In Enid Blyton world, the child sleuths lived in houses that always boasted a box-room and playroom upstairs with a cook, a maid and a grumpy gardener.
The village postie, baker, butcher, grocer and milkman made house calls daily. What is less well known is that the Famous Five books contain the earliest evidence of global warming. Every summer, the children and pet dog are described as melting in the extreme heat of the Home Counties, requiring sometimes as many as three ice-creams each from the local dairy to cool down.
