Five Fall Into Adventure is the ninth novel in The Famous Five series. Aunt Fanny and Uncle Quentin head off for a holiday in Spain—but not before Uncle Quentin loses his temper with the newspapers for saying exactly what he told them NOT to say! Now everyone reading the paper will know that his valuable scientific work and plans are locked up at Kirrin Cottage, practically inviting would-be burglars to come along and steal them. Disgruntled, he is forceably led from the house by Aunt Fanny and bundled into a taxi. Phew, they've gone—and the house is left in the care of the Five and Joan, the cook.
All in all, a great book, and one where Dick gets one of the lead roles and George takes a back seat. Julian is more grown-up than ever, and Anne is just...well, poor little Anne.
