The ‘Mystery of the Skull’ is one story from the Mystery series of Secret Seven. The Secret Seven Series is written by Enid Blyton & retold with illustrations by Pamela Butchart.
This book has a bit of horror twist to it. When Peter enters his bedroom after a fortnight’s vacation, he is surprised to find an old skull hidden there. He needs to solve the mystery behind it along with his gang, the Secret Seven. Soon this group of little detectives comes up with a plan to solve the mystery. There is a lot of action in this horror mystery.
The best part of the story is when Pam and Barbara dress up as old women and reach the hotel. They act as guests in the hotel to uncover the plot.
I think the book is worth reading. It is unputdownable after you start it. It has a gripping storyline and you won’t get bored at all. It is written in simple words so anyone can easily understand and read it. I give it 5 on 5!
