The Five Find-Outers: Mystery of the Burnt Cottage

I read the book named The Five Find-Outers: The Mystery of the Burnt Cottage, written by Enid Blyton during the summer vacation. There are nineteen chapters. The author has written in an entertaining way. In a small town named Peterswood, there is an upcoming mystery for the Five Find-Outers to solve. The characters in this story are friends and siblings. There is one dog, a black Scottie named Buster, his owner’s name is Frederick a.k.a Fatty. The youngest of all is Bets. She is always underestimated by her elder brother Pip. Daisy and her elder brother Larry are the remaining Find-Outers. Larry is smart and is involved in every matter of the mystery. Larry called himself, Pip and Daisy – Three Great Detectives. Fatty always boasts about his smartness. They all meet together and solve the mystery of who burnt the cottage. 

I would recommend this book to all of you because it is about friendship, a little teasing each other and a little fighting. There are some risky situations where they work together. The Five Find-Outers find Mr Goon, the policeman, always irritating as he keeps coming their way.  I loved this book because it was mysterious and fun for me. There are difficult words in this book and I learnt many new words. 

My favourite character is Bets, she is very intelligent. She is funny sometimes. Whenever she is teased, Fatty supports her. She gathers many important clues that helps in solving the case. 

This book taught me that we should be alert, have good observation and we should be clever too. If I were to be a member of Find-Outers, I would not let Fatty and Larry go to Mr Smellie’s house at night. They entered the house like robbers and that was not a nice way to find out about Mr. Smellie. Find-Outers should be a little alert while finding the clues because while they were finding the clue a part of Larry’s coat got torn so till the end, they were considering it as a clue. I would want Daisy to be involved more as a part of the group.

Reading mysteries are interesting. I am excited to read the other mysteries solved by the Five Find-Outers!
