Enough Lone Pine Club for now Entertaining to say the least I have always liked this story and it never disappoints The heroism of the characters at the end only goes to show how much stock Malcolm Saville put in that particular quality The action is, as usual, enhanced by Bertram Prance s superb illustrations I count myself supremely lucky to have come across this First Edition.

Probably my least favourite Lone Pine, possibly because the twins break the usual pattern and are the ones doing the kidnapping for a change although they are themselves briefly taken hostage earlier in the story It s just all a bit weird possibly Malcolm Saville was too good at depicting the rather grim Greystone Dingle where much of the action takes place usually in the rain, which doesn t help And I know Jenny is a bit loopy, but really wearing a dirty old spoon on a ribbon as a nec Probably my least favourite Lone Pine, possibly because the twins break the usual pattern and are the ones doing the kidnapping for a change although they are themselves briefly taken hostage earlier in the story It s just all a bit weird possibly Malcolm Saville was too good at depicting the rather grim Greystone Dingle where much of the action takes place usually in the rain, which doesn t help And I know Jenny is a bit loopy, but really wearing a dirty old spoon on a ribbon as a necklace There are no criminals as such but this is not actually a welcome change, because instead there is the oddball Mr Wilkins, and the really unpleasant Percy and his family a group that prompt the Lone Piners to be uncharacteristically unpleasant back The plot is a bit of an unbelievable combination of treasure hunting and natural disaster, and it s all over astonishingly quickly Really not the best I loved the few of these that I could afford to buy as a child and thought I d reread this one It s a bit scrappy and probably not the best.Tom buys Jenny an old spoon at a pub auction An old man asks to look at it and tells her it may be ancient and valuable Later they come across the old man being bullied by a family in a caravan and Jenny vows to help him. Not up to the usual standard I have come to expect from the Lone Pine series Just when the adventure began to get interesting it ended What a let down. `Free Pdf ✙ Lone Pine Five ↜ Each of the Lone Pine Stories, which is complete in itself, is set amidst English countryside which you yourself can visitThis is number five in the series, the protagonists of which are David Morton, Richard Dickie Morton and Mary Morton twins , Petronella Peter Sterling, Tom Ingles and Jenny HarmanHere they investigate old Roman remains in Greystone Dingle, near Barton Beach
