This first book in the series begins with the secret seven Society already formed. According to my research, the formation of the group happened in a short story called "The Secret of the Old Mill" that was written in 1948.Peter and Janet call a meeting (as happens in the first chapter of almost every secret seven book), and decide to write notes to invite the members. This is when they choose the shed at the bottom of Peter and Janet's garden as their meeting place. To introduce the characters, the children think aloud while writing the notes..."Let's see—we want one for Pam, one for Colin, one for Jack, one for Barbara—who's the seventh of us? I've forgotten.""George, of course," said Janet.I found this quite funny, seeing as they had originally formed the society with a group of their friends—and then forget the name of one of the members!They decorate the shed in a fashion which sets the scene for the rest of the series—flower pots and boxes as chairs, cushions, and the large green letters "SS" on the door.
Ah, the Famous Five! In this first book, we open with Julian, Dick and Anne at home with their parents, chatting around the breakfast table. Julian asks his mother if they're going to Polseath as usual for the summer holidays—but to the childrens' surprise their parents have decided they want to go away on their own to Scotland. The children must go to stay with their Aunt Fanny and Uncle Quentin, down by the sea at Kirrin Bay. They have a daughter by the name of Georgina, who is very lonely and could do with the company of a few cousins. And so plans are made, and they all pile into the car and set off.We're introduced to Uncle Quentin, a clever scientist who spends all his time studying. He's a fierce-looking, short-tempered man who tries to be nice but can't help getting irritable at the slightest thing. We learn that he carries a heavy burden because his work, though important, just doesn't bring in enough money to ensure financial security for his family. The of this burden is unclear, but at this stage in the series there's no sign of a hired cook, which means they must be poor! Aunt Fanny makes all their picnics in this and she's a sweet woman who the children adore from the outset.And then there's Georgina, who looks and acts like a boy and won't answer to her proper name. They must call her George, she tells her cousins, or else she'll ignore them. She makes a big deal about how boys are better and stronger at everything, and that she's a stronger swimmer than most boys and can row a boat like any boy can, and so on...and so therefore she wants to be treated as a boy and not a sissy girl like Anne, who still plays with dolls. There's a lot of tension at first; George has always been alone and believes she has no use for silly cousins.she hasn't decided whether or not she wants to be friends with them, she says. Julian, tall and bossy from the start, insists that he, Dick and Anne are keen to be friends but they're not going to beg for her friendship, and he makes the point that they might not want to be friends either—something George never considered. After that George decides that these cousins might be all right after all.She then introduces a great friend of hers—Timothy the dog, whom she has hidden away at a fisherboy's house for a year because her father got annoyed one day and ordered she get rid of the mongrel.
