Brief Summary by Robert Houghton: On a summer holiday in the seaside town of Rubadub, Roger Diana, Snubby and Barney witness sinister goings on – explosions at the secret submarine base, suspicious characters at the old inn, lights flashing at night. Suddenly they are plunged right into the middle of another mystery and of course are determined to solve it! Barney finds work in a Pierot show to be near his friends, and begins to realize that this theatrical setting gives him an excellent opportunity to find his long lost actor father – but who is the saboteur at the submarine base, and who can be trusted? It seems that almost everyone at the inn has something to hide! [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Blyton, Enid

Author Image

Enid Blyton (1897-1968) was a prolific English author of children's books. Born in London, she began writing while still in school. Her first attempts at writing were rejected by publishers which just made her more determined to succeed. She trained as a teacher and in her spare time continued to write. Her first book, a collection of poems, was published in 1922. Her first series of books, "Old Thatch", began in 1934 and eventually encompassed 28 books. In the 1940's she began to churn out books sometimes three or four per year. By the 1950's she was publishing upwards of 50 books per year. In all, she wrote over 750 books which sold over 600 million copies. While critics called her writing unimaginative and lacking literary merit, this did not stop her adoring fans from scooping her books off the shelf. Even after her death, her endearing stories continue to draw the rapt attention of children everywhere. (Enid Blyton Society)
