Anyone interested in doing an Enid Blyton swap?

I would love, love, LOVE some Magic Faraway Tree goodies!

The Famous Five, the Secret Seven, the Wishing Chair, Malory Towers.. Oooh Smiley

I remember reading Enid Blyton as a kid but I can't for the life of me remember a thing about the books... except for something about a moon head.

I'll have to revisit them Smiley

Enid Blyton books were a fave when I was growing up Smiley  Amelia Jane?  The golliwogs?  Oh, and all the circus stories.  It would be a fab trip down memory lane to do a swap based on this theme Smiley

I think there was an interest thread before about this that I commented on... But I would still definitely be up for one, providing that timing was good. She actually lived on the same road as my Grandmother and went to my church when she was younger. Which is pretty cool if you ask me. Smiley

Moonface is from the Faraway Tree. Smiley it was my most most MOST favouritest book growing up.
I loved it so much I was obsessively careful with it and its in such good nic. I have to convince my Mum to part with it soon, as I have a two-and-a-half month old. Smiley

Oh I totally forgot about naughty Amelia Jane!

Depending on the specs, I'd be interested in this one. I was the only one in our school (mind, we had 10-20 kids in entire school), who read and loved Enid Blyton. Remember those picnics of Famous Five? Mmm, ginger ale...

Oh, I love this! In 3rd grade, my teacher and the teacher in the next classroom would trade Wednesdays and read about the faraway tree to us. Sadly, I don't have my own books. I would looooove to, but I can't find them anywhere (at least, none that don't cost an arm and a leg). I'll have to check my library again...

If I can find the books, and the timing is right, I would be interested.

Oh I would love to join this swap, Magic Faraway Tree is my favourite *the land of birthdays - sigh*....but I just joined the Deathly Hallows swap.

If it could be held off till the start of July I would totally be in on it Smiley....if not, I guess I'd have to wait for another.
