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 *
