Book info

  • Title Five Go Off to Camp
  • Author Enid Blyton
  • Year 1948
  • Genre Childrens

In book seven, the Famous Five investigate spook trains in the dead of night. The trains seem to vanish into thin air, but where do they go? The Five discover an unusual underground tunnel system and a secret train-service. If they follow the tracks, will they solve the mystery?


I think each of these books should be called Famous Five Get Into Trouble again because you go into each book like you would an episode of Casualty, watching all the signs as they point to the gang falling into another adventure. I quite like that this one was very meta about it - they kept chatting on about whether they wanted to have an adventure or not, although ultimately it wasn’t their choice. The only thing I didn’t like about this one was the word spook-train. Don’t know why, it just annoyed me.

Rating: 3 / 5
