The Mystery of the Burnt Cottage by Enid Blyton
This is a fantastic children's crime story from the world's best-loved children's author, Enid Blyton. Who could have set fire to Mr Hick's Cottage? There are plenty of suspects: the cook, Mrs Minns, young Mr Peeks and even a tramp. But it's the clues - a grey suspicious footprint and some grey cloth - that point the kids in the right direction. The Mystery series follows the adventures of 'The Five Find Outers' - Pip, Bets, Larry, Daisy and Fatty, as they solve the most unusual crime cases with the help of their dog Buster. Enid Blyton is arguably the most famous children's author of all time. Thanks to series such as The Wishing-Chair, The Faraway Tree-, The Mysteries, The Famous Five and The Secret Seven, she has sold over 400 million books in more than 40 languages worldwide. Her Mysteries stories have charmed generations of children - and they are as popular today as they have ever been.
