Enid Blyton cleverly made these simple meals sound so deliciously exciting!

My daughter and I have been working our way through all the Enid Blyton books. She loves them, but the actual text itself is fairly poor quality. It was obviously scanned in from the paper books, and no-one has bothered to go through and correct all the typos introduced in the process. So, for example, the dog Timmy ends up as "Jimmy" for pages at a time.

Almost not a single sentence without one or more typos.
Very disappointing. Bought it for my son who stopped reading it.

"Sooty" frequently rendered as "Booty", punctuation seriously distorted, misspelled words on every page---Amazon has a nerve selling this cruddy transcription as a Kindle edition!

Format: Paperback
Many readers consider "Smuggler's Top" the best in the Famous Five series of books, but you should read them in chronological to enhance the pleasure.

"Five on a Treasure Island" is vol. 1, "Five go adventuring again" vol. 2 (one of the few FF books that take place in the winter time), "Five run away together" (equally exciting as vol. 1 and 2) is vol. 3 and vol. 4 is "Five go to Smuggler's Top".

It takes place in a very old British town surrounded by dangerous moors and with an old town wall. There are secret passages and this book gets even more thrilling than some of the other Famous Five books.

Other very good sequels are "Five on Kirrin Island again", "Five fall into Adventure", "Five on a Hike together" and "Five on a Secret Trail" (one of my favorites).

Make sure to order an edition that contains the great illustrations by Eileen Soper (too bad that amazon does not give this information).

I read these books when I was 8-10 yrs with my best friend. I absolutely LOVED these books! Enid Blyton is a great kids' author and the Famous Five was very engaging! I'd recommend these for kids between ages 8-12.

As a child I remember reading and re-reading certain passages of this book, which have stuck in my memory through to adulthood. I am so excited to have found the proper title(s) of the "Famous Five" series that I plan on purchasing and rediscovering as many as I can.

Great book for kids. Kid-friendly, fun and easy to read. There were some issues with the electronic copy but otherwise I was very happy with this purchase.

An early entry to the Famous Five series it was my favorite entry to my favorite childhood series. Set in the Britain of the 1930's when children wear ties and go to boarding school it might be a little hard for some children to relate to but it is well worth the reward to those who can open it up.

In a series full of burried treasures and secret passages this entry stands out- After a storm damages their home too much to stay in during repairs the children are sent to stay with a friend from school who lives in the mysterious town of Smugglers Top, a near island surrounded by a foggy marsh, with smugglers and hidden passages lining not just the houses but also the hills themselves. At first it seems like just a fun place but soon, as the children realize strange things are still going on, they find themselves caught up in dnager and adventures as lights are seen signaling from houses in the town and certain peope seem to be in two places at once.

As a child these were places I would have loved to have gone to, adventures I would have loved to have been a part of, and decades later, I'm wise enough to know I'd still love to go there. Luckily they are as close as my bookcase, as a near as a page.
