‘Two jolly fine tents, four groundsheets, four sleeping-bags - I say, what about Timmy? Isn’t he going to have a sleeping-bag, too?’ said Dick, with a grin. The other three children laughed, and Timmy, the dog, thumped his tail hard on the ground. ‘Look at him,’ said George. ‘He’s laughing, too! He’s got his mouth stretched wide open.’ They all looked at Timmy. He really did look as if a wide grin stretched his hairy mouth from side to side. ‘He’s a darling,’ said Anne, hugging him. ‘Best dog in the world, aren’t you, Timmy?’ ‘Woof!’ said Timmy, agreeing. He gave Anne a wet lick on her nose. The four children, Julian, tall and strong for his age, Dick, George and Anne were busy planning a camping holiday. George was a girl, not a boy, but she would never answer to her real name, Georgina. With her freckled face and short, curly hair she really did look more like a boy than a girl.

Enid Blyton's books have sold over 500 million copies and have been translated into other languages more often than any other children's author. She wrote over 600 books and hundreds of short stories, including favourites such as The Famous Five,The Secret Seven, The Magic Faraway Tree, Malory Towers and Noddy. Born in London in 1897, Enid lived much of her life in Buckinghamshire and adored dogs, gardening and the countryside. She died in 1968 but remains one of the world's best-loved storytellers.From AudioFile:
Who knew? The Five Little Peppers and the Bobsey Twins are alive and well and living in England. Enid Blyton's Famous Five series throw groups of spirited British children together for adventures that are often dangerous but always lack violence, blood or gore. The Famous Five--four cousins and a dog--mix boys and girls, all somewhere between the ages of 8 and 13 years old in adventures. In FIVE GO OFF TO CAMP the Five foil a black market smuggling ring by sneaking around in an abandoned train tunnel. The childish voices reproduced with crisp British accents by Francis are beguiling. In fact, the cheerful, plucky tone of this actress's readings is the most appealing thing about this volume, adding life and believeability to the pedestrian writing and unlikely plot twists. M.C.
