A book with a number in the title
Five on a Treasure Island
I have a confession to make. I never read any of the Famous Five novels growing up. I knew their basic premise – four middle-class English children and a dog drink lashings of ginger beer and enjoy idealised summer holiday adventures together – but my main exposure to the franchise came from the mid-nineties TV show and being cast as Suspicious Character No. 1 in a drama production (loosely based on the books) when I was eight. However, nothing could have prepared me for the twee nostalgia bombardment that awaited me as I plunged into the first book of the series, Five on a Treasure Island.
My name is Kirsty Morgan and I am a music student at the University of Aberdeen. I like monkeys, the colour pink, the TV show Firefly, Diet Coke and playing on swings.
