It was back in 1982 that the brilliant Comic Strip Presents gave us “Five Go Mad In Dorset”. The straight-face Enid Blyton books was turned into this hilarious parody. Finally, after all this time, Bruno Vincent has put together four books that take the idea one step further.
He has come up with Five Give Up the Booze, Five Go Gluten Free, Five Go On A Strategy Away Day and Five Go Parenting and these will catch up with the sleuthing children as adults now.
The worry is that while Julian, George, Dick and Anne will have no problem with the passage of time we are worried what will have happened to dear old Timmy the dog. There could be a heartbreak on the cards there.
