Five Go Off in A Carvan by Enid Blyton

Five Go Off in a Caravan by Enid Blyton

Amazon Product Description:
A caravan holiday for the Famous Five is bound to be an adventure! And when they stumble across a circus troupe, the gang are thrilled. But some of the circus people have more sinister plans than just clowning around....

First published in 1946, I read these Famous Five books when I was in primary school in the 60's early 70's. They were wonderful - full of adventures and good clean fun.

Now they do seem a little dated with their clean living, ginger bear and jam sandwiches, and class distinctions.

However, the stories are still endearing and if not as popular now, this book brought back lots of happy memories.

  1. This sounds like fun. I gather it is a series of books? And, from your Amazon description, I'm assuming I can still purchase them. Might be good for getting a feeling of the times back then. Thanks for the review.
