Five Go Off On One!

It’s the summer hols at last! Escape the windy rain of February and join the Famous Five for seaside hijinks and simply lashings of ginger beer. When Julian, Dick and Anne join their cousin George for the summer holidays, they are sure that adventure is just around the corner. And they’re right! Something fishy is happening on Kirrin Island. Someone’s signalling from the tower, there are strange crates on the beach, and where oh where is Timmy?

Things are looking grim, but don’t worry –

Aunt Fanny’s packed a picnic.
