Title : Famous Five : Five Go Off To Camp

Author : Enid Blyton

Main Characters : Anne, Dick, George, Julian, Timmy, Jock, Mr.Andrews and Mr.Luffy

Description of one of the main characters : Mr.Luffy is the head of the boys school. He has a good sense of humour. He is fond of insects. He has many insect specimens. He is always kind with everyone. He goes early in the morning searching for insects. 

Whom I like and Why : I like George as she is brave. She is a hot tempered person. She is independent. She save the lives of the three boys Julian, Dick and Jock by cutting the rope and finding a way of escape from a dark lonely railway yard. 

Whom I dislike and Why : I dislike Mr.Luffy as he is fond of insects (I don’t like insects). He has unusual insect specimens. He always goes early in the morning in search of insects and  returns late at night.

Setting/Theme of the story : Anne, Gorge, Dick,Julian and Timmy plan to camp with Mr.Luffy   in the moors . They all go in Mr.Luffy’s car. The four children and the dog find an unused railway track in which spook-trains run in the night without anyone driving it. They become friends with Jock , the moorland farm boy. He has a step father. His step father warn the children not to go to the railway yard. But the children do not listen and they go. They find that Mr.Andrews, Jock’s step father and his company are black marketers. They steal goods and sell it to the black market. Anne goes and tells the police. The police catch the black marketers.Jock is happy. He is rid of his troubling step father.Jock and the Famous Five have an exciting adventure.

The Part I enjoyed the most : I enjoyed the part when the Famous Five find the unused railway yard and explore it. It is very exciting.

A different ending : The Famous Five tell Wooden-leg Sam that there are no spook-trains. Wooden-leg Sam becomes a good friend of theirs. He does not live in the old railway yard anymore. The yard is used for transportations. Anne, Dick, Julian, George and Timmy go back after the holidays. Wooden-leg Sam is kind to Jock. Jock is happy and no more lonely.
