The Secret Seven v. The Famous Five

Have just realised that the Secret Seven had 'SS' written on their door. Tee hee.

What are people's feelings in re the Secret Seven? Cuz I never actually liked them as much as, say, the Famous Five. It was the whole having a club to find mysteries, and then going out and finding them thing. It just seemed a bit desperate compared to the FF who were just larking about on exciting holidays and stumbled across them. The FF were having exciting fun anyway, on account of being on groovy holidays on islands or in gypsy caravans, whereas the SS seemed to do all their detecting in between prep and tea.

Ah, Five Go to Finniston Farm... a fine book indeed. There was a midden. For some reason, this always made me happy. Wasn't that how they knew there had been a castle there? It had all gone, and it was just the midden left. How cool is that? It's like archaeology for small children.
