George's Plan Agreed By All

The third episode in the Five saga finds all five together at Kirrin Cottage but with their cook Joanna gone away to care for her mother for a short while, George's mother in hospital and her father with her as she recovers for an operation the five are living under the eye of a temporary cook who, along with her teenage son, seems to be doing her best to make their life a misery. But George plans to run away to stay on Kirrin Island, taking enough provisions to last her and the four others till her parents return and thus begins another adventure. You just cannot help but like these four children and George's faithful dog Timmy for there's one thing for certain, if George tells him to stand guard over a prisoner there will be no need for locks and bolts and in the end, they will always be the heros and heroins.

I just can't wait for the next episode and after finishing this series I'm considering trying the Adventure series and also the Malory Towers series.

Five Run Away Together

I think this story and all the others are very good.
It is just so creative and a bit of like a roller coaster so it goes up and down all the time

Best Famous five ever!!!!!!!

This, I think is the best famous five I have ever listened to!
When they think there are smugglers it is exiting but when they find it is actually kidnappers it gets even better
