Top 5 Famous Fives

List by Karalisa

"I say – this has boiled up into quite an adventure, hasn’t it?"
- Julian from 'Five on a hike together' by Enid Blyton

Enid Blyton captivated my childhood with her Famous Five series. These books are almost a must - and a great starting point - for any child interested in adventure/detective stories. These are just five of the titles that I read and re-read. You too will be left wanting to own your very own island!

Five on Kirrin Island again - book 6 / Enid Blyton
What is Uncle Quentin up to on Kirrin Island? He won't let anyone visit - not even the Famous Five! But he's not alone on George's island - somebody is watching his every move. Can Julian, Anne, Dick, George and Timmy the dog find out who and warn Uncle Quentin?

Five go down to the sea - book 12 / Enid Blyton
Who would deliberately lure somebody on to treacherous rocks on the Cornish coast? Somebody is flashing lights from the old tower on stormy nights - and the Famous Five sense danger. But can they solve this mystery safely?

Five have a wonderful time - book 11 / Enid Blyton
The Famous Five are on holiday in horse-drawn caravans - and they have discovered a ruined castle nearby. However, the castle isn't empty - the Famous Five has seen a desperate face at the tower window. Who is hiding in the castle?

Five go off to camp - book 7 / Enid Blyton
Spook-trains in the dead of the night! They seem to vanish into thin air- where do they go? The famous five follow the tracks and discover a very unusual underground destination!

Five on a treasure island - book 1 / Enid Blyton
Julian, Dick, George Anne and Timmy the dog are in their first adventure on Kirrin Island, involving a ruined castle, a submerged wreck and a desperate treasure hunt.
