    Author Information
    Enid Blyton died in 1968 but remains one of the best-known and best-loved writers of children's stories. She is consistently voted a children's favourite in author polls. She has over 600 children's books to her credit, including the Famous Five series, the Secret Seven series, the Naughtiest Girl series - all Hodder - and the Malory Towers and St Clare's series, both available from Hodder on audio.
    Review text
    Another high-spirited mystery-adventure by a popular English author. Her erodible children in incredible adventure provide sure pull with her readers. Here three visiting cousins, with their defiant cousin George (who wont be called Georgiana) find treasure on a rocky island in the ruins and underground passages of an ancient castle. There are plenty of thrills, - an old ship cast up from the sea, a treasure map, a breath-taking chase - set in the sunbright freshness of the sea air. Interwoven with the lively adventure there's an unobtrusive subplot as a lonely child, headed for a sullen, negative maturity, fearful of her strangely moody father, gradually learns that sharing experiences is more fun than defiant solitude. And that her father's irritability is rooted in worry over financial insecurity for his loved ones. The children are generous, likable - and have plenty of initiative and daring, even when dealing with hardened criminals. Some phases of the story are wholly English; the style is awkward, uncertain. But the pace of story carries one right along to an exciting climax and a satisfying ending. (Kirkus Reviews)
