The Famous Five - three siblings, their cousin and her dog - are probably among the most famous of Enid Blyton's literary creations, coming in just behind Noddy and the Magic Faraway Tree. They are certainly the best-known of her juvenile detectives series (would kids these days even know who the Secret Seven and the Five Find-Outers are?) and the adventures of Julian, Dick, George, Anne and Timmy the dog have never been out of print since their first publication in 1942.
