Five Get Into Trouble
I quite enjoyed Five Get Into Trouble, because the beginning is (unlike some other books) quite interesting in that the Five are planning a biking/camping trip during their school holidays.
Quite often you might be put off a book just because it has a boring beginning, regardless of the quality of the rest of the story.
Not so with this book!
The Five, after much deliberation, get their Aunt and Uncle to agree to the plan and they get right down to work packing and sorting, and unpacking and re-sorting!
They meet quite a few people in this book, more than usual, which just serves to make the book more interesting, adding a touch of color as it were.
The people they meet, though I won’t name them, also play a larger part of the story than usual, staying with the Five right until the end.
I have enjoyed this book immensely and would highly recommend it!
Five Go Off to Camp
Five Go Off to Camp is an interesting adventure about a camping trip that the Famous Five take in the school holidays.
Camping preparations are horrendous as they always are, but the Five are finally finished and ready to go!
One of the teachers from the boy’s boarding school has offered to drive them to the moors in his car, because he was already going there to camp.
The camping spot is situated near a farm where the Five are able to get food for the camping trip.
The farm is a lovely place with all sorts of things to see and do, and the Five take a liking to it at once!
Mrs. Andrews and her son Jock live in this remote place with Jock’s stepfather, Mr. Andrews.
The teacher who brought them to the moors in his car is named Mr. Luffy and, though he is quite a charming character he unfortunately wouldn’t see an adventure if it was right under his nose!
The Five have a absolutely amazing adventure that will keep you guessing right until the end.
