship, while Susan and Felicity thinks vice versa.
When Felicity had to leave for school and pick This book is about sisters Felicity and Darrell going to boarding school. When Felicity had to leave for school and pick up Susan, Bonnie was sobbing and crying as she wanted Felicity without Susan. When they arrived Malory Towers, they saw June with another girl, which Felicity supposed as a new girl.
There were 2 new girls and 1 girl left down from the upper form. The second day, Bonnie appeared at the dining room during breakfast. Susan almost choked, Felicity felt sick.
They whispered to each other about why Bonnie is here, while Bonnie saw Felicity and ran towards the third form dining table. She explained to them that her parents couldn't resist her as she kept crying when Felicity was gone, so her parents sent her to school with Felicity. Veronica, the girl left down, made friends with this new girl called Amy, and bragged to her since she has been in the third form longer than the others, she will definitely be assigned head girl.
Miss Peters, the third form mistress, announced that the head girl of the third form is to be Felicity. Veronica was shocked and told Amy that she only got the place because Darrell was head girl if the whole school last year. Amy didn't look convinced. Felicity told Bonnie to do a favor for her, to befriend with Amy as she and Amy had more in common rather than with Veronica.
Susan helped Felicity with her duty and they both enjoyed themselves. They played some pranks on Madame Dupont, the French mistress, and enjoyed their term. Feb 05, Kelly rated it it was amazing. Back into by rereads of Malory Towers! I know I've said it before, but I was so happy when these first came out so I knew how Felicity's story and time at the school ended.
But it's been a while. However, they do blend together well and it was so easy to get back into life at the school- the continuity of the teachers for example, is very obviously meant to be them a Back into by rereads of Malory Towers! Also, as Felicity and her form were featured more in the final two books of Darrell's time, it was a nice and easy progression. This is their third year at Malory Towers, and it never felt to me as though it were a copy or fanfiction of the original series.
There is also the nostalgia of having Darrell and Sally there in the opening couple of pages, which was a nice touch, along with other old characters mentioned. Bill and Clarissa have finally opened their riding school near to Malory and they do feature in the next book.
I'm excited to read that again! But there really is the care and attention to detail throughout these 'newer' books from characters old and new that do make them feel as though they are all just one big series. Dec 29, Ariya rated it it was amazing. Talk about surprises at every corner. Just when you think it's over, June plays another outrageous prank, or another surprising secret is revealed about one of the girls.
While Enid Blyton's books have some seemingly cliche plots and characters emphasis on seemingly , she puts her own twist in each of them that makes them stand out from the others.
Every snobby girl has her own story and turnout. Every girl has their own moments of failure or disappointment. The best part is that everyone is full Talk about surprises at every corner. The best part is that everyone is full of flaws. They feel human. They're just like regular people, with their own quirks. It's simply 'wizard' to see an author make such brilliantly flawed characters. Millicent and June clash in "Fun and Games at Malory Towers" when girls must choose between music and sport.
The eleventh book, Secrets at Malory Towers , sees the return of a familiar face from the second book: Jo, a girl who was expelled back when Felicity was in the second form, returns as Alice. It also sees the return of Gwendoline Lacey. Blyton wrote two other series about life at a boarding school, St.
Clare's and the Naughtiest Girl series. Darrell Rivers is the main character of the first six books.
She is hot tempered and this causes her many problems, but she learns to control it as she goes up the school, and she is also a very responsible, hard-working girl.
She is very popular with her form, as is her best friend Sally Hope. When she gets into the upper school she becomes head-girl of the fourth form, games captain in the fifth and finally, in sixth form, Head Girl of the school. As she gets older at Malory Towers she begins to realise her talent for writing and goes on to be a writer. She is very well known in the school and was looked up to by all the smaller children in her time as Head Girl.
Gwendoline Lacey was a silly girl, always thinking that she was good, even when she was doing the wrong things. Alicia especially liked to pick on her, making Gwen Gwendoline's nickname both afraid and angry towards her. Her attitude only changed when her father fell very sick during her last term, and she was told that he will die. Realizing that she had to stop being so fussy about things, she starts to wonder about her dreadful future. She had wished to go for a university overseas, but since her father had lost his job, she will have to live poorly, and go for a local one.
Alicia Johns was the form joker. There was no end to the tricks she played on the poor teachers. Although she was very popular because of her pranks and jokes she was also very sharp-tongued and scornful of those less talented or healthy than her. She had a very quick brain and if she really worked hard at something then it would be amazing however, she was far too busy playing the fool. Her years at Malory Towers did soften her and she became less sharp-tongued and hard. She was never given any role of responsibility because she was far too fond of playing the fool.
Sally Hope was Darrell's best friend. Although at first she was very odd and quiet because of troubles at home, she soon blossomed into a calm, responsible young lady. The troubles at home were all because Sally was jealous of her younger sister, Daffy, for taking all her parents' attention.
