The Lovereading4Kids comment
A surprise holiday at Craggy-Tops for Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann, Jack and Kiki the parrot should have been perfect! With the sea breaking below them at the bottom of the cliff, Jack’s delight at being surrounded by so many birds and the chance to go exploring, everyone is expecting great happiness. But a trip to the Isle of Gloom turns out to be full of danger. Should Joe’s warnings about the dangerous island have been heeded? And will they return safely? Cressida Cowell’s foreword to this edition - which comes complete with the original illustrations – reflects her own childhood excitement at the stories and the way they influenced her Hiccup the Viking titles.
One of a range of Macmillan Classics, beautifully produced hardback editions of some of the best-loved stories from the past. Each has a introduction by another author who, in their turn, have been influenced by the great writers of these books.
Island of Adventure by Enid Blyton
For Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann, Jack and Kiki the parrot, the summer holidays in Cornwall are everything they'd hoped for. Until they begin to realise that something very sinister is taking place on the mysterious Isle of Gloom - where a dangerous adventure awaits them in the abandoned copper mines and secret tunnels beneath the sea.
A beautiful hardback edition of The Island of Adventure, the first book in Enid Blyton's classic Adventure series, first published by Macmillan in 1944. Gloriously illustrated with the original line drawings by Stuart Tresilian, a ribbon marker and with a foreword by Cressida Cowell, this is a truly special gift to treasure.
