Book Description

1 Nov 2011
All 21 original Famous Five books in a slipcase - the ultimate collection to introduce the best-known and most popular world of our greatest storyteller. These are the original books which children have been enjoying since the 1940s. Meet Julian, Dick, Anne, George and George's dog, Timmy, who have adventures and solve mysteries on and around Kirrin Island. They encounter smugglers, thieves, runaways and other strange and mysterious people - both good and bad. The Famous Five began life as eagerly-awaited magazine serials which achieved an instant following. So popular were the books that readers urged the publishers to establish a Famous Five club. The characters have inspired board games, stationery, a play, and two TV series. Having celebrating 70 fabulous years in 2012, it's clear the Five are here to stay for a long time to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to childhood!! 25 May 2011
By Kizzy
I read some of these books when I was a child and was transported into a world of adventure. Everyone wanted to be like the Famous Five. Im now 58 with 3 Grandchildren and was over the moon when I found the full set of these lovely books, just had to order them. The seller was amazing, no problems and quick delivery. They now have pride of place on the bookcase in our conservatory, waiting for the day when our Grandchildren can read them. PERFICK!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Famous Five! 6 Jan 2012
This box set is stunning! All 21 books together in one set. All the books have brilliant artwork depicting the Famous Five on the covers and i really couldn't be happier with my purchase. Having grown up with the famous five it's the perfect set to pass down to the generations to come, so they can follow George, Richard, Julian, Anne and Timothy's adventures :) Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a bargain! 1 Jan 2012
By Anne M
Bought for my 11 year old niece who recently started reading and loving the Famous Five books. Who could resist the entire 21 books for only 30, a steal. And as they came as a box set they made a smashing Christmas present, she was delighted with them.

Ordered this for my daughter's 8th birthday. Arrived a mere two days later. I was very impressed with the packaging which was protected in lashings and lashings of bubble wrap. My 'famous five mad' daughter couldn't have been happier. I would definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 11 July 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Famous Five Classic 21 Book Box setI bought the last half for my 8 year old Grandson last Christmas as he already had read the first lot. That cost me 25 odd My 6 year old granddaughter has also read two of the books so I am getting this set for her 7th birthday in a couple of weeks.. Excellent value. And wonderful make believe stories. Even my grandchildren know they would not be able to go on these type of holidays, but they can dream, just as my children did, and just as I did. Would not want the up to date versions.

Cameron, aged 7, read the first two of these books within a few days and is eagerly looking at the box to read the rest. I am so pleased that books such as these still encourage young readers.

By Carly

I got one of these as part of the "Lightening Deals" promotions and thought it would be a lovely memory present for my Fiance who used to read them as a child. The first set I ordered, the box they came in was severely ripped in the top corner so I sent it back. When I received a replacement, a few of the books were slightly ripped at the bottom. I was very disappointed because I didn't think I would get another one before Christmas but the assistant assured me she would keep looking for them because they had none in stock when I requested another. She then proceeded to give me a refund even though I asked for a replacement and I didn't hear anything from her, but I found another one in stock by myself so I rang up and the another assistant honoured the price because I told him I was supposed to receive a replacement and not a refund. However, when I received the item, it was the same one with the ripped books that I has sent back!!! It was too late to send it back and get another replacement before Christmas so I had to keep this set, but i'm still really disappointed.
