    One thought on “The Naughtiest Girl in the School”

    1. Forget 1984 and Animal Farm - if you thought that was scary, you should read The Naughtiest Girl in the School. In this Stalinisque exposé of life under a brutal regime, we see the conversion of little Elizabeth Allen from a normal little girl to one who learns how to knuckle down to the system and praise it.Elizabeth is a pretty eleven year old little girl who has spurts of fun and laughter, like any normal little girl. She is given to a bit of naughtiness (like pinning her governess' stocking [...]

    2. A rather delightful little tale of a quite extraordinary little girl and the somewhat bizarre school she is sent to

    3. I missed this in my childhood, but my daughter got a copy for Christmas. My 5 year old daughter and 6 year old son both loved it and we all cried at one point. lovely to share at this age.

    4. Elizabeth Allen is a horrid, spoiled brat. Her parents send her to Whyteleafe, a school with Socialist and sadistic tendencies that strips her of her foolish pride and transforms her into a sensible, loving, moral, typically British schoolgirl. I read my mother's childhood copy of this book (printed on flimsy, WWII-era paper) when I first visited England. I spent the rest of my childhood rereading it and writing parodies of it.

    5. The Naughtiest Girl in SchoolI bought a couple of Blyton’s books a couple of years ago because I thought that I might have missed out not having had the chance to read them when I was a child. I never got around to reading them until one Friday afternoon a couple of weeks ago. The books all seem a bit formulaic and I had to constantly remind myself that they were written at a totally different time in a rather different society. Nevertheless I couldn’t shake the conflicting feelings about th [...]

    6. Of all Ms Blyton's school series, the Whytleafe School series featuring Elizabeth Allen have remain personal favorites since I read them about three decades ago. Even when I was young, the notion of student based bodies - students bringing problems and students solving it themselves in a common forum - made a deep impression on me. There are also socialistic tendencies around everyone getting an equal share of money which also seemed to be so right to me. So to me, the Naughtiest Girl series was [...]

    7. A Elizabeth é uma menina mimada e traquinas (e muito rica) que apenas com a aparência encanta qualquer um. A mãe e o pai têm que ir para fora e sua precetora, a Miss Scot , já não a aguenta, portanto a sua única alternativa é ir para um colégio. Se queres saber se a nossa Elizabeth quer ou não ir ficar ou não ficar no colégio, tens que ler este livro. Acredita é uma caixa de surpresas!!! ;-P <3

    8. Meh. Not Blyton's best, despite the catchy title and the appealing cover. I still like The Twins at St Clare's series the best.

    9. I love all Enid Blyton book, this is one of them. The Naughtiest Girl in the School has so many good points. It teach us about kindness, sharing, honesty and friendship. Elizabeth Allen is a pretty and smart little girl who been entered to boarding school by her mother. It’s the first time for her because she take homeschooling before. She doesn’t feel happy about this so she decides to be the naughty student so she gets sent home. But the more time she spends there, the more she likes and h [...]

    10. Not a series I read much of as a child. This is once again a boarding school themed book where our ‘heroine’ Elizabeth Allen is (as some of EB’s other children) unwilling to go to school and determined to get herself thrown out at the earliest possible moment. But Whyteleaf school itself is probably the most radical of EB’s schools—the children are a lot freer, have a broader range of activities, can have pets, and most of its business is through a system of self-government where the s [...]

    11. The very first "proper" book I ever read. I think I was maybe 7 or 8 years old. It has lead to 35 yrs of reading with a passion, 1000s of books many I'll never remember reading but this one I'll never forget. I can even remember the point in time when I finished it, where I was at home and how proud I was of myself. Most importantly how proud my dad was of me. He too had a passion for reading and loved books. Apologies to those reading this expecting a review and not my trip down memory lane Nev [...]

    12. این کتاب را بیشتر به واسطه مترجمش جناب گلکار خواندم. شاید چند سالی دیر آن را خواندم. البته روی کتاب هم قید شده است که برای رده کودکان و نوجوانان. داستانش از دغدغه های این روزها خیلی فاصله دارد. شاید برای 8 تا 13 سال بد نباشد.

