Review quote

Always popular, always a favourite. And ALWAYS full of adventure -- Dan Smith * The Big Issue * Dangerous criminals are no match for children and a dog. Adults are useless * Country Life * I thought this series was wonderful. It struck me as a great injustice that they were having adventures and I wasn't -- Alexander McCall Smith * The Sunday Telegraph * Famous Five books are essential for all children's bookshelves * MADEFORMUMS.COM * One of the 50 books every child should read by Age 16 * essexbaby.co.uk * The prize must go to the adventures of George and co. Listed as one of the 100 Best Children's Books Ever (Novels) * The Daily Telegraph * Pacey and passionate, this truly exceptional book tells a tale that truly needs to be heard * Lovereading4kids * 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 * 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) * This book is so exciting you'll want to play detective yourself * The Week Junior * Always popular, always a favourite.
