Five Go Adventuring Again by Enid Blyton

The gang return for a second adventure, but this time the mystery comes right to their door. With everyone staying at George’s house, and a tutor coming in to give them additional lessons, there’s a plot afoot. I didn’t think this one was quite as good as the first, but mostly because I loved the island in the first one. This time, it’s about secret passageways and scientific espionage!

Five on a Treasure Island by Enid Blyton

I mean, if you’re going to go Enid Blyton, you’ve got to go all the way back to the start of the five, right? Four kids and a dog go gallivanting around, causing and finding mischief. Some of it is unbelievable in this day and age, I mean for a start that kids would want to spend so much time outdoors but then also that parents/guardians would be happy about their charges heading off to a notoriously rocky island when there’s a storm brewing.
