This is the cover of my version of Malory Towers by E. Blyton. ( Circa 1986) Darrell Rivers, Sally Hope, Gwendoline, Alicia....do those names ring any bells yet? A week ago, I found a continuation of Malory Towers written by Pamela Cox. And this morning, I am reading my final book ( in my stash ) by Cox. I feel I now am in a position to say, these Cox-Blyton books are just as good as the original ones. Cox weaves in characters from the original series and brings them back to the school. This time, the series revolves around Darrell's little sister Felicity. The verdict is a resounding YES to whether these books are worth buying.