Poor Sally was so upset that she thought her parents sent her away to Malory Tower because they didn't want her. The issue was resolved when Sally fell ill and her parents left the baby at home and came all the way down to Cornwall, which was where the school was, to see Sally. Convinced that her parents did love her, she turned into a much nicer and happier girl and soon Sally and Darrell became best friends.
Jealousy had always been an issue with Sally and she tried hard to get rid of it while she was at Malory Towers. In second form she became head girl and then in the sixth became games captain. Betty was Alicia's best friend from a different tower and she was very similar to Alicia, that's why Miss Grayling the head mistress wouldn't let Betty move into Alicia's tower. What did she see in them? Darrell wondered.
Did she see the bad - and the good? Did she see which girls could be trusted and which couldn't? Did she know which of them would accept responsibility and do well in the school, and which would be failures? Miss Grayling spoke to each girl in her low, clear voice, asking their names and forms.
Then she addressed them all gravely. Darrell listened as intently as the youngsters, remembering the words from six years back. T want you all to iisten to me for a minute or two. One clay you will leave this school and go out into the world as young women.
You should take with you eager minds, kind hearts and a will to help.
You should take with you a good understanding of many things and a willingness to accept responsibility, and show yourselves as women to be loved and trusted. All these things you will be able to learn at Malory Towers - if you will. Our failures are ihose who do not learn these things in the years they are here. Were they making up their minds, as she had once done, that they would each be one of Malory Towers' successes?
The five girls hardly breathed as they gazed at Miss Grayling and listened. She looked across at Darrell, who was listening with as much attention as the youngsters. You said, "You will all get a tremendous lot out of your time at Malory Towers.
See that you give a lot back.
Girls, six years ago I said those words to Darrell. She is one who has got a great deal out of her time here - and there is no one who has given more back than Darrell has.
They couldn't imagine her standing as a twelve-year-old in front of Miss Grayling, hearing those same words. But Miss Grayling remembered very well. They were good stuff, she thought - likely to he the heads of forms and captains ol games - and possibly head-girls of the future. Darrell turned to go too. She felt herself blushing, she had been so pleased at Miss Grayling's words about her.
She looked shyly at the Head. Sally is another, and so is Mary-Lou. I think there is only one sad failure, real failure, in your form. And she has only this one term to change herself.
You know who it is J mean. Her mother wanted one thing, her father another. Her father, of course, is right. But I hear that he has had to give way in the matter. Darrell, if you possibly can, I want you to try and influence Gwendoline so that she will come round to her father's point of view. Otherwise the family will be split in half, and there will be great unhappiness.
But it's impossible to move Gwen when she's determined to get her own way. She was one of the successes! She had always longed to be - but she had made mistakes, been unkind sometimes, lost her semper more times than she liked to remember - and had ruefully come to the conclusion that although she wasn't a failure, she wasn't a howling success either. But Miss Grayling seemed to think she was, so she must be.
Darrell held her head high, and went swinging along to the sixth-form classroom. She opened the door and went in quietly.
You have been working hard for the last two terms, so you should not find this term unduly hard - but you will have to keep at it! She badly wanted to pass the Higher well. She felt sure Sally would. As for Alicia and Betty, their quick brains and excellent memories would make success certain.
She glanced round at the other girls from the other- Towers, who would also be taking Higher. Yes - they w on Id probably all pass. They were a keen, hard- w i i king lot. Would it be loo difficult to leave me with a little better impression of your capabilities than I have at present?
She looked round at Maureen for sympathy.
She got none, for Maureen always delighted in seeing Gwen made uncomfortable. The others looked studiously into the distance, determined not to catch Gwen's eye or give her any chance ol speaking about her future school.
They felt certain they were going to get very very tired ol hearing about it. I hear that it has been left to you to decide, as you can take it next year if you want to? I shouldn't do myself justice. I intend to work at my games instead. I hope to be chosen for the Olympic Games next year, anyway. The girls from other Towers gaped at Amanda's forthright assertion. Go in for the Olympic Games! She must either be mad, or else alarmingly good at games!
Well, Amanda, you will find that the games side is very good here, fortunately for you - and very well run. Sally felt annoyed and half-amused. Moira felt angry. She glared at Amanda, making up her mind to take her down a few pegs as quickly as possible!
It had a most wonderful collection of scowls - though the finest were undoubtedly Gwen's! How Gwen wished she could get hold of that horrible hook of Belinda's! It's the way the wind blows in those trees over there, Miss Oakes - shusha, shusha, shusha - like that, it goes. And it made me.
She was never quite certain if Irene really did get as lost in her 'tunes' as she said she did, or if she at ted like this to make a diversion and cause laughter. Mam'zelle had often been amazed to find herself staring at pages of music notes, instead ol lists of French verbs. The French girl, Suzanne, had sat with her eyes hall- closed through the talk so far. Miss Oakes spoke to her suddenly and made her jump.
Are you listening? Miss Oakes looked surprised.
