Famous Five Colour Short Stories: Happy Christmas, Five! Synopsis

Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series. It is Christmas Eve, and the Famous Five are very excited about their mountain of presents. But when Timmy barks furiously he is sent outside, leaving a thief free to steal all the presents. Can Timmy still manage to save the day? In addition to the Famous Five novels, Enid Blyton wrote a clutch of short stories based on the characters. These were published in magazines and collected in the Famous Five Short Story Collection (Hodder). For the first time, the complete and original text of Happy Christmas, Five! (1956) appears in an individual volume, illustrated with brand new colour art by Jamie Littler.
