No topic like a good old topic.
I still like Swallowdale, mostly for its descriptions of Lakeland life and the poignant moment at the summit when they find the old tin box.
WDMTGTS also has much to admire,and I enjoy the gradual completion of the Secret Water map.
I also like Peter Duck, the first I ever read, mostly for the sailing down Channel scenes at the start and back again at the finish.
S&A, WH, PM and PP are all very enjoyable but not quite up to Swallowdale in my opinion but I never really took to the Norfolk pair in the same way.
I do like Great Northern? and prefer it to the Norfolk books and Missee Lee. The latter is probably too Peter Duckish for me. A bit ironic when Peter Duck isn't even in it!
