Five Go Off to Camp is a great book but in my imagination I do not like the look of Lewis and Tiger Dan! I have read other Famous Five books and liked this one the best. It was very exciting and very risky but the brave Five never stop their adventure. I did not think there would be any thieves in this adventure but something always pops out in their holidays! Don't stop now Five! You have got plenty more adventures to come! If you're sensitive about cruelty to dogs you may not want to read it.
As formulaic as any other novel for kids or adults - Grisham and LeCarre could both learn a lesson about complete storytelling here, but what the hey, they and others make the big bucks, so what do I know. Enid Blyton was an excellent writer. She engages, delights, scares, and gives us the release of the success of her characters. Read these books as a kid. A treat to relive my childhood in the sixties in England. Also, the series provides a look into the thoughts, beliefs, relationships, and character of the period. Entertaining reading. Kids today, and their parents, may find many levels of discourse here, but mainly they are just fun to read.
It came on time, well-packaged and in very good condition.
Enid Blyton knows how to write a suspenseful book and always in an interesting location like on the Moors. You feel as if you are right there with the children experiencing the adventure. It's a fun book whether you're first reading it as a child or years later as an adult.
It's written back some years, but it doesn't matter. It's still an adventure-although in these days, you couldn't live like that and go off without parental protection.
