Five Have A Mystery To Solve

Yay! I may be middle-aged, but I still hugely adore tales concerning my favourite fictional childhood chums! The Five are asked to look after young Wilfred, a solitary boy who whispers to the creatures surrounding him. Their travels take them to a tiny cottage located in a harbour, in which stands the mysterious 'Whispering Island'. It's a place of local legend, but what's the truth behind the tales of great riches and armed guards?

Once again, a perfect listen. The narrator, Ann Beech brings bucket loads of English charm to the story and the different characters, including Timmy, are wonderfully brought to life. A treat for all ages.

Silly voices

My son loves these Famous Five audiobooks but hated this one because the narrator did silly voices for the children. He said they all sounded like old ladies and it was very annoying to listen to, so much so that we returned the title when he had only listened to a bit of it. Such a shame as the story is great

Not as good as other books in the series

A different narrator to the other famous five books we have downloaded. Not as good as the others; had to slow down playback because she read too fast and used the same tone for all characters.

Fantastic!

It was exciting and met our expectations of characters and reading of the book was excellent.
The story was exciting and the mystery was all-consuming.
