Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series. A short story in colour for younger readers.

George's dog Timmy sniffs out an adventure when he spots some suspicious-looking passengers on a train. He is very interested in one of them, but what has he spotted?

Can the Famous Five solve this mystery?

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 text of Five and a Half-Term Adventure (1956) appears in an individual volume, illustrated with lively contemporary colour art by Jamie Littler.

These individual stories have been given a very modern production with creative use of font and layout and zany modern full colour illustrations by Jamie Little.
