Famous five run away together

I loved this book and enjoyed it so much! It includes the most amazing adventure! I would recommend it to people 8+ as they would enjoy it most! I especially loved the capture the sticks and hope other people will like it as much as I have! I really felt the same as the five when they saw the sticks with their stuff. the reading was perfect!

Slow start but gripped the kids at the end

Slow start but has some exciting adventures in the second half that gripped our kids (girls 6 and 8). Some simplistic notions of how to treat children of criminals. Would recommend the preceding adventures first.

Almost a score of five.....

Always been my Favourite Five since the 1940's, and only spoilt by repeated mentions of jeans! Like chalk scrapping on a blackboard it is painful every time! Also, pence used! It is so weird as other little used and outdated words used and are perfect. The Five didn't wear jeans! Do wish these delightful readings could stick to the text and replace these odd alterations. Otherwise, simply smashing!

I N C R E A D I B L E

The book is immensely descriptive and beautiful with an unexpected plot twist (which shatters this new found peace). But will they ever escape the sticks three thumbs? Buckle your seat belts book-lovers, the famous five are back🚹🚹🚹🚺🐕 : )!!!!
