'The very first Famous Five adventure, featuring Julian, Dick, Anne, not forgetting tomboy George and her beloved dog, Timmy!

There's a shipwreck off Kirrin Island! But where is the treasure? The Famous Five are on the trail - looking for clues - but they're not alone! Someone else has got the same idea. Time is running out for the Famous Five, who will follow the clues and get to the treasure first?'

I loved this book.

'The Famous Five' is Enid Blyton's most popular series based on the characters Julian, Dick and Anne, George and Timmy the dog. They are fun and exciting, with great story lines and great characters.

Enid Blyton created truly relatable characters complete with faults. Young readers can easily identify with these characters and really connect with them and there friendships.

The Famous Five is filled with exciting adventures involving lost treasures, secret maps, and a deserted island with castle ruins. The story takes place in a quaint seaside village where the children spend there days exploring and adventuring.

I first read Five on a Treasure Island as a child and I loved this story and all the other Famous Five adventures. I always wished I could be one of the Famous Five.
As an adult, I was just as excited about this story. It was like taking a trip down memory lane. Enid Blyton just seemed to understand how children think and her stories, even though they were written decades ago, are still relevent today. This book and other Enid Blyton classics should be a staple for all young readers.
 
The Famous Five series were my favourite Enid Blyton books as a child and I am so glad I am getting the chance to relive these simpler times through these amazing books.
 

The Famous Five by Enid Blyton is the perfect book for young reader or for readers who are young at heart.
