Product description

The books that all the other adventure writers try to copy! The timeless classic stories of five young sleuths who fall into adventure time and time again!

One summer, Julian, Dick and Anne are sent away to Cornwall to stay with their aunt and uncle. There, they meet their cousin George – a fiery tomboy who refuses to be separated from her dog, Timmy. That’s how the Famous Five are born: Julian, Dick, George, Anne and Timothy the dog! As the kids explore the coves and cliffs of Kirrin Island together, they run into a row of spooky mysteries. Soon they are on the trail of shipwrecks and buried treasure, smugglers, thieves and ruthless kidnappers…

These fantastic 70th anniversary editions feature specially commissioned new covers from favourite illustrators including Quentin Blake, Oliver Jeffers and Chris Riddell.

    I read all of the famous five books from the library when I was about 7 or 8 when I was addicted to Enid blyton! The books are very adventurous and exciting full of fun and entertainment for children of all ages! Every book is different exciting. It whisks you away to another world of adventure, which is an experience and a half!

    The books are about a group of children; Julian, Dick, George, Anne and Timmy the dog who go to explore Kirrin Island as a holiday on their own. As the holiday goes on the adventure goes on, they discover mysterys, meet new people, good and bad, and come across shipwrecks, buried treasure, smugglers, thieves and cruel kidnappers…... Xx

    All five of these books are exciting, mysterious and you just can’t put the book down till you’ve read it. I would recommend this kind of book for 7-11 year olds

    I thought it was exciting but i think maybe George could of stayed mean for a bit longer. I like Dick and Timmy best of all because Dick was sencible but funny at the same time.Timmy because he can undersatned George and all the others.
