Rating: 3 out of 5

Nonsense. But short and moderately amusing nonsense. This was a Christmas gift a few years ago and has been on a shelf waiting to be read since then. I’ve got a couple of books to pick up the library, but it was closed on Friday for essential maintenance 😱 So I had a couple of options - pick something short as a filler, or start a new book and know that I then had to either park it or rush it so that I could get to the library books. I decided on filler and found this in the shelves. I wouldn’t suggest going and buying it, but if you have it sitting on a shelf somewhere it’s probably worth a read, especially if you spent a lot of time in the company of the Famous Five in your childhood as I did.
