One of the few Famous Fives where the wondrous meals took a back-seat! Smuggler’s Top however, atop the mist-shrouded Castaway Hill more than made up for the absence of 'lashings' of delicious food.

The adventure starts off with the Five heading off to Kirrin for another glorious vacation. But a terrible gale puts a damper in plans. It uproots a massive ash tree that crashes on to Kirrin Cottage. Four active kids, an excitable dog, a house badly in need of repairs and an irritable Uncle Quentin.

I loved the "Famous Five" books when I was a child. Now I have a very different view.

First of all let me say they are great as adventure stories. They describe kids having an active outdoor life - and generally getting mixed up in something exciting. This sounds just like the sort of books we should be encouraging children (who nowadays are potential couch/computer potatoes) to read. And generally I would encourage all types of reading - comics, interactive books, whatever. But since there is su

Four children and their dog have gone to stay with their Uncle’s friend, only to discover mysterious goings on during their stay. A flashing light in the middle of the night leads them on an adventure to pursue a group of smuggler’s in the area, an adventure which deepens with the disappearances of their Uncle and their close friend. With unsuspecting twists, the children investigate the goings on and get to the bottom of this thrilling encounter.

It is a good book. I liked it because there is so much adventure. I like the way Timmy always stays on guard no matter what happens. Even though he is separated from Georgina, (George) he still helps Uncle Quentin as though he is his Master.

Things get off to a cold and windy start in this fourth installment of the Famous Five series, as the four chums (plus Timmy!) arrive in the country for holls only to discover that Kirrin Cottage is not only cold, but battered by wind! "It's awfully cold!" opines sweet Anne, "and windy!" Anne, of course, will make a man a good little housewife some day. "It's the wind," says Aunt Fanny, who is already a good little housewife, "making it cold!" Julian, however, who is a tall, strong boy with tall ...more
This was a dramatized audiobook, short and enjoyable, even for an adult - or at least an immature one, as in my case. As a kid, I would've loved it. Lots of unsupervised adventure - what kid doesn't like that?

"Five go to smuggler's top" was actually one of the last Five books I read, even though it is number 4 in the series. It was hard to find a copy originally, and I had to make do with a more modern publication than some of the others I own.

What starts off as a lovely easter holidays at Kirrin soon turns into adventure, with a large tree hitting the house making it impossible for the children to stay there. They are packed off to stay with a friend of Uncle Quentin's, and his son, a boy Julian and

Another trip into my childhood :) and I enjoyed every minute of it. The five are staying in an old house where the discover secret passages and underground tunnels (a must for children 8 years plus). Are there really smugglers at Smugglers Top? Who's behind the signalling, the kidnapping and all the weird goings on?

In a town which is cut off from the rest of the world, the Famous five must go on a spooky adventure to solve the mystery of smugglers top.

Smugglers, trusting parents, tunnels, baddies with appropriate names such as ‘Block’… this is what childhood is all about. For an adult this is hardly demanding reading; but it does bring back happy childhood memories of the picnics we ate (an awful lot of hard-boiled eggs … which nowadays might be viewed as a cholesterol risk!) and the games of adventure and tremendous imagination we used to play outdoors after reading books such as those in the Famous Five series. I don’t care how good compute ...more
Aha! The first adventure away from Kirrin. By now the "George is/could be separated from Timmy" plot is getting a little old, as is the Timmy-ex-machina. It's fun story if you haven't read the others recently, I suppose, and there's more secret passageways and Uncle Quentin getting into trouble... It's more of the same, of course: nostalgia for the simplicity of childhood, plus children knowing better than adults, plus mysteries and secret passageways and at the end a friendly policeman coming a ...more

Really needed the comfort of childhood and this was the perfect fit. Such a lovely story and reading it feels very much like a warm bath after a long day.

Fancied a touch of nostalgia and wasn't disappointed. Still enjoyed it 60+ years on.

Reading this with my 9yr old. I don't think I read this one as a child so we were both gripped by the mystery-we had two theories about the mysterious Block and couldn't wait to see if we were right.
My daughter loved it and proclaimed it a 5 star book.
I'm a little more discerning and found the setting a bit odd as well as a house positively riddled with secret passages. One room had a massive pit below it yet no one knew-would it not be echoey, or draughty?

