Five Go to Billycock Hill is the sixteenth novel in the Famous Five series by Enid Blyton. It was first published in 1957.


The Five are camping again, this time on Billycock Hill, which is near the farm of Toby, a boy and thought he was a hero. When Jeff, a British Air Force pilot, flies off late in a stormy night with the newest aeroplane which is full of secrets, the Five are stunned. The media claims Jeff has flown away and people think he is a traitor. Could Jeff really be a spy? The Five and Toby disagree - Jeff had always seemed to be a trustworthy man
