macloudt, its a pretty awesome job. I loved the Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew. I also read the Trixie Belden books- mysteries that are a little more realistic. But what are The Famous Five Books? I've never heard of them.
The Famous Five books are a series of adventure/mystery books by Enid Blyton featuring five friends - Julian, Anne, Dick and George and their dog whose name I can't remember (Timmy?) - until I started writing that sentence I wouldn't have said I could remember any of their names!

My favourite children's books are the Mr Men by Roger Hargreaves. It was made into a TV series voiced by Arthur Lowe which was just fantastic. There's a new cartoon series now, but I haven't seen that. I read the stories to my kids now and I have the original series on DVD so my kids get to watch that

Mr Quiet still makes me well up a little.