    13. My daughter has really enjoyed this as a chapter book for bedtime reading, thanks to myself enjoying a trip down memory lane she's been up later than usual for "one more chapter" on many a night. I love that my children love books as much as me

    14. Selalu suka rasanya tiap baca ulang karya Enid Blyton yang satu ini. Ada beberapa novelnya yang bercerita tentang sekolah asrama tapi seri Si Badung masih menjadi favorit saya.Saya nyaris berkaca-kaca saat membaca bagian Joan dan ibunya saling mengungkapkan perasaan, dan itu berkat Elizabeth yang karakternya unik dan bikin saya gemes juga mesem-mesem sama ulahnya.Saya suka konsep sekolahnya. Meski entah mengapa saya kok rasanya agak gimana gitu kalau harus bahas keburukan tiap orang di sesi Rapa [...]

    15. Ahhh I adore this book! I used to read it all the time when I was a kid after my mum gave me the copy she had growing up. I've been in such a slump lately and thought I would read an older book to get me back into reading. I'd forgotten how cute the book actually is!!Four out of five stars but only recommended to people who are already fans of Enid Blyton's work, since this book is very different to children's literature of this day and age.

    16. Really enjoyed reading this c: Brilliant children's novel with great character development. I look forward to reading more in the series.

    17. I read some of Enid Blyton's book as a child but hadn't even heard of this series she wrote back in 1940. This is a book my daughter is reading and since I love the genre of Children's books, I picked this up. This book is really set on a wonderful pretense, children are made to behave not by strict adults governing their behavior but because they are judged and governed by their peers, other children.Elizabeth Allen is an awfully spoilt child, she is an only child, living a very privileged life [...]

    18. I really like this book. So I gave it FIVE STARS!!!But then I love all Enid Blyton books.Elizabeth Allen has never been to school before and she thinks she will hate it. But instead she loves it of course it took a few tricks and punishments but that's what makes all the more wonderful. In the beginning she made everyone think she was horrid but then she changed. I love how she becomes friends with Joan and tries to do nice things for her but in the wrong way unknowingly. She thought that she st [...]

    19. Elizabeth Allen is such a rude and provoking child that her governess quits and her parents, in despair, send her to boarding school. To punish them for sending her away, Elizabeth is determined to be the naughtiest girl in the school and thus be expelled as quickly as possible. Whyteleafe School is unusual because it is both co-ed and more or less self-governing (in an era where all schools in fiction were single sex and the teachers all powerful). The Head Boy and Girl are portrayed as so wise [...]

    20. Gue bacanya versi Indonesianyabuku2 blyton emang banyak pesen moralnya, menurut gue, kalo punya anak kecil ato adek kecil, drpd ditontonin sinetron2 indonesia yang ceritanya ga jelas boro2 mendidik, mending dikasi bacaan2 kaya buku2nya blyton giniBuku ini seinget gue ceritain gimana anak cewe yang tadinya annoying abis pelan2 berubah jadi anak yang lebih manis dan lebih disenengin temen2nya di sekolah barunya.p lahceritanya cukup deket dengan keseharian anak2, walopun settingnya di inggris

    21. The first book in the series. Elizabeth hates going to boarding school so much that she sabotages herself by being as impossibly naughty as she can, in the futile hope she will be sent home. But Whyteleaf is such a progressive, democratic school, whose leadership is so supportive of the young students, that in spite of herself she comes to love and respect her school and learns to enjoy the challenges and opportunities it presents. In my opinion this is the very best of Blyton's school stories, [...]

    22. Meskipun tema dan plotnya hampir senada dengan buku-buku Enid Blyton yang lain, terutama yang bertema Asrama seperti ini, namun tetep aja, kisahnya Enid Blyton bikin nagih. Ngomong-ngomong tentang badungnya yang ada dalam kisah ini masih kalah ya dengan badungnya bocah-bocah dari St. Clare. Hal yang menarik di sini adalah Rapat Besar, Enid Blyton membuat anak-anak dalam kisah ini tampak lebih bijaksana dan dewasa jadinya.

    23. Elizabeth emang bandel banget di sekolahnya. Sebenarnya dia baik hati kok. Bela-belain pake uang 1 poundsterling kiriman pamannya buat beliin Joan Kue Ultah paling besaaaaar dan mengirimkannya pada Joan atas pakai nama ibunya Joan. Joankan pengen banget dapat hadiah atau surat dari ibunya-yang ternyata gak pernah sebelumnya ia dapatkan.Karena kebandelannya Elizabeth sering dihukum deh.Ceritanya lucu dan kocak. Baca sendiri aja deh
