Changing “Famous Five” Book Covers

Here’s an interesting post on the Telegraph website, about the changing cover designs of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books in the UK.

I’m not so familiar with these books, but I imagine them comparable to the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books in North America, which have also undergone extensive rewrites, redesigns and upgradings over the years.

It’s always interesting to see what adults think will appeal to ‘modern’ children…
