A 3 in 1 volume was just completed, and I've been fully transported back to gud ol days!
Every chapter ends with a loud noise, someone vanishing, something appearing etc etc, and you can polish one whole story off in 2-3 hours at max.
Neatly dropped clues, constant good-clean-wholesome action ( no murders etc!) What fun.
I think I need to read a few Enid Blytons now, and then perhaps the Noddy books. Second childhood here I come!