The Famous Five books, like a lot of childrens books tend to have a predictable plot. However whilst you know that the Five will succeed and have a fun time while they are at it the plots themselves aren't so eye rollingly obvious.

This was very much the case with this book, you know from the title that smugglers are going to be involved in some form but the manner in which they are involved is very different from what you would expect.

It is also rather refreshing for the Five to be away from Kir
Dan. Thompson
Five Go to Smuggler's Top is a fine tale, and a brilliant addition to the series so far! It is sort of an amalgamation of the previous instalments: secret tunnels, funny goings on, smugglers, hidden passageways ... but Blyton ups the violence in this one, which is great. It is completely suitable for children to read, but it has a dark atmosphere, which heightens the tension and increases the thrill of the adventure.

It is the first time we properly leave the usual setting we've become accustomed

The famous five are once again in the middle of an action packed adventure. Old tunnels and secret staircases maybe a good play area but it is also a good hideaway for smugglers....

Tomboy George, her three cousins, and her dog Timmy are joined this time by a new friend. He's a boy, a school chum or theirs, and is called Sooty because of his dark hair and complexion. He lives at Smuggler's Top with a sister, a grumpy dad, and a deaf butler. So off the Famous Five go to spend their Easter hols having adventures, including foiling the evil schemes of a ring of smugglers. As a libertarian, I always object whenever smuggling is assumed to be a crime, as in my mind smuggling is ...more

The Five (Anne, George, Julian, Dick and Timmy the dog) are back on an adventure again! Now they've gone to their friend's house, a house full of secrets - Smuggler's Top...

There seems to be some signalling going on, and some kidnapping and smuggling. But who kidnapped Sooty and Uncle Quentin? Was it Block, the weird servant of Mr. Lenoir, Sooty's father? Was it Mr. Barling, a well-known smuggler? Or was it Mr. Lenoir himself? There are a lot of bad men to choose from as you get further into the

Loved the Blyton books as a child. My friends and I would stage "adventures"
based on the books. Like Doctor Dolittle, these books sadly reflect the times in which they were written. Sexism and racism do appear and should be edited to reflect our raised consciousness. I also have read about Blyton's personal life and persona. Although disappointing, I still have wonderful memories of time spent with her books. More absorbing and inspiring than the overall "chick lit" favorite, Nancy Drew. As a ki
I read the first Famous Five when I was child, it was a great series of books, I love it so much.
It is a great book. A book about adventure with four children and their dog have gone to stay with their Uncle’s friend, discovering mysterious things during their holiday.
They explored a lot of places and discovered a lot of things. The most memorable adventure is when they passed through the creepy and dark long tunnel, through the tunnel they went into different rooms. There was even a big insect

Seperti biasa, selalu suka petualangan Lima Sekawan yang penuh kejutan.
Kali ini, mereka bertualang di Sarang Penyelundup, dekat-dekat Bukit Buangan. Hmm..bahkan dari namanya saja aroma petualangan sudah tercium. Hihi ...

Cerita diawali dengan angin ribut yang sukses menjatuhkan pohon besar menimpa pondok kirrin. Mau tak mau, Lima Sekawan yang baru tiba harus mengungsi. Beruntung, ada tawaran dari teman Paman Quentin yang tinggal di Sarang Penyelundup. Petualangan pun dimulai.

3.5 stars I guess. Not that it matters much outside of my head. Anyway.

I read this one in German as it was the only copy I had and also couldn't find a hint on the interwebs that the Famous Five serious was as heavily edited in German as the Twins at St. Clare's one. Only the names, oh my goodness, so many of the names are different. I will never understand this need to Germanify names but okay. It makes things so much more confusing.

Of course this was a short read as it is intended for kids but

This is the first of the Famous Five (Freunde Funf in German) books that takes place away from Kirrin Cottage and the surrounding area. Once again it is holidays (and it is Easter, which sort of throws the books out of order since book two was during the Christmas break, and the third book was during another unnamed break, however, despite my lack of knowledge about 1940s English School terms, it seems as if the five have skipped some holidays to arri
