Why should aeroplanes take off from a small and secret airfield in the middle of a stormy night? This and other questions are answered by the Five who are on a camping holiday nearby - and they take part in an exciting rescue in the dangerous tunnels of Billycock Caves.

The Five are on a camping holiday on Billycock Hill, and everything seems peaceful at first. But a visit to a nearby Butterfly Farm brings them into contact with some strange characters, and the Five are curious about the aeroplanes that take off from a secret airfield—but they get a real fright when they explore the long and dangerous tunnels of Billycock Caves.

This is the Five’s sixteenth adventure.--intro. [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)
