The Famous Five books that the series is based on are Enid Blyton’s most-loved creations by children around the world. Since the publication of Five on a Treasure Island in 1942, families have grown up following the adventures of Julian, Dick, Anne, George and their dog Timmy. 

The five friends spent holidays exploring mythical places like Kirrin Island, Smuggler’s Top, and Owl’s Dene, bringing along maps, torches, packed sandwiches, and of course, ginger beer.
