Summary

Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series.

In book 11, the Famous Five are on an adventurous holiday in horse-drawn caravans. They discover a ruined castle that looks deserted. But is that a face at the window? Or is it a trick of the light?

Just who is hiding in the castle?

Famous Five Unabridged at last!

Would you consider the audio edition of Famous Five: 11 to be better than the print version?

Yes. Jan Francis is Such a brilliant narrator and brings the book to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Famous Five: 11?

I loved all the usual famous five events. The mysterious face at the window was particularly Blytonesque!

Which character – as performed by Jan Francis – was your favourite?

Jan Francis did a great job on all of the characters but I particularly liked her "Uncle Quentin"!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Trip down memory lane. The complete unabridged story as intended, without cuts and rewriting. Jan Francis did an excellent job. I shall be downloading ALL of the series as a treat. With lashings of ginger beer! Goodbye everyone, see you next time!

Please don't alter original text!

Sadly "pence" used, and wear jeans instead of shorts, and it really jars. Rest of text as was and of the period, so it really doesn't make sense to alter anything. Such a shame.
