New book: Five And The Beastly Place to Park

301

What immediately strikes me as nice about the new The Famous Five book is that the author Enid Blyton has been replaced by one whose name can be pronounced, namely John Top. Top starts off by placing the five friends in an everyday situation, namely one in which they must replace the propeller shaft in a mask crane (which annoys a colonel) and then the story line begins. The crane disappears without leaving a trace behind a strawberry bed and the colonel is recalled and placed between the books at the local library on the island where George, Julian, Dick, Anne and Tim spend their summer holidays.
