Tudo começara, quando Mr. Elbur recebeu uma carta ameaçando-o com o rapto da filha se não entregasse o segredo das investigações a que se dedicara.Desorientado, o c

Another less than inspiring book title from Enid. If all I had to go on was the title, you couldn't pay me to read this book. As I'm firmly entrenched in this series at this point, though, I bravely march onwards...

In this volume, the Five find themselves saddled with an initially unwelcome house guest. The daughter of one of Uncle Quentin's scientist friends has been targeted by kidnappers by a group of shady individuals who are after Quentin & Co's research secrets. To hide the girl, whose

Five Have Plenty of Fun is one of my faves of the Famous Five series.

The Five; siblings Julian, Dick and Anne, cousin George / Georgina and her dog Timmy are staying at Kirrin Cottage with George's parents (Quentin and Fanny).

Uncle Quentin is working on some secret project with two other scientist (including an American). When kidnap threats are made against the American scientist's daughter (Berta) he decides she is to with the Kirrins as he would hand over info to get back his daughter.

Petualangan ke-14 Lima Sekawan!

Di liburan kali ini Lima Sekawan kembali menghabiskan liburannya di Pondok Kirrin. Liburan mengasyikan mereka harus diganggu dengan kehadiran seorang anak perempuan yang harus dilindungi dari sergapan penculik!

Buku Menyamarkan Teman salah satu buku Lima Sekawan yang belum pernah saya baca. Sayangnya, buku ini terasa datar bagi saya. Tidak ada petualangan yang mengasyikan dan mendebarkan yang ada hanya rutinitas yang agak membosankan. Bermain, makan, tidur. Bermain,

A cute adventure.. the 14th adventure for Julian, Dick, Anne, George, Timmy. Uncle Quentin is jolly funny and Aunt Fanny a maverick with angelic hands for bountiful lunch. So is Joanna. Additional characters are Berta, Jo, Sally.

Berta / Lesley / Jane forced to cut her hair and dress like a boy. Add to that, stay with strangers far away from her home in Anerica. This horrid pretense with a bunch of British kids couldnt be wunnerful she must have thought upon her late night boat ride to Kirrin Cot

I find this hard to rate as I read it for nostalgia purposes, having read the whole gamut of FF books when at primary school. I adored them back then, but I find that now I'm picking up soooo many flaws: sexism, elitism, prejudice to name but a few. In this one Enid Blyton even managed to have a good swipe at Americans. Also, I can't believe what an ass**** Uncle Quentin is - never wants to spend time with his only child Georgina and treats his wife like an unpaid slave. "Women are so soft", etc ...more

These books (Famous five) are hands down one of my favorite books from my childhood. All those adventures and mystery …and those sandwiches they always packed! aww, just the best! I would love to read one of these again. To bring back those memories..memories of first experiences with reading books.

I found this in our holiday cottage and read it of nostalgia. I read all of these books as a child 45 plus years ago, and then read them again to my children almost twenty years ago as bedtime reading. They are great fun but so old-fashioned and are racist, sexist and elitist. I remember reading them aloud to my children and constantly having to stop and explain that ‘not everybody has their own cook or goes to boarding school’ and it ‘isn’t always the swarthy looking foreigner that is the smugg ...more

This might be one of my favourite "Famous Fives" just for the additional characters of "Berta", an American girl who comes to stay with the Five, and has several name-changes so she isn't kidnapped, and Jo, the gypsy girl who's assisted the Five in two other adventures. Read this book many many years ago, and still feels fresh, reading it on my Kindle

An action packed adventure with spies and a mysterious house
1 May 2013

It felt that by the time I got to this one Blyton's books had become a little more action packed, and the the world of the Famous Five had become somewhat deeper. This one even brings Ragamuffin Jo back into the adventure, who plays an important role, as well as bringing a new person over from America to hide from potential kidnappers. We even have a much broader adventure where we have scenes on Kirrin Island, in a fair grou

