Famous Five – Target Age

May 10, 2014 – Jan j says: I would like to know what age group these books were aimed for. I was always a reader as a child but have no recollection of Enid or her books. Were different series for children of different ages?
Bets says... Bets says: The best thing about Blyton's work is that no specific age groups are mentioned. Any child can read them at any time. However, most 10 year olds should find the Famous Five enjoyable, while 12+s might find the Adventure series more appealing.
