Malory Towers Series

by
  • (54 reviews)

    Enid Blyton’s Malory Towers books have delighted children all over the world ever since the first book was published in 1946. 

    Malory Towers is set in a picturesque girls’ boarding school on the coast of Cornwall, just after the end of the Second World War. The books follow the trials, tribulations and adventures of pupil Darrell Rivers and her friends. At the start of the series, Darrell is a new girl at the school, full of good resolutions and the series follows her adventures at Malory Towers - the pranks, the midnight feasts, her best friends and her worst enemies.

    The original series was six novels and in 2009 six more books were added by author Pamela Cox, about Darrell’s younger sister Felicity. You can read the books out of order, but we do recommend starting with book one First Term at Malory Towers. 

    Enid Blyton books are nostalgic favourites for many parents, but the books have also had a new lease of life since they were adapted into a Malory Towers CBBC series. Fans of Jacqueline Wilson and school stories aged 8+ will love these books
