This week, Prabhnoor Gangyan (Year 8) reviews children's classic The Naughtiest Girl in the School by Enid Blyton.
The Naughtiest Girl in the School is written by Enid Blyton and illustrated by Kate Hindley. Other notable works of Enid Blyton are the famous five series and the secret seven series. This book was published in 1940. This book falls under the category of fiction. The Naughtiest Girl in School is about a little girl whose name is Elizabeth Allen. She is a spoiled girl and is very rude and headstrong. She is sent away to boarding school (which Elizabeth hates) and she vowed to herself she would be rude and mean and get sent home, but she soon finds out that being bad at Whyteleafe school isn’t as easy as it seems…
This book is aimed at 9-14 year olds so tweens and teens. The setting of this book is mainly in a School and at the start, at Elizabeth’s house. When was the setting? In the first term of school for Whytealeafe. Some of the main characters would be Elizabeth who is rude and headstrong, Joan; a timid little girl and Rita and William who are the head girl and boy of Whyteleafe and are both wise and proud. We do see Elizabeth change in a very positive way throughout the book. This book teaches us that giving is way better than receiving. Also that it is not feeble or weak to change your mind once it is made up, it is feeble to not change your mind when you know you made the wrong decision.
I would rate this book 5 stars out of 5 stars. It is an awesome book, really heartwarming, funny and beautiful.
