Five on a Treasure Island is the first book in The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton. In this first book, we open with Julian, Dick and Anne at home with their parents, chatting around the breakfast table. Julian asks his mother if they're going to Polseath as usual for the summer holidays—but to the children's surprise their parents have decided they want to go away on their own to Scotland. The children must go to stay with their Aunt Fanny and Uncle Quentin, down by the sea at Kirrin Bay. They have a daughter by the name of Georgina, who is very lonely and could do with the company of a few cousins. And so plans are made, and they all pile into the car and set off.

When they meet Georgina, they're in for a shock. She looks and acts like a boy and won't answer to her proper name. They must call her George, she tells her cousins, or else she'll ignore them. After a little argument between them, they become friends, and go to explore Kirrin Island; an island owned by George's parents, which they gave to her. Here, Blyton starts on the adventure, a search for hidden treasure...
