Findouters Challenge: Book 5. This is certainly among the most interesting of the Findouters’ cases. The story opens with Pip and Bets getting bored in their summer holidays, with the others at the seaside with their parents (they themselves have also been but have been back home for a few weeks now) and no mystery to solve. The children return soon and find Mr Goon busy at work with clearly a new case to solve which they have no clue about. Inspector Jenks doesn’t want them involved either but ...more

This series by Enid Blyton, for me, has something over all her other adventures series: its treatment of girls. Daisy is about as capable as Pip and Larry (though she isn't given as much to do), and Bets is infinitely cleverer than all three of them, second only to Fatty himself and sometimes even surpassing him. What is more, neither girl wants to become a boy herself, or feels any kind of awe towards the male species in general. Bets worships Fatty, of course, as well she might - he is her onl ...more

Kisah dari Pasukan Mau Tahu saat ini agak-agak gimana ya....:) Karena mereka harus mengetahui para Pencuri yang sudah sangat berpengalaman dan harus mengetahui dimana kalung berlian yang disembunyikan oleh para pencuri.

Cerita dimulai dari keisengan Fatty yang suka memiliki ide-ide kreatif yang kadang terlihat aneh. Dan untuk cerita 1 ini, dia mencoba menyamar menjadi seseorang yang tidak akan disangka-sangka/diketahui oleh tim Pasukan Mau Tahu lainnya, sampai dia rela memberikan hadiah buat tim

I would recommend this book that I am reading as it is a good book on mystery and i believe everyone would love it. This book is about a story on Pip, Daisy, Fatty, and Mr Goon. Mr Goon is the teacher while all the other people are a group of friends. Buster is fatty's dog and is loved by all of them. This group of students is a group speciallising on helping police to settle cases and solved mystery. They have been waiting for cases for almost four weeks and eventually could get their case star ...more

Enid Blyton was one of my favourite authors when I was growing up. Out of all of her series of books, I have to say The Five Find Outers’ series was the most read in my class room. Most of the children would fight over these books.
The books are based on a group of 5 children and a dog who go on adventures/mystery hunting during the School holidays, much to the displeasure of the local policeman, Mr Goon. They usually find that they can quite easily solve the mystery because most adults either do

Well, things have got a little irritating in this book.

This time kids actually interfere and try to hide evidence from detectives, because they want to solve the crime first. I would be on Goon's side here, if only he wasn't such an ignorant a*hole. Also, kids are overconfident all the time, not thinking about real danger.

I didn't like the fact that Daisy has almost no role and no voice in the books.

On this book I will finally complain about how unrealistic it is from time to time. No way Fatty

Ah, a world without technology. No feeling that you have to record, sort review and share all the books you've ever read. (Mind you, Fatty would have loved the internet). I AM enjoying re-reading these books that I loved in my childhood.

Worrying that I don't remember one single line from this book (but it was 40 years ago). And don't these kids have an amazing quality of life. A maid, a cook, a gardener, money to buy ices, rarely seen parents, no technology and few choices.

In this one I like the

Blytonia pojalle -projekti on edennyt kolmanteen kirjaan asti. Kadonneen kaulakorun salaisuudessa etsitään jalokiviä ja arvoesineitä vohkivaa varaskoplaa, jonka yhteysmiehenä tuntuu toimivan jatkuvasti puiston tietyllä penkillä istuva vanhus. Juoni oli tällä kertaa edellistä lukaami (Kadonneen kissan salaisuus) huomattavasti parempi. Etenkin vahakabinettikohtaus oli oikein hersyvä. Pojalle upposi jälleen oikein hyvin... taidan kuitenkin seuraavaksi kokeilla Viisikkoja.

salah satu alesan gw suka PMT adalah karena banyak adegan2 di restoran/kedainya, di mana Fatty sering mentraktir anggota PMT yg laen. walopun itu makanan Inggris, tetep aja bikin ngiler hehehehe....
PMT adalah judul pertama yg gw punya dr buku2 karangan Enid, dan lgsg bikin gw jatuh cinta skaligus jd addict bgt sm buku2nya Enid yg laen!

The first book I read in any series is always the best and this was no exception. Bored one day aged 9 and with nothing to read, my sister suggested "The Mystery of the Missing Eggcup" [sic] which turned out to be a great introduction to these stories and possibly the nicest thing my sister had ever done for me. Invokes endless summer holidays and great fun all the way through.

Pretty rubbish Blyton outing with the Five Find Outers. Obsessed with "Fatty' disguising himself, and rather than solving a crime it was all about defeating the local police officer, who is ridiculed throughout.

The mystery itself is almost an afterthought and this is one of her weakest efforts.

Utter bilge - characterisation, credibility and general sense have all gone completely out of the window! This is one of those Blyton books where everything is geared towards bringing to life one single idea that Enid obviously thought was brilliant (Fatty disguising himself as a waxwork, in this case) and the setup is so unimportant to the author that it fails to ring true on any level.

Akan selalu ada soft spot bagi saya untuk para anggota Pasukan Mau Tahu. Pip, Beth, Larry, Daisy, dan Fatty barangkali yang sudah menemani saya semasa kecil, tetapi mereka masih terus berumur dua belas tahun, sementara saya akan terus bertambah tua. Meski demikian, saya tidak akan pernah melupakan mereka.

My review is....there are many clever burglaries going on and it is suspected that members of the gang have their meeting place....The Five-Outers naturally determine to solve these mysteries......

Waar de vermommingen van Dikky een hoofdrol spelen. Betty blijkt de beste detective. Goon geeft blijk van verstand. Weinig diepgang.

She taught for five years before her 192
