Enid Blyton's books are beloved the world over and The Famous Five have been the perennial favourite of her fans.

Now, in this new series of Enid Blyton for Grown-Ups, George, Dick, Anne, Julian and Timmy confront a new challenge: no booze for one month.

Give up alcohol you say? For charity? Why, of course they can! Talk about an easy challenge! Five old friends set about this simple task and find all of a sudden that: the days are longer; they get to see each other for who they really are; the empty laughter of ordinary conversation is so much harder to fake. Yes, they're saving money and losing weight, but the world itself seems to take on a slow, dreary inevitability. Soon they begin to snap at each other, and then fight - until they begin to wonder, have the Five at last found the challenge that will defeat them?

The perfect gift for anyone who has woken up and promised themselves that they will never drink again. Or at least until next weekend.

    Having read all the original Famous Five books by Enid Blyton during my childhood, this parody is hilarious !! Bruno Vincent has nailed Blyton's sentence structure, characterisation and plot development. I have given his other Famous Five titles to my friends as birthday gifts and they've loved them too.
    Ridiculously brilliant fun !