This was one of the first famous Five books I read as a girl, and I've always loved it. I loved particularly how upset George was that Berta made a better boy than she did! For some reason, even though I never dressed or tried to act like a boy, I've always sympathized with George. I was a little tomboyish myself, but I didn't really categorize activities as a boy or girl thing to go- If I wanted to play dinosaurs I did, and if I wanted to dress my sister's barbies and brush their hair I did tha ...more

The famous five is a children novel. It is written by Enid Blyton. The novel talks about scientific project that 3 people are working on it. They are searching for new resources to stop the needs of coke, coal, or oil and then sit in away island to avoid the war. However, there are kidnapers who want to steal the information about the project so they choose to kidnap Elbur’s daughter because the Elbur is the most one know about the project. They threat Elbure if he don’t give them the informatio

Wow, these keep getting worse and worse. So far, Blyton only has three plots, kidnappers (yep, got those here), smugglers (hmm, couldn't fit those in to this book), and circus folk (present and reporting for duty). And here we have added an American girl, who just won't pronounce words properly (i.e. like the British), so we better mock her mercilessly.

Then we learn that George's father is not just a terrible and neglectful husband, but he is an even worse father ("If my daughter is kidnapped,

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

The first part of the book was fun - Enid Blyton writes this inter personal dynamic scenes very well. We have a new girl with a dog and George does not like her or her dog. But the others are fine with her. And Timmy likes the other dog. Generally that part was fun. But the mystery part as usual was a dampy squib. Though Jo is my favorite character, even her entry does not enliven things. Like all the novels she is part of, once again she saves the day. But somehow we don't see the best of Jo he ...more

I dont know, but compare to another series this book is not sastifactory for me. This is a good book, but not enough. But the worst is i just realize that uncle Quentin is not just a bad father, but this story have f****d up logic! He dont want to spent time with his only daughter, even DONT CARE if his daughter kidnapped and everybody forgive him because he is a scientist!

Well aside of that thing, i still enjoy read this novel. This book is really bring a good old memory back :D
Conley Morris
This is a fun book to read if you like mystery.
I liked this book because it kept me on my
toes the whole time and it was very exciting.
My favorite character is George because she
wants to look like a boy and when her friend
has to disguise herself as a boy George is
very jealous. My favorite part is when Dick
and Julian rescue George after she is kidnapped.
I liked this book a lot.
Jake Collins
The ones where George gets kidnapped are definitely the weaker additions to the Famous Five series. (I say this for a second time because it's true!) I find the set-up here particularly weak - Berta should be placed under police protection, rather than left alone with the Five and no adult supervision apart from the cook!

George had another look-alike, this time it was Berta; an American girl who stayed with them. Adventure lurked when she had to be dressed up as boy and Five need to hide her to keep her safe, in Kirrin Island. I love it when George was so furious for being compared with Berta-boy version. AFter all the adventures, they indeed have plenty of fun!

Let's see, how shall we irritate George, who's fragile self-confidence is based on pretending to be male? I know, the family can take in a pretty and feminine young American girl and disguise her as a more believable boy in order to protect her from kidnappers. Good plan; that should fool them. In the end, however, the incredible sulk comes good.
Louise (A Strong Belief in Wicker)
One of the more pedestrian adventures. Cold war paranoia again. An American colleague of George's father is in England, and there is a kidnap plot against his daughter Berta, who thinks everything is swell and wunnerful in England.
Jane Irish Nelson
Not one of the best in this series. This book seems to recycle bits and pieces of previous stories, as George is kidnapped (again), and Jo comes to the rescue (again). In addition, the author mocks Americans and the way she thinks they talk (she does the same in her Mallory Towers series).

First of all, I love Enid Blyton.
Secondly, this was the first novel I ever read.
So you all can guess why I like her.
I credit all my success in reading all the novels I read to to her.
