Five Have A Mystery To Solve

Yay! I may be middle-aged, but I still hugely adore tales concerning my favourite fictional childhood chums! The Five are asked to look after young Wilfred, a solitary boy who whispers to the creatures surrounding him. Their travels take them to a tiny cottage located in a harbour, in which stands the mysterious 'Whispering Island'. It's a place of local legend, but what's the truth behind the tales of great riches and armed guards?

Once again, a perfect listen. The narrator, Ann Beech brings bucket loads of English charm to the story and the different characters, including Timmy, are wonderfully brought to life. A treat for all ages.

Not as good as other books in the series

A different narrator to the other famous five books we have downloaded. Not as good as the others; had to slow down playback because she read too fast and used the same tone for all characters.
