"Five Get Into Trouble"
The Five decide to spend their Easter Holidays camping in the countryside with the usual 'lashings of ginger beer' in plain sight. As is there habit, they meet another boy, Richard, who's the son of a local landowner. When Dick is taken in a case of mistaken identity, it's up to The Five to travel to the mysterious 'Owl's Dene' to find out what's going on.
I really enjoyed listening to this unabridged book. Jan Francis' RP accent was a perfect fit for this particular genre.
"To be fair, I'm not the market for this."
I loved Enid Blyton as a child. As an adult, not so much! But Jan Francis made it bearable.
My children love the Famous Five. It would be a source of amazement to me if I didn't remember how much I loved the books myself. They don't date well, and yet they are still popular. Go figure.
