I enjoy reading the books to my kids almost as much as they like listening to them. There are parts of the book where it is pretty obvious what is going to happen as an adult this can be annoying but for kids this is part of the charm. If they can piece together the mystery before it is discovered in the book they are all the happier for it. The vocabulary of the book is also great. Every chapter there are at least two words my kids did not know, over the course of time I have heard them using the new words themselves. How people were at a different time. My five year old innocently asked me do they have more than one parent as the kids spend all their term time at boarding school, then in the holidays the parents ship them off to their aunt’s and uncle’s house. The children themselves do seem a lot more self-reliant then most kids today. The thing I notice more than anything is the class divide between the servant and masters.
Due to an accident at Kirin cottage the children are shipped off to Castaway in the town of Smuggler's Top. Here the children find strange goings on in their new friends’ house, as well as a network of tunnels dug in by ancient smugglers. Of course the adults are completely oblivious to all this so it is up the children to deal with it. Another great adventure for the FF, though they are closer to seven in this book. I am 100% sure this book is where Scooby Doo villains got the idea for saying " And I would have gotten away with it too if it was not for you meddling kids and your dog".
