Book A Day Challenge UK: Day 20 – Favourite Cover – The Famous Five

FRIDAY 20th JUNE 2014

Today’s #BookADayUK is my favourite cover.

The Famous Five – Five on a Treasure Island


Image from the Enid Blyton Society website – please click for further info …

This was one of the first full novels I read as a child and that cover will stay with me forever.

This book is what awakened my reading and writing senses.

Never had I  craved adventure so much on bike rides with lashings of ginger beer until The Famous Five came into my life. Oh how I wanted to discover smuggler’s coves and pirates treasure.

Suppose there’s nothing stopping me now … I have a bike, I have ginger beer (normal and alcoholic too) and I live by the sea. Hmmmm …

    I can remember reading The Famous Five with my torch under the bedclothes. The only reason I even had a torch was because of those books. The Famous Five all had one so I asked for one for Christmas

      Haha looking back it made me want one too! There was something so exciting about owning a torch and going on an adventure. I always wanted ginger beer and it never seemed to be around. I’ve made up for it since I discovered Fentimans and Aldi x
