Summary

Enid Blyton's books are beloved the world over and The Famous Five have been the perennial favourite of her fans.

Now, in this new series of Enid Blyton for Grown-Ups, George, Dick, Anne, Julian and Timmy confront a new challenge: what exactly is this puzzling scrape referred to as a 'strategy away day'?

The Five have gone on their greatest adventure yet - to become an even better team! They are booked into an exciting hotel right next to the jolly motorway services, where the nice (if somewhat nervous and sweating and depressed) man teaches them a number of exercises that will make them work better.

But wait! Who's been sneaking messages through the hotel dumb waiter about secret assignations? Is there a smuggler's plot afoot? Or is Shelly from Production shagging Postroom Luke? All will be revealed...Ideal for those who are allergic to corporate jargon and will throw a sickie before having to play a trust game with colleagues.

Wonderful, you really think it’s them. Woof!

All these books take me back to being a young boy who wanted to get out there and follow in the adventures of the Famous Five. Bit suspicious about the age of Timmy. The stories are great and the characters really well painted. The miles flew by in the car...🙃🙂🍷

Annoying and waste of listening time

A really annoying story about how the Famous Five have turned into corporate mainstream employees and win the day by over hearing a piece of information that they are able to act upon. Not worth your time listening.
