Summary

Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series.

Five Fall into Adventure
The Famous Five are really worried - George and her devoted Timmy have disappeared. Not only that, somebody has broken into Kirrin Cottage. Will the Five find George and Timmy and bring them home safe?

Five Get into Trouble
The Five need to find their friend, Dick, who, mistaken for somebody else, has been kidnapped. But when the gang finally track him down to an abandoned house, they, too, are seized. Miles from home and help, how will the intrepid Five get themselves out of this mess?

Both stories are abridged and dramatised with a full cast and make wonderful listening for all Famous Five fans. Each story is one hour.

Old Tales Given New Life

I had these adventures on cassette years ago when I was a child and used to listen to then over and over again whenever we would take long car journeys to my grandparents houses. To be able to listen to them again years later (without the distortion caused by the stretched magnetic tape) was a wonderful experience.

The voice acting is classic BBC style audio drama, so you can expect some cringe-worthy moments but that actually fits in perfectly with the style of The Famous Five stories and so it becomes less noticeable and even adds to the nostalgic enjoyment.

These are two great short stories of around an hour each, so perfect to occupy kids on long journeys or on rainy afternoons. Just the right amount of tension and humor to stay interesting without too much thought having to go into it.

A great piece of classic audio that I am thrilled to have found on Auidble.
