    I read about a dozen of the Famous Five books when I was a kid but I never really looked at the list of titles in the back to appreciate that in fact there were about two dozen of them and I had a random scattering of the titlesThis is book number 2 and I'd not read it before this week when I read it to my daughter Celyn Being only the 2nd volume it's one where some of the basic 'mythology' of the series is establishedUncle uentin's important scientific work is highlighted in this one The book was written during the second world war and although the men who are trying to steal Uncle uentin's SECRET FORMULA aren't identified as German spies that's who they are Similarly when they're hauled off at the end there's no hint that they were probably shot a week laterEnid Blyton wrote a vast number of books 800 and she must have written most of them in the space of a few weeks She also appears to know rather little about history science mechanics etc and it shows but only to adults who find themselves reading the booksSOME SPOILERS hereThe book revolves around the theft of Uncle uentin's papers and unmasking the thief There's really only one possible suspect and it's a bit disappointing that it turns out to be him In the house are Uncle uentin Aunt Fanny the children and the tutor The farmhouse is isolated and snowbound Important pages are stolen from Uncle uentin's book and IMPORTANT TEST TUBES are BROKEN Suspicious falls on naughty George but when her father looks in her eyes as she denies it we are told that he believes her and yet no adult suspects the tutor But hey it was him after all I guess the matter was sealed at the very start when we're directed to the fact he has thin lips like most cruel people not an exact uoteThe other central issue is that of the Secret Way which is a secret tunnel that for no apparent reason joins Kirrin Cottage to Kirrin Farm It seems to be a vast and pointless feat of engineering It doesn't even have smuggling potentialThe secret of the Secret Path which becomes secretly crucial in the secret theft of the secret papers is for some reason written in Latin although the tunnel seems to only be a couple of hundred years old Against reason as in Lara Croft films all the old mechanisms still work and not only unlock secret doors but helpfully move and replace slabs of stone etcThe Secret Way is described as being dug through sandy soil which boggles the mind and the children encounter cave ins along the length of it meaning that their exploration of it is actually mind bendingly fool hardyTimmy is deployed in his usual Swiss Army knife dog mode capable of almost any feat and able to down his enemies without actually ripping large chunks out of themAnyway the baddies are defeated hoorah and the children save the dayI did like the bit where the Christmas tree was decorated with candles that were then lit I suppose if you're going to live like that then digging your way through collapsing sand tunnels is par for the courseNote another series in which Blyton includes a Dick and Fanny did she know?

    I'm not feeling well today so this will be briefThe second Famous Five book picks up one school term after the first one finishes The kids are all excited to see each other again and excited because it's almost Christmas Then George takes a dislike to their new tutor a private tutor during the Christmas holidays? That sucks and things start getting adventurey Adventureish? Adventuresome? Adventurelike? This book does exactly what it says on the tin and the real star is Timothy the dog; he really gets a chance to shine this time Buddy read with Sunshine Seaspray

    The five come together again at the Christmas holidays Julian Dick Anne and George don't call her Georgina and of course Timothy the dog all gather at Kirran Cottage But not everything is going to be fun and games Three of the kids need tutoring to improve their grades so a tutor is hired Even with lessons taking up some of their time each day they still manage to find adventure and a mystery to solve There is a thief sneaking aboutand the 5 need to find the culprit I can see why this series is such a classic I kept reading references to the Famous Five stories in books by British authors so decided it was time for me to read the series I'm glad I did These are children's stories and a bit dated but very enjoyable tales There are 21 books in the series published from 1942 through 1963 Then there are eight short stories added in 1995 Five Go Adventuring Again is the second book in the series I still have a lot of reading to do I think George is my favorite character She hates to be called Georgina and has a bit of a temper She absolutely loves her dog Timothy And woe to the person that dislikes her dog I can see why kids have loved these books for decades I wish I had had such fun adventures in my own childhood Moving on to the next book Five Run Away Together

    This is the second Famous Five novel in the series and of course is packed full of action and excitement George Georgina Anne Dick Julian and the dog Timothy find themselves once again tackling baddies this time over ChristmasAs the schools break up for Christmas George is supposed to spend the holidays with her cousins but when their mother is taken ill with scarlet fever so plans are altered Thus George’s cousins go back with her to her home where they went in the first book It is felt by the parents that apart from Anne the others need a bit tuition and so George’s father uentin employs a tutor But this man Mr Roland doesn’t seem to like the dog and the feeling is mutual With a couple of artists staying at the nearby Kirrin Farm could one of these three be responsible when some of uentin’s research papers go missing?With secret passages loads of action and daring will the children and the dog of course be able to locate the missing papers? Children should love this both boys and girls and I must admit that this could bring back some nostalgia for older readers I may not be young any but I still enjoy reading of the escapades of the Famous Five

    I have read the whole series over and over again I never tire of it This book is the second in the series and the George Anne Julian and Dick along with Timmy the dog return to Kirrin Cottage for the Christmas break Sadly the boys and George have not done too well at school so George's father arranges for a tutor and so Mr Roland arrives George takes an instant dislike to him when he insists on calling George by her rightful name Georgina and announces he hates dogs Despite having to spend their mornings studying the five manage to have a marvellous adventure as they track down a thief and race along secret passagesI love the innocence of these stories and the fact that children don't need TV and computer games to exist The children are aged from 10 to 12 and they act their age They aren't little adults kicking backside as many kids in fiction are portrayed today they are children having a jolly good adventure

    I was informed this weekend that I was shockingly remiss for not having already read Enid Blyton’s ‘Famous Five’ series so I set out at once to remedy this mistake easy enough as I was standing in the middle of New York City’s Books of Wonder whilst being thusly informed Having now read Five Go Adventuring Again I have the strong suspicion that George is the best thing ever as she is a girl with a boy’s name who prefers to be called ‘Master George’ she actually gets away doing poorly at school on the excuse that she hasn’t ever been there before and not only does she solve the mystery of who has been stealing her father’s scientific work but she also solves the ages old secret passage mystery as well – while everyone else including the adults are just kind of standing around being like ‘hmm everything is so confusing probably because we are only eleven’ George doesn’t let only being eleven stop her

    I first read this as a child in 1954 I think it was Like most of my contemporaries I loved The Famous Five series Re reading 60 years on was a piece of pure nostalgia Of course it's a book for children but then I'm a big kid at heart
