Five On a Hike Together by Enid Blyton

Dipping into the next three adventures of the Famous Five, and this one saw them go for a long hike… although obviously that turned into not so much walking and more of an adventure. This time they were following a riddle that was inadvertently given to them - something of a treasure hunt - and I liked that aspect of it, unravelling the clues and determined to make it work. It’s so interesting how the characters develop in each book, this time the focus seemed to be on Julian who was very bolshy and almost rude this time out - standing up for their rights and not taking any nonsense from what could be quite scary strangers. Curious what their next adventure might be!
