famous five_2

Hey guys!! Thank you so much for all the love that you showed for my last post which was on Famous Five : Five on a hike together. So here I am, with another book review about the Famous Five series by Enid Blyton. So the story goes like this:

SYNOPSIS( My Version)

The Famous Five : Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog are enjoying themselves at home when suddenly an unexpected visit by Mrs. Layman , an old lady who is a friend of the kids mother , turns the story upside down. Mrs. Layman wants the Five to come over and stay with her grandson Wilfrid , all alone in their tumble-down cottage! When the five finally agree to stay with Wilfrid, they realise that he is not a very friendly boy and is not ready to mingle with them at all! As they start to settle in with Wilfrid at their cottage, they get to know that there is a ‘Whispering Island’ near to the cottage. When the Five are shipwrecked at the island without Wilfrid, with just a limited amount of utilities, they discover something magnificent !! There is a hidden royal treasure in the island , complete with real gold statues and idols worth a fortune! As they start a mission to uncover the goods before the smugglers who are also on the island can, and hand it over to the police, things start getting nastier….


The book was another one of Enid Blyton’s masterpieces . The story is very addictive and captivating, as well as packed with thrill mystery and adventure. The twists and turns of the story seem thoroughly realistic. It makes you feel as if you are one of the Famous Five! I highly recommend this book to readers who are either Enid Blyton fans , or love to read mystery and adventure novels. A great read!
