Following the highly successful Famous Five 70th anniversary celebrations and reissues, the next classic Blyton series gets a brand-new look for today's readers - by Tony Ross, one of our most popular illustrators.

The Secret Seven are siblings Peter and Janet, and Jack, Barbara, Pam, Colin and George. Together they are The Secret Seven - ready to solve any mystery, any time - in Enid Blyton's classic series of 15 mystery novels.

In book six, Peter and Janet are the only witnesses when a car is stolen. They saw the thieves, and now the whole of the Secret Seven are involved. But when they realise they're on the trail of a dangerous gang, the Seven don't feel quite so brave.

Have they taken on too much this time?
