Review by AbigailAdams26
The second installment of Blyton's twenty-one-book series devoted to the adventures of <i>The Famous Five</i> - siblings Julian, Dick and Anne, their cousin George (Georgina), and her dog Tim - <u>Five Go Adventuring Again</u> sees the return of the Five to Kirrin Cottage for the Christmas holidays. Horrified at the prospect of studying during their break, the children soon have more serious things to trouble them, when rebellious George gets into trouble with the tutor, and some important papers go missing from Uncle Quentin's study. There's a thief at Kirrin Cottage, but can they catch him in time...?As mentioned in my review of <u>Five on a Treasure Island</u>, I began my "Enid Blyton Project" last fall, in response to an article which listed Blyton as the sixth-most popular author in the world. As someone with an interest in children's literature, I thought it behoved me to familiarize myself with so prolific and popular an author in the field. I cannot say, after reading upwards of twenty titles (Blyton authored more than 800) that I am overly impressed with her prose, but there is no doubt that this kind of formulaic series fiction fulfills an important role in the development of reading skills in most children.However that may be, I thought <u>Five Go Adventuring Again</u> (like its predecessor) was one of the author's more engaging stories for young readers, despite the extremely predictable plot. I guessed the crime before it was committed, and had no difficulty picking out the guilty party (subtlety not being Blyton's strong suit), but the characters were appealing, and it was entertaining to watch them become involved in another adventure.
