Author(s): Enid Blyton
Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series. In book eight, the Famous Five need to find their friend Dick who, mistaken for somebody else, has been kidnapped. But when the gang finally track him down to a lonely, abandoned house, they too are seized and held captive. Miles from home and help, how will the intrepid Five get themselves out of this mess? This 70th anniversary edition features the text from the Classic edition. Its cover has been illustrated by Polly Dunbar, but there are no inside illustrations. All anniversary editions, each illustrated by a different artist, benefit the House of Illustration, the world's first dedicated home for the art of illustration (houseofillustration.org.uk).
A fresh new look for classic editions of the bestselling series.
