ImageI bought this on a car boot for 50p, remembering how I used to eagerly await Christmas morning for my annual treat. it was always my best present  and i thought surely I would remember the stories inside as I definitely would have been given this edition. Sadly, i didn’t recall any of the actual stories, although I remembered the Silent Three, a gang of school chums who went about donning hooded robes and solving crimes. I thought I’d find the tales naive, viewing them from the wisdom of my ‘mature’ perspective but I was just as enthralled as ever. So far it’s been my best Christmas reading. I see things in them that I never noticed as a child. Yes all the females are breastless, even the adults. Yes, the ethos is middle class and public school with slightly patronising overtones as each heroine champions a variety of underdogs but hey, these girls are full of confidence and initiative. You could say they kick ass. And yes, I’m showing my age but so what?
