Jess, my 7-year old little girl, gives it 5 stars.

Comments while reading:

“I hate the Sticks! They are so nasty.”

“Why do English people have to have tea at 4 o’clock in the afternoon? Isn’t that too late? 4 o’clock is my nap time.”

“I hope Aunt Fanny will get better.”

“What is a ‘smuggler’? Why do people have to pay money to the government if they want to bring things from abroad?”

“What do gorse bushes and heathers look like?”

In this third volume of the Famous Five series, events start off on a horrid note as the children discover that the packets of sandwiches they have wheedled from the new kitchen lackey are not very nice—too stale, too thick, and worst of all, not enough butter! However, the narrative quickly recuperates as our four little gourmands (plus Timmy!) devour some delicious fresh-baked bread, cakes, all of a meat pie and several jam tarts, bread and ham and butter and 'stuff', a roast chicken, some fin ...more

This is a pretty good entry in the Famous Five series. It's slightly darker than the first two books but nothing young children won't be able to cope with and enjoy.

What I particularly enjoyed was the twist at the beginning of act three. I didn't see it coming (apparently Sunshine Seaspray did but she's a bit of a smarty pants when it comes to that sort of thing).

Anyway, at book three in our twenty two book Famous Five marathon, I'm not getting bored of the series yet.

So, I’ve been making quite a long revisit to my childhood years and started to read Enid Blyton’s works again. ‘Five Run Away Together’ was an absolute favourite from my childhood years. I lost count how many times I’ve read this particular book, and re-reading it as an adult still does not bores me. ‘Five Run Away Together’ by Enid Blyton is an absolute escapism. Every kid, and kid at heart, should read this book. There is nothing not to like about this book. T

‘Five Run Away Together’ by Enid Blyton is the third in her twenty-one strong series of ‘Famous Five’ books.
Brothers Julian and Dick, their sister Anne and their cousin George (who is a girl but never answers to Georgina and can do anything as well as any boy can) plus of course Timmy the dog are together once again in the summer holidays after coming home from boarding school. George’s mother is ill and her father goes to spend time with her, leaving the children in the ‘care’ of Mr and Mrs Sti

What a thrilling, beautiful,light read! I disliked Anne for being such a baby sometimes, but it was she who put the pieces together!

(view spoiler)
As with all Famous Five books, this is of the same trusted and successful formula.

I loved these books as a child and I am delighted that my girls loved them as children too.

The stories are adventures of a byegone age, yet still hold the attention of children, around the world...... they have stood the test of time well - and for a great reason.

The stories are plausible, fun, adventurous and contain an excellent mix of young characters... with a little bit of everyone in each of them - something

I will have to say that I quite enjoyed this book, especially with the nice little twist at the end. Okay, when I was a pre-teen I pretty much read all of the Famous Five books (I have to watch out because I almost wrote that in German) and loved them. In fact I couldn't get enough of them and even jumped over to the Secret Seven when there were no more Famous Five books to read. However it just did not seem to be the same. Later on, there are c

Buku ketiga dari seri Lima Sekawan ini kembali berlatar belakang musim panas, namun kali ini telah satu tahun berlalu semenjak anak-anak ini bertemu pertama kalinya di musim panas lalu dan mengalami petualangan seru di Pulau Kirrin. Anak-anak pun mulai beranjak dewasa dibanding ketika pertama kali bertemu.

Liburan musim panas kelima sekawan ini masih mereka habiskan di Pondok Kirrin, walaupun dengan kabar yang agak kurang menyenangkan akibat bibi Fanny (ibu dari George) sedang sakit dan Joanna,

Book three: Five Run Away Together

And then it got serious.

If memory serves, "Five Run Away Together" is the second book I got in the collection, and probably the second most read. A correlation isn't obvious; it isn't because I had it before most others that I read it more, but rather and simply because it is better.

Taking a darker turn, this book is, in my humble but always accurate opinion, one of the best in the series. It marks the first moment when t

We finished reading this, this evening. My daughter loved it and insisted we give it 5 stars!

I don't remember reading this one when I was a child, so had no idea where the story was heading. I did wonder whether a tale of a little girl being kidnapped and locked in a dungeon might be a little upsetting for her, but it wasn't.

I'm enjoying re-reading (and reading for the first time) this series. The main plots are exciting, but perhaps some of the stereotyping of roles for the boys and girls come

I read this when I was in school. Grew up reading Famous Five when I was young - with their bike trips, camping holidays and escapes to the sea - loved it.
The reason I picked this up again was because I was quite weary of the serious books I had been reading recently. Nothing like a simple Famous Five book.

I am simply obesssesed with any Enid Blyton book.

It starts with George's mother getting sick so George's aprents leave her and gher cousin and go to a hospital which is very far.So george and his cousins are under the care of A family named Stick.But the Stick's are very cruel and starve the children so they decide to run away and go to the Kirrin island owned by George.So they are living over there when they find that the Stick's have also come over there and are living over there for some reas
I definitely don't like this one nearly as much as the first two. Julian gets pretty mean and I felt pretty sorry for Edgar and his dog. There's also not much action and the back cover gives away something that doesn't even happen until almost the end of the book. The kids liked it well enough though (although they thought Julian was a bit mean but they liked the Sticks getting yheir come uppance so perhaps I enjoyed this more as a kid too)

They got a loaf of new bread, some cold ham, a few tomatoes and a pot of jam. Anne found knives and forks and plates. Julian opened two bottles of ginger-beer.

They had a fine breakfast of tongue, tinned peaches, bread and butter, golden syrup and ginger-beer.

Anne had opened a tin of salmon, two tins of peaches, a tin of milk, cut some bread and butter, and made a big jug of cocoa.

A mysterious uninhabited island with a destroyed castle, eerie dungeon and a ship-wreak. The story of how a few children and a dog catch the villains. The magical writing by Enid Blyton. The recipe for the perfect book.

Written almost 70 years ago, this tale of mystery and adventure, in which four English children and their dog discover nefarious intruders up to no good on their island, is still an exciting, fun read.

My 8 year old and I really enjoyed reading this together. The language and bluntness of the characters had us laughing, and he was absolutely hooked on the storyline. Still a good read all these years later.

The main memory I have of reading this one as little boy was that I learnt the word 'larder'. The larder figures large. Really this book should be called 'Famous Five scoff the lot.'

Born in 1897 in South London, Enid Mary Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to edito
