Recommends it for: I would say children, but I am a little hesitant
Recommended to David by: Nobody, it was sitting on my bookshelf.

While I am a massive Enid Blyton fan, I am and even bigger lover of the Famous Five, and this book didn't cut it for me. I never felt part of the story line or the characters, and just didn't feel the mystery and intrigue which I always get with the Famous Five .
Don't think it is a bad book, just I was the wrong person turning the pages, and all the jigsaws, audiobooks and books of the Famous Five might be making me a tad biased
