Famous Five Colour Short Stories: A Lazy Afternoon
Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series.
It's so terribly hot, the Famous Five are having a lazy afternoon... but the gang don't get the peace and quiet they imagined!
What are the men on the motorbikes up to? Can they be stopped?
In addition to the Famous Five novels, Enid Blyton wrote a clutch of short stories based on the characters. These were published in magazines and collected in the Famous Five Short Story Collection (Hodder). For the first time, the complete and original text of A Lazy Afternoon (1956) appears in an individual volume, illustrated with brand new colour art by Jamie Littler.

Fresh new illustrations in a full-colour format create a tempting first chapter book that brings Blyton to a younger audience, whilst maintaining her original text.

The classic tales have been brought bang up to date with colour illustrations by Jamie Littler... the Famous Five haven't lost any of their charm.
These individual stories have been given a very modern production with creative use of font and layout and zany modern full colour illustrations.
