The Naughtiest Girl: Naughtiest Girl In The School: Book 1
About this deal
I agree with Poppy's comment about wondering if whoever made such changes is just trying to make the story their own? If they think they could have done a better job, why haven't they written their own best selling novel? Richard Watson - A talented musician who plays both piano and violin beautifully and plans to become a famous musician one day. He played duets with Elizabeth at the school concert
But I have also heard other less extreme experts say (quite reasonably, I think) that too much reliance on low-fat foods can actually contribute to obesity, because that food has had parts of it taken out, and so it's less filling and less satisfying, and thus we crave more, and eat more - and in the long run it makes us fatter than if we just ate an "old-style" diet. And maybe people in the old days were better at moderation, too: they may have had "fattening" foods, but only so much, and no more - whereas some today will stuff themselves full of whatever it is they like - with the quite expected results in the long run. Moderation seems to be less of a quality nowadays. The next chapter is entitled — Elizabeth has a Bad Time and that's about it. Privileges have been taken from her, life is hard. There is a little respite when she is allowed to practice a piano-duet with one of the big boys whose name is Richard Watson even though her actual piano tutoring has been denied her whilst she is in disgrace. She wants to recover her privileges however so she makes an attempt at being a bit good and her class-mistress is delighted. Her friendship with Joan is growing and she's even expressed an interest in helping John Terry with the gardening. Anita Bensoussane wrote:Are teachers allowed to use corporal punishment at your school, Ming? Pupils were caned when I was at school (though I avoided it, partly through behaving myself and partly through not getting caught if I didn't! ). However, caning was used sparingly and was abolished in Britain in 1987.
Robert is the main antagonist of the book, he was a bully because he had been jealous of his younger brothers, who has been given more attention, and everyone forgot about him. He is also fond of riding and is in charge of horses. He changes his attitude and becomes a friend of Elizabeth's. When I was a child in Sheffield in the early / mid 1980's a friend of my parents told me that she had met one of Enid Blyton's brothers and he was living in Sheffield. William and Rita are the head children at Whyteleafe School. They are very understanding and kind and firm in a way. They are well known and highly appreciated around the school. they are the judges at the school meetings and they are also looked up at by almost all the students.
Elizabeth Allen is spoilt and selfish. When's she's sent away to boarding school she makes up her mind to be the naughtiest pupil there's ever been! But Elizabeth soon finds out that being bad isn't as simple as it seems ... The unique nature of Whyteleafe and the engaging character of Elizabeth sweep readers into a world that is at once cosy and unexpected. W. Lindsay Cable and Kenneth Lovell were the original illustrators of the books. Blyton also wrote a short story, and six new books were written by Anne Digby in 1999-2000. Naughtiest Girl Books, Stories and Games It's interesting that the Famous Five books are renowned for the sumptuous food the Five regularly eat, so you might think (if you weren't familiar with the books) that surely the Five must be eating really fine food - of the elaborate sort found in expensive restaurants, or featured in some of the television cooking shows. But really, when you look at the items in that list, most of them are really quite ordinary foods of the sort that most of us probably eat quite regularly - and it becomes clear that Enid Blyton has the ability to make quite ordinary things (food, and probably lots of other things too) seem quite exciting and wonderful.

Michael was Joan's twin brother who died from an illness while Joan survived. As a result, Joan's parents ignored her until Elizabeth's actions instigated a meeting and Joan's mother told Joan the truth at Whyteleafe. Michael was described as "bonny and laughing" while Joan was described as "sulky and selfish" and Joan's parents couldn't help loving him more as they always wanted a boy and didn't care much for girls. Some people may frown on the Famous Five books - but really, they aren't such a bad role model for children at all: they are physically active, have decent values and consideration for other people, and I would say their diet is pretty wholesome on the whole, although showing no concern for reams of food "rules". If I had kids and they'd turned out like that, I'd feel pretty pleased, and satisfied that I hadn't done too bad a job of bringing them up. One thing that makes this book a little different from the other school series is that there's little mention of other classes so Whyteleafe School may be rather small and select. It was in fact once a country house so perhaps there's not all that much room for other grades but you never know. Maybe the follow-up books will enlighten us more. The Naughtiest Girl is actually the first of the school-life books and as the years went by the author introduced more into the stable and rounded the theme out a little by creating many characters in the form of teachers and children who became much-loved and well-remembered — this was amply demonstrated in the St. Clare's and Malory Towers books.
