    Enid Blyton box sets -anyone used www.pickabook.co.uk before please?

    Hey all,

    i used to love Enid Blytons books when i was younger, especially the famous five and thought they will make a great set for christmas for my daughter, does anyone know how many there are in the set?

    also the secret 7?

    and where i might get them? - book people only do singles, amazon only have used, cant seem to get them anywhere? audio sets yet but not the books.

    and has anyone used pickabook.co.uk

    thank you al xx
