Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series - a landmark of children's fiction, loved around the world for several generations.

In their first adventure, the Famous Five find a shipwreck off Kirrin Island. But where is the treasure? The Famous Five are on the trail, looking for clues, but they're not alone. Someone else has got the same idea! Time is running out for the Famous Five - who will follow the clues and get to the treasure first?

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) *
