Jack Trent: A boy about Philip's age, who has red hair, green eyes and many freckles on his face, the latter of which earning him the nickname "Freckles" from Philip.
I forgot how I used to read quickly to find out what was going to happen next, and this hasn’t changed. There are literally thousands of birds there, and Jack swears he caught sight of a Great Auk, thought to be extinct.He is one of the few black characters to be found in Blyton and comes across as something of a caricature at first, full of superstitious tales of bad "things" wandering about at night. Enid Blyton's beloved works include The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, Malory Towers, The Magic Faraway Tree and the Adventure series. It is in this book that Jack, Philip, Dinah and Lucy-Ann first became friends and find themselves spending the summer at Craggy-Tops, with Philip and Dinah's Aunt Polly and Uncle Jocelyn.
She says she's been without him all through the school term and doesn't want to be without him during the holidays too. In my c50s reprint, the servant is a sullen, slightly mad black man with rolling eyes, and his name is Jo-Jo.
He is quite a tease with his sister Dinah about her squeamishness and often gets into fights with her about it.
