Famous Five, Pepys card game - 1978
The Famous Five Card Game by Enid Blyton (1897-1968) was illustrated by Eileen A. Soper and published by Pepys Games (Castell Brothers Limited), 14-17 St Cross Street, Hatton Garden, London E.C.1. in 1951. The card game is based on the Famous Five series of adventure books written by Enid Blyton for boys and girls, and depicts stories from four of the favourite books in the series. Blyton's total literary output was of an estimated 800 books over roughly 40 years. Some critics feel that Blyton's stereotyped depictions of gender, race and social class, coupled with a restricted use of language militates against the development of wider literary qualities in her readership.
