The 1950's are long gone but, in this magical book, children of all ages can relive the time of picnics, sandscastles, exploring caves. Just like Enid Blyton did with the Famous Five, or what was done with the Bobbsey Twins, my children were captivated with the exciting story that was told in this thrilling book that involves a ghostly manor, empty caves, a fishing ship, and much, much more. What more can I say except well done Paul Moxham, I really enjoyed this.

It reminded me of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries I read as a kid. They were the books that made me a reader for life. I hope this series will do the same for a new generation.

This is about some young kids and reminded me of something I read when a kid. It is interesting though and keeps you reading.

I've been reading this every evening with my 10 and 7 year old girls. They have LOVED it! It has been just enough of a mystery for them - not too scary, but tense enough to keep them excited and interested. As an adult, I have found the story a little lame in a few parts. I think the author could have thought the story through a little better and made some more interesting events, but overall a really great book, with a clean, good storyline that is interesting.

This novel was absolutely charming. I enjoyed the adventure of the children and totally bought into their somewhat improbable adventures. That is rare for me, as a bit of a critical reader. The boy's personalities were not as developed as I could have wished, but it didn't really matter, as the adventures took first place. I had fun reading it, and I enjoyed the British terminology ("torch for flashlight"). I think almost everyone would enjoy this novel. I will look for more from this author. I was sent this book through LIbrary Thing.

Famous Five Meets Tintin The Mystery of Smugglers Cove by Paul Moxham is the first in his new The Mystery Series. Set in 1950's England, we follow a group of four children (Joe, Amy, Sarah and Will) on their adventures. The first book starts it all off. Three siblings meet a fourth member and together they explore the local caves and get a greater adventure than even their imaginations could have thought of. Reading the first book is very reminiscent of the Famous Five series by Enid Blyton. The author himself states that he took inspiration from it and it really shows. I was a huge fan of the 1995 tv series and it was a large part of my childhood, so reading this book has the rosy tint of nostalgia added to it. Anyone familiar with the Famous Five will know what to expect from these books. Great childrens' adventure stories that never disappoint. I recommend this series to any younger readers, any readers nostalgic for the good old days and especially any fans of the Famous Five series. Disclaimer: This book was sent to me by the author.

Join Joe, Amy, Sarah and Will as they spend the summer exploring Smugglers Cove. This book takes place in the 1950’s, when children still played outside and video games weren’t babysitters. It’s packed with adventure and courage, reminiscent of The Goonies. At times the plot seems drawn out, but overall it’s a great middle grade read. I look forward to seeing what Paul Moxham comes up with next.
