The strangest in the series!
on 15 February 2004
This is one of the two of the famous five books that I have always thought of as strange. It's very atmospheric and in places a little frightening. On an unexpected weekend away from school the 5 meet up and go on a hike - but a storm and an escaped convict conspire to make this a very strange and exciting weekend indeed! But by following a map and using an old raft the gang try to beat the crooks to a haul of stolen goods.
