    One thought on “Six Cousins At Mistletoe Farm”

    1. Enid Blyton is now not very PC - and I can understand why. Her values are middle class conservative and she is quietly racist. However, it cannot be denied that she wrote wonderful stories.This novel is classic Country meets City - three city children of various age groups vs three country children. It is clear where the author's sympathies lie, but the interaction between them is described remarkably realistically. In the end, they end up transforming one another for the better (which means the [...]

    2. It's that time again: books from ma's house! This is one of many Enid Blyton books I owned, and I really loved this book in particular as a kid. Really loved it. So much, the pages are falling out of it. Basically, the jist is that three city kids go to live with their three cousins on a farm after their house burns down, where they get up to loads of shenanigans involving poaching, poetry and getting over a totally rational fear of fire. I really wanted to live on a farm, have amazing high teas [...]

    3. Jack, Jane and Susan of Mistletoe Farm are dismayed when they learn that their three town cousins, Cyril, Melisande and Roderick, are to stay with them indefinitely after their house burns down. An inevitable town mouse/country mouse conflict arises, but both sets of cousins eventually find that they can learn a lot from each other.Surly Jack receives a few lessons in chivalry from Cyril, who in turn learns to drop his pretentious dandy affectations. Jane, a dye-in-the-wool tomboy, begins to car [...]

    4. I don't think anyone could argue that this is Great Literature, but it is a book I remember with great affection because it showed me something I'd never realised before.There is a housekeeper who looks after the children, and through the whole book the reader sees this woman through the children's eyes - and comes to know her as a character.Right near the end of the book another adult character arrives at the farm. He's never met the housekeeper before, and sees her asleep in a chair in the kit [...]

    5. I would've enjoyed this book much more if Jack and Jane weren't absolutely annoying hypocritical mean kids. I don't get why Enid Blyton keeps writing these horrible children and then passing them off as wholesome. It's very discouraging.

    6. In my thirties, I recently had an urge to read some new-to-me Enid Blytons, and this is the first. It comes highly recommended, and I can see why. There is some very good characterisation, much of it simple but effective, as one might expect from this author. But there are some deeper ideas as well, beginning with the compelling interaction of Susan and Roderick - quietly getting along better with each other than their older siblings/cousins, and having a much deeper storyline - with some good m [...]

    7. After all this time, I still remember "Six COusins at Mistletoe Farm". I read this book a long, long time ago. I used to go to a Portuguese school when I was younger, and, as a young book curious bilingual girl who had barely finished *really* teaching herself how to read in English, a feat I've always been proud of, I remember feeling extremely compelled by the meagre section that existed in our little nook of a library. My school went from first to ninth grade, but I recall, maybe wrongly, tha [...]

    8. The sequel of this book was one of the first Enid Blyton books I ever read. And I was totally addicted to the book. This book I managed to read only after 4 years. But loved the book just for the characters who I liked so much from the second book. Now after 20 years, the book still has the very same magic. I was down with cold yesterday and the book gave me hours of delight and relief. This is a simpe fun story set in a farm that talks of relationship between a set of city bred cousins and thei [...]

    9. Three siblings used to town life are forced to stay with their country cousins in Mistletoe Farm, a large, rambling farmhouse. There is a lot of squabbling and bickering among the cousins before they finally settle down and learn from each other.

    10. Another fantastic Enid Blyton book suitable for children of all ages. The six cousins have to face many challenges to get along, but as always, things work out in the end. Haven't read this one in many years, but it is definitely a childhood favorite.

    11. This book was totally amazing, it transports you into another world. You really feel what all the characters are going through, it's an AWESOME book.

    12. For some reason, Luke didn't get 'into' this one - he tried 3 different times to read and it just didn't captivate him at all he has put it aside in order to read another Famous Five book

    13. I liked how the cousins didn't like each other at first and then they started to like each other. My favourite character was Susan, because she got on with Roderick the best. I enjoyed it!
