THE FAMOUS FIVE 21 EXCITING ADVENTURES! (BOXED SET)
Written by Enid Blyton. Illustrated by Eileen Soper.
Stock no. 2129619
Published by Hodder Children's Books. Circa 2011. Very good condition.

21 paperback editions all contained in a pictorial slip case. B/w illustrations. ISBN: 9781444907957. Editions inside individual books will vary. Edition date taken from slip case. Creasing to a couple of cover edges or bases of spines. Internally books are still excellent. On looking at the numbers across spines, it appears that No. 7 (Five Go Off To Camp) appears to be MISSING! However, it appears that it may have been published this way - as there is not enough room to include another title. Slip case has become damaged; bumped with one large tear to one edge; repaired internally with sticky tape.
