Wonderful Story Beautifully Told!

If you could sum up Five Go Adventuring Again in three words, what would they be?

Charming adventure story for kids! A real treasure of a story that rightfully belongs in the repertoire of every child's youth.

Who was your favorite character and why?

George, a lovely young girl who is not afraid to be herself and Timmy her dog whose fidelity and charm are timeless.

What about Jan Francis’s performance did you like?

The performance was excellent. Classy, crisp and yet filled with heartfelt emotion.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Get ready for the adventure of your life!

Any additional comments?

PLEASE record all of the books in this series. It is heartbreaking that there are only two audiobooks available of the 21 Famous Five books written by Enid Blyton.

You are left feeling a joy in the simple pleasures of your own life as you see them through the eyes of a man who very nearly lost his.
