Brief Summary: George and Timmy are watching a storm from an upstairs window at Kirrin Cottage when a flash of lighting reveals a small figure running along the cliff path. The next day they discover a boy sheltering nearby. He's on the run from cruel carers and begs George not to tell anyone he's there. So, when a strange couple turn up asking questions, George decides it's time to find him a new hiding place...These prequels are an ideal lead up to the Famous Five books for contemporary 7-10 year old readers. George was Enid Blyton's favourite and most fully realised character, whom she based on herself. Timmy was based on her own spaniel, Laddie.
