An intriguing book review on “Five Go Off To Camp”, a famous adventure of Five by Enid Blyton
Children get into the good habit of reading books right after reading some of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. This is not always the case for everyone. But given my personal experience, I fell in love with books right after reading my very first Enid Blyton novel “Five Go Off To Camp”. I started reading books from my childhood, but I tell you that this book revived my long lost flair for reading or maybe I realized that I was born to read books.
A VERY USEFUL ASPECT:
Although “Five Go Off To Camp” is the 7th book in the Famous Five series, Ms. Blyton makes a point of presenting a vivid description of the main characters that keeps new readers from being left blank.
THE FAMOUS FIVE:
The adventure begins when the four children Julian, Dick, Anne, their cousin Georgina and her dog Timothy decide to spend their summer holidays alone to camp in the moors. Much to their disappointment, their parents appoint Professor Luffy, an insect researcher, as their caretaker.
THE SUDDEN TOUR OF EVENTS:
As they reach the moors and settle down, all their disappointments fade as they get along easily with the teacher and begin to enjoy the atmosphere of the moors. the deadliest mystery ever solved by them.
THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS:
Although in their pre-teens, they are portrayed as highly responsible, witty, brave, and well-behaved children, which makes them famous and beloved by everyone. Their dog, Timmy as they call him, plays an important role in the process of unlocking each mystery they obtain. In.
THE START OF THE ADVENTURE:
While on the moors, they befriend a farm boy named Jock who shows them around the moors. One day, while playing near a deserted tunnel at the end of the moors, they are confronted by a one-legged old man named “Wooden legged Sam”, who scares them with terrifying stories of ghost trains coming out of the deserted tunnel every night and vanishes into thin air. He threatens them and asks them to stay away from the haunted place. But the Famous Five weren’t the kids who liked to stay out of trouble. This little piece of information triggers the children’s thirst for adventure and they decide to spend the rest of the holidays unfolding the mysterious events of the less inhabited moors.
THE SPECIAL DESCRIPTION:
One of the most important things to note when reading this book is the beautiful description of the delights the four children have each day. The way the author describes it may make you salivate even though the menu is all bacon and eggs.
The whole book captivates the readers as if they were enchanted by the spell cast by the 4 children and their dog and makes us feel that we are part of the Famous Five in the moors who unlock the mystery.
