The Famous Five: Five on a Treasure Island

The book that all the other adventure writers try to copy! The timeless classic story of five young sleuths who fall into adventure time and time again! The Famous Five are Julian, Dick, George, Anne and Timothy the dog. They have a gift for finding mystery everywhere they go. So when they spend their first holiday together on Kirrin Island in Cornwall, it’s not long before excitement is afoot. What does the sunken shipwreck on the coast hide? Are the rumours of hidden treasure true? And who else is on the Five’s tail as they search for clues? A desperate treasure hunt is about to begin…

  • George is my fave. I believe I am a bit like her (even though I have hair that got down my waist and I certainly don’t own an island, a wreck and a lovely dog!)
