Publisher's Summary

Meet Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timothy. Together they are The Famous Five.

'There was something else out on the sea by the rocks - something dark that seemed to lurch out of the waves...What could it be?'

Julian, Dick and Anne are spending the holidays with their tomboy cousin George and her dog, Timothy. One day, George takes them to explore nearby Kirrin Island, with its rocky little coast and old ruined castle on the top.

Over on the island, they make a thrilling discovery, which leads them deep into the dungeons of Kirrin Castle on a dangerous adventure. Who - and what - will they find there?

Great adventure and splendid performance!

Thumbs up to a great adventure. The children are lovely and the story has a great twist. Could do without some of the boy vs girl issues but overall great.

Not Just for Kids

This is a great story to get acquainted with the Famous Five series.
Insightful characterisations, believable storyline, skilfully performed by Jan Francis.
Don't be put off by the one voice doing all of the characters. More professional
and enjoyable to listen to than the use of various child voices used in the dramatisations.
May take a few minutes to get used to the voices, but once you do, you're on your way.

Gorgeous stories

I have always loved the Famous Five series. Safe, fun, action (and food) filled adventures for kids! Jan Francis is an excellent narrator, not only giving each character a distinct voice, but acting and performing throughout. Highly recommended.
