The fifth in the series of eight "Adventure" series. Of all her mystery & adventures series, this was by far my favourite; I preferred these to the more "famous" ones (Famous Five, Secret Seven). Simply, these ones are more exciting!
Jack, Lucy-Anne, Dinah and Philip, and the trusty parrot Kiki, stumble into adventure. I found this story the most thrilling in the series; the four are hiding out, unseen in their cave behind a waterfall. But as well as hiding them, the cave has other secrets...
Chilling and eerie in parts, this book is an complete page-turner!
Any children discovering adventure and mystery books will LOVE this (Harry Potter fans - and parents of fans - take note!)

I bought the Adventure series for my children aged 7 & 10 as I just adored them when I was little. They are just as enthralling now as then and my children absolutely love them too. My son's teacher has also commented on how good his story writing skills are now, "almost like Enid Blyton"! The stories of course do follow a similar pattern but this is of no matter to my children who hang onto every secret tunnel twist, every old map deciphered and each baddie out-smarted. It's also the only thing that will get them off the iPad games to have story time with mum too, so we're all happy! Can't recommend highly enough and I'm about to buy the Mystery (Barney) series now. NB! Make sure you buy the original books NOT the 'modernised' versions which just lose the magic.

As far as Mrs. Mannering was concerned, a peaceful holiday among the Welsh mountains couldn't possibly land the children in yet another dangerous adventure. But soon Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann and Jack are up to their necks in the mystery of a rumbling mountain, roaming wolves, and a mad genius who plans to rule the world.

THE ADVENTURE SERIES

THEY ARE THE BEST FOR A FIRST READ!

Enid’s ‘Adventure’ books (Jack, Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann and Kiki) were the catalyst which encouraged me to start reading more than 50 years ago. Thank you, Enid. The BBC, many libraries, local authorities and alleged educational experts have been completely wrong about the worth of the Blyton works. I can remember having substantial difficulty obtaining the original books. Quite a few shops would not stock them but they were wonderful stories for teenagers! The tales are great to read for their simplicity and straightforwardness.

When one did find copies of the book they were quite expensive all those years ago but great to own. I loved the letter on the back cover from Enid in some editions and the physical appearance of the books as well which I treasured as a youngster with the way in which the books were produced then making them somehow much easier to read.

It’s a delight to read these adventure stories again in middle age although recent editing has diminished some of the memories I have of the original editions and words used then (but I am now getting old).

Never mind… these books remain one of my best friends for life: they began my own reading adventure so do read these special adventures for yourselves.

I still have this original version. This is the fifth book in the Adventure Series with Philip, Lucy Anne, Dinah, Jack. and Kiki. In this Book, Bill and Mrs Mannering and the children go to stay with the Effans's who run a farmhouse in Wales. Unfortunately, Enid Blyton's perceptions of the Welsh are evident, due to the fact that Enid uses phrases like "Indeed to gootness", Whateffer", and "Look You" which I have never heard used in Wales at all! That notwithstanding, it is a good book for children and Blyton Fans. A trip to The Vale of Butterflies is planned with Bill and Mrs Mannering coming on the trip, with the Shepherds brother as a guide.

Everything is coming along fine, until Mrs Mannering has a small accident, which meant that she and Bill couldn't join them as planned on the trip. The children and the guide go as planned, but it soon becomes apparent that the guide can't read, and has got lost. Instead of going to the Vale of Butterflies, they end up near a very unusual mountain. The donkeys and the guide are frightened by the sight of a black face, and the guide turns straight back and bolts with all the donkeys following him (although one Donkey does come back). This leaves the children stranded. In the meantime, Philip is captured and taken into the mountain.

With the help of the kid (Snowy) Philip brought with him, Dinah, Lucy Ann, Jack and Kiki find their way into the mountain. There they discover that two Germans (Meier and Erlick) have got a poor old "king" (Monally) prisoner in the mountain, and who are using him because he claims to have conquered gravitation.
