Five Go to Smuggler's Top

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Five are sent away to Smuggler's Top after a tree blows onto Kirrin Cottage. Once there they make friends with Sooty and his sister Marybelle. However their father would not have dogs in the house so Timmy had to spend his time there in secret passages. The boys spotted a light flashing in the house's tower. They think it is Block (the manservant) in the tower but then see him in bed at the same time. Uncle Quentin comes to stay with them but mysteriously disappears along with Sooty. The Five find a secret passage leading underground to where Sooty and uncle Quentin are held captive with Timmy. They fight off the kidnappers and go back to the house where they realise Uncle Quentin and Sooty's father are planning to drain the marshes, stopping the smugglers, and Block had been put into their household to stop the plans. They call the police to capture the smugglers using Timmy to find them in the underground tunnels.

Good clear pages with some foxing. Wear to edges and boards, spine detached down one side and small inscription to front endplate.
