AMAZING!! Get it its great I love it i listen to it in the car!!
Always been my Favourite Five since the 1940's, and only spoilt by repeated mentions of jeans! Like chalk scrapping on a blackboard it is painful every time! Also, pence used! It is so weird as other little used and outdated words used and are perfect. The Five didn't wear jeans! Do wish these delightful readings could stick to the text and replace these odd alterations. Otherwise, simply smashing!
The book is immensely descriptive and beautiful with an unexpected plot twist (which shatters this new found peace). But will they ever escape the sticks three thumbs? Buckle your seat belts book-lovers, the famous five are back🚹🚹🚹🚺🐕 : )!!!!
my 7 year old loved this book first audiobook he has listen too. very well read.
Was painful to listen to. First two Famous Five stories had some old-fashioned aspects re gender etc. but had fun stories and characters to take you along on the adventure, but this one had overt bullying, classism, stereotypes, sexist gender roles.. I finished the book because I'd already bought the next one and was just something easy to listen to going to sleep, but everything, not least the simplistic "taste of their own medicine" morality, is not a positive message for kids or anyone in more ~enlightened times so proceed with caution.
Sorry to be killjoy as I know this was written in the 40s/50s so I wasn't expecting up-to-date representation but just so people know what they're getting into as this one's especially frustrating and I couldn't just go along with the fun romp when so much of it was at the expense of others etc.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I think they would enjoy this book because I enjoyed it.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked it when they went to Kirrin Island because they had not been there since last summer.
What does Jan Francis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
If you have the audio book you can listen to it anywhere. If you read the book in a car it is bumpy and harder to read and you can get sick.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me laugh a lot.
Any additional comments?
I think this is the best audio book I have ever heard.
