The Island of Adventure

There’s adventure in every title of this series – and boy, that’s just what you get here. Love the Famous Five or Secret Seven? Time to meet another mega-awesome Blyton sleuthing team. Four kids. One parrot. Tufty-haired Philip is mad about animals. Dinah is his impatient, fiery sister. Lucy-Ann is red-haired, cheeky and impossible not to love. Then there’s Jack, her bird-watching brother. Not to mention Kiki the parrot, who is always telling the kids to wipe their feet! When the four meet one summer, adventure is hot on their heels. Can they solve the sinister mystery of the Isle of Gloom?
