To celebrate 70 years of the Famous Five, Quentin Blake has created brand-new cover artwork for the original book in the series - and is joined by Helen Oxenbury, Oliver Jeffers, Chris Riddell and Emma Chichester Clark, who have reimagined the Five on the next four titles. These anniversary editions of the classic text of Enid Blyton's most beloved series benefit the House of Illustration, the world's first dedicated home for the art of illustration. (www.houseofillustration.org.uk) There's a shipwreck off Kirrin Island! But where is the treasure? The Famous Five are on the trail - looking for clues - but they're not alone! Someone else has got the same idea. Time is running out for the Famous Five, who will get to the treasure first?
Enid Blyton died in 1968 but remains one of the best-known and best-loved writers of children's stories. She is consistently voted a children's favourite in author polls. She has over 600 children's books to her credit, including the Famous Five series, the Secret Seven series, the Naughtiest Girl series - all Hodder - and the Malory Towers and St Clare's series, both available from Hodder on audio.
