Will the Famous Five be able to find their uncle?
In Five Go Off In A Caravan, the five decide to hire caravans, and follow a circus that is going up to rest in the hills. Two men shout at them when they visit the circus camp site, so the five set up their own camp further up the hills. Later, the two men politely ask them to return to their original spot. The children refuse, and become suspicious. They keep an eye on the men, and soon find the two of them trying to move the Famous Five's caravan in order to get something underneath. Soon the children fall into an underground adventure!
In Five On Kirrin Island Again, the children find out that Uncle Quentin has decided to work on Kirrin Island. On the mainland, the five meet Martin, a sullen sixteen year old boy.
