You won't see any deal with a saving less than 50% today

We've done this a few times and it always seems to go over well. Why wouldn't it? You're getting some serious bang for your buck (as the saying goes), and we're using the profits to stock our offices with fancy coffee.

Win win.

It does leave us horribly short on the word count for this here write up, though. Explaining how a 50% discount works doesn't exactly require your undivided attention.

So instead we'll hit you with this little-known fact: Movie trailers are called "trailers" because they used to be shown at the end of the movies, not before. Eventually common sense prevailed, but the name stuck.



A brand-new exciting collection of Famous Five adventures suitable for children 5 years and older!

Julian, Dick, Anne, George, and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series.

In addition to the Famous Five novels, Enid Blyton wrote a clutch of short stories based on the characters. These were published in magazines and collected in the Famous Five Short Story Collection. For the first time, the complete and original text of each of these short stories appear in individual volumes, illustrated with brand new colour art by Jamie Littler.

Also included in this brilliant collection, set in the world of Enid Blyton's best-loved series, are two newly-created early readers which follow Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog on some special new adventures - illustrated throughout in gorgeous full-colour by Becka Moor. Each story is broken down into six short chapters with vibrant, full-colour illustrations on every page - perfect for shared reading or for newly confident readers to enjoy independently.
