Meet Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timothy. Together they are THE FAMOUS FIVE - Enid Blyton's most popular adventure series. All 21 titles also available as audiobooks! In book seven, the Famous Five investigate spook trains in the dead of night. The trains seem to vanish into thin air, but where do they go? The Five discover an unusual underground tunnel system and a secret train-service. If they follow the tracks, will they solve the mystery? This edition features the original cover art and inside illustrations by Eileen Soper.
Enid Blyton's books have sold over 500 million copies and have been translated into other languages more often than any other children's author. She wrote over 700 books and about 2,000 short stories, including favourites such as The Famous Five,The Secret Seven, The Magic Faraway Tree, Malory Towers and Noddy. Born in London in 1897, Enid lived much of her life in Buckinghamshire and adored dogs, gardening and the countryside. She died in 1968 but remains one of the world's best-loved storytellers.
Enid Blyton knows how to write a suspenseful book and always in an interesting location like on the Moors. You feel as if you are right there with the children experiencing the adventure. It's a fun book whether you're first reading it as a child or years later as an adult.
It's written back some years, but it doesn't matter. It's still an adventure-although in these days, you couldn't live like that and go off without parental protection.
It was most enjoyable, although slightly far fetched. Why would the bad guys go to all the time and effort to fire up and run a steam engine (it takes a couple of hours to raise a fire and heat the water in the boiler to build up sufficient steam to move a train) just to haul a few dozen boxes a distance of about two miles? It would have been much easier to drive a truck through the tunnel.
Nonetheless it is still a fascinating adventure for the Famous Five to solve.
