Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann and Jack are determined to explore the mountain and uncover its secret, but first they must escape from a pack of ravenous wolves and a mad genius who plans to rule the world!

He’s not insanely superstitious and terrified of evil spirits – he just pretends to be, and everyone assumes that’s true because he’s black. Refreshingly, however, Blyton acknowledges just how nightmarish this all is, and there’s a definite edge of brittle trauma to many of the characters.I have referred to it as a TV movie before and it does very much watch like one, but I am happy to be corrected. Philip finds a boat and climbs in, only for a man in a wetsuit to come up from the water behind and get him in a chokehold. She is also the author of other favourites including The Secret Seven, The Magic Faraway Tree, Malory Towers and Noddy.

Who is the strange, pompous foreign boy Gustavus Barmilevo invited to the children's home by Bill for the holidays?I think these must have been very well received at the time of writing, with only the first one or two books of the other Mystery/Adventure series in existence (Famous Five was the most advanced, up to book 3 at the time The Island of Adventure was released). We start off the book with two separate sets of children (not very happily) living with aunts and uncles. Blyton seems to use very similar characters in both sets of books and in 'The Adventure' books the children seem more sophisticated but for me not as likeable.

The first section of the story, which is set at a teacher's home, is there mostly to describe the characters and get them all together.
