Book info

  • Title Five Have a Mystery to Solve
  • Author Enid Blyton
  • Year 1962
  • Genre Childrens

In book twenty, the Famous Five visit Whispering Island, another mysterious place with a million stories surrounding it. Is it really haunted? It's all fun and games until the Five get stranded there and realise they're not the only ones on the island.


Penultimate book, and this time the Five are dispatched to a holiday cottage to stay with a young boy. There’s another mysterious island with secret treasures to be found and that’s the main plot of the book, but I liked the asides - George having to deal with someone else getting on with Timmy, and the gang clearing up a golf course and ingratiating themselves with the neighbours. Fun times, one more book to go!

Rating: 3 / 5
