Who knew? The Five Little Peppers and the Bobsey Twins are alive and well and living in England. Enid Blyton's Famous Five series throw groups of spirited British children together for adventures that are often dangerous but always lack violence, blood or gore. The Famous Five--four cousins and a dog--mix boys and girls, all somewhere between the ages of 8 and 13 years old in adventures.In FIVE ON KIRRIN ISLAND AGAIN, the Five foil a plot to steal a scientific discovery by sneaking around in underground (and even under-ocean) caves. The childish voices reproduced with crisp British accents by Francis are beguiling. In fact, the cheerful, plucky tone of this actress's readings is the most appealing thing about this volume, adding life and believeability to the pedestrian writing and unlikely plot twists.
