Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series.

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?

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 -- Alexander McCall Smith * 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 -- Dan Smith * 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 *
"The book is amazing and I can't wait to read the next one." 10/10 William King * Parent Talk *
Her captivating stories enticed generations of youngsters to enjoy reading and books. * Sally Jenkins wordpress *
Sure to be enjoyed by young readers discovering Blyton for the first time, as well as existing fans. * booktrust *
They don't look a day over 12, yet The Famous Five are 70 this year - and their adventures are devoured every bit as enthusiastically by today's children. * Sunday Express *
These ever-popular children's classics are still read and loved by today's would-be adventurers. * Springboard Stories Issue 2 *
