Book info

In book four, the Famous Five stay at the large old house at Smuggler's Top. They discover secret hiding places, underground tunnels, and one night they catch people signalling out to sea! Are there still smugglers at Smuggler's Top?


I tell you what, the stakes felt a lot higher in this adventure, it wasn’t just about the kids uncovering some kind of plot, but they actually had to save their own Uncle Julian from being kidnapped! Crikey! It gets off to a mysterious start, that imposing building on the top of the hills with scary marshes all around, and the mysteries just continue to deepend.

I did feel a bit annoyed about how much effort it took to hide Timothy the dog, but hey, he’s one of the five, so you’ve got to love him!

Rating: 3 / 5
