Summary

Enid Blyton's much-loved classic series, packed full of adventure and mystery.

Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann and Jack escape their tutor for a lovely holiday in Cornwall, right by the sea. They can see the sinister Isle of Gloom from their window, covered in mist and harbouring strange secrets. Are they prepared for the dangerous adventure that awaits them there? 

Perfect for fans of the Famous Five looking for their next adventure.

Jolly romp......

a jolly romp for children to either read or listen to, I enjoyed it far more than 'The sea of adventure'. I enjoy many books written with children in mind and because I like 'The famous five' I gave these books a go,they don't lend themselves to adult readers as well as The Five .
Blyton seems to use very similar characters in both sets of books and in 'The Adventure' books the children seem more sophisticated but for me not as likeable.

Gripping!

My children thoroughly enjoyed the suspense and the happy ending! Such fun listening - like sharing adventure stories with old friends.
