The Secret Island

The Secret Island

by Enid Blyton (Basil Blackwell, 1938)

Book cover: “The Secret Island” by Enid Blyton

Blyton’s first full-length adventure novel is low on peril but pleasantly diverting, and more substantial than later efforts. Pitched at younger readers, it sees four children run away to fend for themselves on a bountiful island—memorably taking a cow with them!
