Five on a Treasure Island is the favourite childhood book of generations of young readers.

Celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Famous Five with this gorgeous hardback edition, illustrated by Eileen Soper's beautiful original drawings, now coloured for the first time. This stunning hardback edition is the perfect gift for fans of all ages.

Enid Blyton has been at the heart of every childhood for decades - and with this beautiful new edition, she'll stay there for many more. Indulge your own nostalgia or introduce a new reader to the Famous Five. Join the adventure!

One of the world’s best-selling authors, Blyton’s stories and verse are as quintessentially British as cream teas and red phone boxes. With their classic mix of adventure, magic and humour (not to mention legendary picnics) her books have been selling in their millions since they were first published in the 1930’s. Amongst her best-known stories still flying off the shelves at Waterstones are the intrepid Famous Five and Secret Seven as well as the Noddy books and the enchanted land of The Magic Faraway Tree.

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 * *
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 very best for a first read”



Enid’s Famous Five books featuring Julian, Dick, George and Anne and Timmy the dog, were the catalyst which encouraged me to start reading more than 50 years ago. Thank... More
