The Famous Five go on a caravan holiday, which ends up in another adventure for the intrepid gang when they meet a travelling circus, where some of the circus folk have more sinister plans than just clowning around.

The story begins on a hot sunny day when the children sees a circus go by. This gives George an idea for a camping holiday. The others are excited about this and Julian asks his mother to hire a caravan. After a few days they leave for Merran Lake where they befriend Nobby, a boy who works for a circus.
