Meet Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timothy. Together they are THE FAMOUS FIVE - Enid Blyton's most popular adventure series. All 21 titles also available as audiobooks!

'There was something else out on the sea by the rocks - something dark that seemed to lurch out of the waves . . . What could it be?'

Julian, Dick and Anne are spending the holidays with their tomboy cousin George and her dog, Timothy. One day, George takes them to explore nearby Kirrin Island, with its rocky little coast and old ruined castle on the top.

Over on the island, they make a thrilling discovery, which leads them deep into the dungeons of Kirrin Castle on a dangerous adventure. Who - and what - will they find there?

Fantastic new cover art by Laura Ellen Anderson will draw young readers into this accessible timeless classic.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
