Book Details

Book Description

Borrowing some scissors is the beginning of an adventure for the Famous Five, as George manages to get mixed up with some burglars. Julian, Dick and Anne are too busy eating ice cream to realise that George is in trouble!

Will the Famous Five manage to catch up with the burglars and save the day?

In addition to the 21 novels in the Famous Five series, Enid Blyton wrote a clutch of short stories based on the characters. These were published in magazines and were collected in the Famous Five Short Story Collection (Hodder). For the first time, the complete text of George's Hair is Too Long appears in an individual volume, illustrated in full colour.

Book Description
Original Blyton stories are paired with brand new colour illustrations by Jamie Littler in a new and exciting format.

About the Author
Enid Blyton, 1897-1968, wrote over 600 books for children, and is still regarded as one of the most popular of all children's writers. In the 2008 Costa Book Awards, Enid Blyton was voted the best-loved author, ahead of Roald Dahl, JK Rowling and Shakespeare. Her books are translated into more than 90 languages, and have been adapted for film and TV. In 2012, Hodder Children's Books celebrated the 70th anniversary of the first publication of the Famous Five by reissuing the first five titles, in aid of the charity House of Illustration, with new covers by Quentin Blake, Chris Riddell, Emma Chichester Clark, Oliver Jeffers and Helen Oxenbury."
