They had all enjoyed their breakfast of black tea and porridge (made with gluten-free oats and nut milk) sprinkled with aÒ«ai berries and bee pollen.

George, Dick, Anne, Julian and Timmy confront a new challenge: is it possible to get a good gluten-free cream tea?

Julian, Anne, Dick, George and Timmy are all feeling really rather rum, and it's been going on for days. Nothing seems to work, and with their doctors mystified, they're driven to trying out various expedients to cure themselves.

Julian goes online to self-diagnose that he's got pancreatic cancer, bird flu and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. Anne decides that the old methods are the best and decides to have herself exorcised - which proves to be an awful lot of bother for everyone, and such a mess. Dick goes to a witch-doctor who calls himself a 'homeopath' ('sounds only one short of sociopath, Dick!') but it's George who discovers they need to go on an exclusion diet, so they enter a world of hard-to-find, maddeningly expensive specialist foods ...

Just perfect for anyone who likes Deliciously Ella, Amelia Freer and the Naturalista - as well as any reluctant partners who are begrudgingly spiralising courgettes for dinner.

Enid Blyton's books are beloved the world over and The Famous Five have been the perennial favourites of her fans. Now, in this new series of Enid Blyton for Grown-Ups they’re about to discover that the trials of being an adult are even trickier to handle than a gang of smugglers.

I think it’s time for another ginger beer…

“The best of the fun books aimed at adults based on children's novels”

As one might expect, this short novel is an amusing take of the Famous Five in a modern context. It deals with the Five facing the problems of deciding to have a healthy diet and the consequences of this new... More
