Five Go Adventuring Again (published in 1943) is the second book in the Famous Five series by the British author, Enid Blyton.


Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy return to Kirrin Cottage for the Christmas holidays. Dick and Julian have a tutor, Mr Roland, during the holidays in order to catch up with the work they missed while off school sick. George's parents tell Mr Roland to teach George also, since George has just spent her first term at boarding school and is behind her age level. One day during the holidays, the children visit Kirrin Farmhouse. The occupants, Mr and Mrs Sanders, let George show her cousins all round the farmhouse, and show them some of the old secret cubby-holes there. George asks Mrs Sanders if she can show her cousins the cupboard with the false back on it upstairs, but Mrs Sanders tells her she is cleaning the room as some boraders are due to arive at the farmhouse. When searching in a hole in the wall, Dick finds a piece of paper, with instructions on it written in Latin.

The four take it back to Kirrin Cottage and ask Mr Roland what the instructions on the paper say, as he reads Latin. He tells them that it is something about a room facing east with eight wooden panels in it, and the panel must lead to somewhere! That night, George goes downstairs to see to Timmy, who has been made to sleep outside in the freezing cold because Mr Roland does not like dogs. George goes into her father's study to get the front door key, and finds Mr Roland standing in the study. He tells George he heard a noise and came to investigate, but George finds it very suspicious and is determined to investigate with the others. This leads to some exciting developments.
