The Lovereading4Kids comment
August 2013 Guest Editor, Lauren St John "I think I read my first Famous Five novel when I was six and I was hooked from that moment on. Recently I was unpacking some boxes and I came across a small pile of my favourite books from childhood. I re-read this particular one for nostalgia’s sake. Sure there are bits of that have dated and Enid Blyton is not the world’s greatest prose stylist. But decades on, the appeal of the Famous Five is as strong as ever. You’re instantly drawn in. You instantly want to be sleeping on beds of heather on the moors or escaping to your own private island. Five Run Away Together has all the best ingredients of the series. A horrid family who are supposed to be taking care of George, Anne, Julian, Dick and Timmy the dog but are clearly up to no good. A trip to Kirrin island. Smugglers. Gold ingots. Impossible to resist."
