You'll love this because...
Enid Blyton’s Famous Five are all grown up, and their latest challenge is 21st-century adulting!
Personalise with any name and message
The Famous Five let Dad wander off towards the conifers!
Packed with original artwork by Eileen Soper
A hilarious parody written by Bruno Vincent
Also available in a luxury gift box
In this cheeky new Five Lose Dad in the Garden Centre book, Julian, Anne, Dick, George and of course Timmy are back, but this time, the adventure search isn’t for hidden treasure on Kirrin Island, but for Uncle Quentin in a garden centre! The Five decide to buy Quentin a new shed for his experiments, but things go awry when they happen to misplace him somewhere within Garden Universe.
This personalised Enid Blyton adult book is perfect for wandering fathers and scatterbrain kids alike. It possesses all the charm and style of the original Famous Five book series, with an added tongue-in-cheek hint of 21st century reality.
How to Personalise the Five Lose Dad in the Garden Centre Book
Personalise this book by adding a name of up to 12 characters and a special message of up to 40 characters to the inside title page.
There is also the option of a luxury gift box to round off a wonderful Famous Five gift. Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.
Book measures 14.8 x 21cm. Including original artwork by Eileen Soper, Quercus Editions Limited are the owner of all rights, copyrights and trademarks in the Enid Blyton character names and illustrations.
