The Famous Five are a group of children who have the sort of adventures most kids dream about,

in a world where ginger beer flows and ham rolls are a staple diet. Julian, Dick and Anne get together with their cousin George in the first adventure, Five On A Treasure Island.

George is actually a girl who wants so desperately to be a boy she crops her hair and struts about doing boy things.

She hates it when people call her by her correct name, Georgina.

She has a dog called Timmy—oh yes, and an island.

Most kids just have a dog, but George’s parents own Kirrin Island and let her run around on it as if it were her play-thing.

Her parents are known to Julian, Dick and Anne as Uncle Quentin and Aunt Fanny.

    The famous five, where do I start? This book is packed, absoulutely PACKED with fun, adventure, and mystery. In all twenty one of these stories the cousins always find an adventure, mystery, or escapade to fix, explore or solve. My favourite character would definetly be George, because she is really cool, and she’s really fierce and she stands up for herself, and people like that are good people to be around. I remember reading this series in year three, and not being able to put it down! If you love action packed books that have a lot of adventure, and mischeif then definetly add this to your bookshelf because you will enjoy it, I loved this series and would give it a 10 out of 10.


  2. I love The Famous Five! They are short books but there is a supply of them so the fun never runs out! These books are about Julian, Dick , Anne, their cousin George and her dog Timmy. The Famous Five is just a series that has adventure and fun written all over it.
    I always dreamed of joining them on one of their awesome journeys especially if it was at Kirrin Island. These children always found trouble but somehow manage to get out of it. I would recommend this to kids as it’s a great series by Enid Blyton and I would rate it 9/10.

  5. famous five books I find are really good and really loved to read them. I liked how the story was and how it was lade out. I liked how I never felt board in them. They are old books but old books can still be good books. They are for the younger age but then any one can read them. I wish some thing liked that happened to me once to have a good story to tell and not the same one every time like nan. I will give it an 9/10 and the people who will like this book will probably be people who like a bit of adventure.


  6. I love all the adventures they go on its so exciting and you just can’t put it down I love when they go to the island and explore every thing and find new passage ways. Timmy the dog is my favourite he’s so loyal and funny. If you like adventures and excitement then i suggest reading all of the books, theirs so many so you’ll be reading for a while.


  7. I really enjoy reading the Famous Five series because it’s about two boys, two girls and a dog who go on many interesting adventures together! It’s great because you never know what is going to happen and the author chooses some great adventures. I haven’t completed the series yet but I think its amazing so far and I can’t wait to read the rest! The two boys in the book are called Julian and Dick and the two girls are called Anne and George and of course they have their gorgeous dog timmy who belongs to George (Her name is actually Georgina but she prefers George). George is the other three’s cousin and they catch up on as many holidays as they can and every time they do it is an adventure! I rate the series a 9/10 because of how interesting it is an I couldn’t put it down because it was so interesting. I recommend it for all age groups!!


  8. oh my gosh. these are the best books ever written. i love enid blyton she’s a great author and her storys are magic. if you ever want to read a magic , mystery and a funny book this is the one for you.


  9. Best book in the ‘Famous Five’ series!
    I haven’t read it in a long time but I do own it and I do love it.
    It’s so simple and easy to read. Three loving siblings- Julian, Dick and Anne meet there cousin George (or Georgina). She doesn’t think they are good enough for her, in particular Anne as she’s such a girl.
    But slowly they all begin to get to know each other and, plus George’s dig Timmy, solve mysteries! Wooooooooooo!!!! Basically, this book is where ’saved the day’ comes through.
    When you read it try and figure out what’s going on before you get to the end. It seems pretty hard but when you read to the end and you haven’t guessed it, it seems easy!
    You’ll like it. I did.


  10. Hey, another great series to get into is the “Famous Five” series! It’s about 3siblings, Julian,Dick and Anne and their cousin George and her dog. They are know as the famous five because they solve mysteries! In this series they discover treasure, gold, antiques and so much more exciting stuff! They are always running into trouble and somehow get themselves out of it! Its a great read and would suit anyone who loves to try and figure out the mystery themselves, before the last page!
