An exciting, suspense filled story for young children.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Five on Finniston Farm (The Famous Five) (Paperback)
This book had everything in it, goodies, baddies, secret tunnels, treasure and even a dog or two (woof as Timmy would say). The five go to stay on the farm and meet the Harries (twins Henry and Harriet) and their family including fierce old Great Grandad. They discover an American and his son trying to buy up the old bits of the farm, and then they discover that there once was a Finniston Castle on the site. The American starts to excavate, and the five and twins are devastated, until that is they find the entrance to the secret tunnel! In a riveting final that includes Great Grandad swinging a centuries old sword round his head, the Five, and the family of Finniston farm triumph over the American's greed. And as ever they have had another excellent adventure with a fine, happy ending!!! My kids enjoyed the book so much we had to read it again straight away!
