Product description

Review

The prize must go to the adventures of George and co. Listed as one of the 100 Best Children's Books Ever (Novels) (The Daily Telegraph)

One of the 50 books every child should read by Age 16 (essexbaby.co.uk)

Famous Five books are essential for all children's bookshelves (MADEFORMUMS.COM)

I thought this series was wonderful. It struck me as a great injustice that they were having adventures and I wasn't (The Sunday Telegraph)

Dangerous criminals are no match for children and a dog. Adults are useless (Country Life)

Always popular, always a favourite. And ALWAYS full of adventure (The Big Issue)

This book is so exciting you'll want to play detective yourself (The Week Junior)

As the first set of 'grown-up' books I ever discovered I could read on my own, the Famous Five have a very special place in my heart. I still remember running through to my parents' room to tell them I could read well enough to go adventuring with the Five without their help. And with 21 books in the series, I had plenty of escapades to look forward to! (The List (Glasgow & Edinburgh))

I loved so much of Enid Blyton ... the Famous Five were my favourites of all, so much so that I demanded to be called George for most of my early childhood (East Anglian Daily Times)

Pacey and passionate, this truly exceptional book tells a tale that truly needs to be heard (Lovereading4kids)

About the Author

Enid Blyton's books have sold over 500 million copies and have been translated into other languages more often than any other children's author.

She wrote over 700 books and about 2,000 short stories, including favourites such as The Famous Five,The Secret Seven, The Magic Faraway Tree, Malory Towers and Noddy.

Born in London in 1897, Enid lived much of her life in Buckinghamshire and adored dogs, gardening and the countryside. She died in 1968 but remains one of the world's best-loved storytellers.
