The Adventure series originally comprised eight novels, and contains some of Enid Blytonís most intricate plots. It was aimed more at older readers (pre-teens or possibly even early teens, right at the top end of Blytonís usual target market). In the 1990s, there was a TV series based on the Adventure books, and from this series were spawned eight novelisations. All but one of these novelisations have the same title as their original counterpart. They are nonetheless entirely new stories and written by various British authors. A full list of these TV novelisations is given below. Incidentally, they were all published by HarperCollins in 1997, and none of them are illustrated.

 

No.: 1

Title: The Island of Adventure

No.: 4

Title: The Sea of Adventure

Remarks: According to a review on Amazon UK, this book has a distinctly New Zealand flavour, with the characters going to New Zealand rather than Scotland for their holiday, and old Maori history featuring in the book! (Come to think of it, I think the Adventure TV series was filmed in NZ.)
