* DuringTheWar: Due to the period in which she was writing, this crops up quite a lot. Rationing due to WorldWarTwo leading to national hunger - well, not exactly hunger, but definitely a longing to be able to just pig out sometimes - also goes a long way towards explaining the FoodPorn in her books.

* ThoseWackyNazis: Are implied to be the hostile foreign power in ''The Adventurous Four'', although they are only ever referred to on page as "the enemy". At [[WorldWarII the time it was published]], it would have been obvious to the readers who they were. The audiobook edition released in the 1990s made it clear that the story was set during WorldWarII and "the enemy" were Nazis, including giving them German accents.

* AdultsAreUseless - partly justified since the adults tend, for the most part, to react the way regular adults would. Often it's not so much a case of 'AdultsAreUseless' as 'Adults aren't as suspicious as they should be and don't trust their children'. Uncle Quentin is a particularly good example in that his major failing is that ''he is just like George'' - as hot headed as a blowtorch!
