Synopsis

A beautiful hardback edition of The Island of Adventure, the first book in Enid Blyton's classic Adventure series, first published by Macmillan in 1944. Gloriously illustrated with the original line drawings by Stuart Tresilian, a ribbon marker and with a foreword by Cressida Cowell, this is a truly special gift to treasure.

For Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann, Jack and Kiki the parrot, the summer holidays in Cornwall are everything they'd hoped for. Until they begin to realize that something very sinister is taking place on the mysterious Isle of Gloom - where a dangerous adventure awaits them in the abandoned copper mines and secret tunnels beneath the sea.
