Another Enid Blyton Adventure story! This book, which is quite complete in itself, is another story about the four children and their dog, who in “Five on a Treasure Island” became known and loved by thousands of child-readers. This time the five have another really thrilling adventure, and Georgina, or George as she prefers to be called, is at once the bad girl and the heroine.
Christmas holidays in Kirrin Cottage — a new tutor to coach during the holidays — his dislike of Tim the dog, and the fights George has with him because of this — a mysterious piece of linen found, with queer directions for a “Secret Way.” Sliding panels, cupboards with false backs, moving stones, a secret passage, stolen papers — all these make a most exciting book, which no child will want to put down once he has begun the tale.
Enid Blyton is at her best in these adventure stories. Julian, Dick, Anne, Georgina, and Timothy the dog move through the pages, and we go with them, eager and excited.
