I love those Enid Blyton books. On this side of the pond we had the "Secret Seven" books and I read every one I could get my hands on.
Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. In addition to providing gift ideas you gave me some good reading prospects for my own enjoyment.

Hey Alex, mentioning Enid Blyton brought back something I don't think I had thought about since primary school. When I was in what would have been my third year of school, about age 8 - 9, a trainee teacher came into class for a number of weeks. Since I think our teacher wouldn't have trusted this guy to do anything "serious", he read to us for half an hour a day. What he read was "The Magic Faraway Tree". Somehow, because he was reading it to us, I had the freedom to imaginise what was going on. And although I had been reading by myself perfectly happily since age 4, while I might well have objected to being read to, I didn't. In fact, I still quite often enjoy listening to book readings on the radio.

We could definitely have a worthwhile thread about books on tape. I like them in the car on long road trips, but some are just awful.
