description
The Famous Five have gone on their greatest adventure yet — a trip Down Under to Oz for some gap year fun.

Enid Blyton's books are beloved the world over and The Famous Five have been the perennial favourite of her fans. Now, in this new Enid Blyton for Grown-Ups, Julian, George, Dick, Anne and Timmy head Down Under for some relaxing holiday fun. But will it be the adventure they had hoped for?

Setting up camp in Bondi they soon meet the Sydney Six, a couple of guitar-strumming Kiwis and a rogue South African and find themselves in the thick of Sydney's real estate perils and the attempts of their omnipresent cousin Rupert Kirrin to buy up the local media.

But when the sun, surf and bluebottles have their revenge and things don't quite go to plan, it's time to head for the country for a spot of sheep-shearing and quad-bike riding. Will the country be kinder to them or will their close calls with the Australian wildlife have them heading back to the city before you can say decaf soy latte?

'Treading a fine line between fan-fic and parody, it's a lark of a book that will tickle adults who read the series as kids.' — Sydney Morning Herald, The Saturday Age

'This parody series is packaged as a perfect facsimile of the old Blytons and Five Go Down Under brings the full team on a gap year to Australia, where they are confounded by blazing sun, weird animals and a sad lack of kangaroos at Bondi Beach. It's a hoot.' — Australian Women's Weekly

'Hamley has created a modern spin on the English author's bestsellers with a tongue-in-cheek adventure. — West Australian
