Thanks, Beecharmer. I am off to read the rest of the stories now. Whom is Sooty please? Is Fatty / Freddie from Five Find Outers and Dog please? It is so long since I read the books I can't remember if there was a dog and what his name was.



Author's Response: Thanks Chair, and yes, Fatty is Freddie Trottville from Five Findouters. Sooty is from Five go to Smugglers Top, and I think he also shows up somewhere else in the Famous Five Stories. You have reminded me I was going to do a proper character list, so I will do so somewhere !

Thanks, Alison. I've just finished this and I'm glad everyone saw what a great job Primula did. I'm sorry EBD mostly ignored and forgot about her.

Thanks, Mia. I guess Jem forgot to give him the cheque after the meal earlier in the week.


Also, are timelines switched round here? I thought Daphne was close in age to Cecil which would mean she was born when the School was in Switzerland and not on St. Briavels.



Author's Response: The school is in Switzerland honey

Thanks, Mia. I think I am imagining things, but Daniel's name sounds familiar.

Thanks, Mia. I felt so sorry for Jackie. I guess EBD had no idea about the War when she wrote Jo Returns.
