Description

A thief is robbing houses in the village, leaving huge footprints that don't seem to belong to anyone. Only Mr Goon, the village policeman, has feet that big and it can't be him!

Reviewed on 29th May 2014

The halfway point in the Five Find-Outers and dog series - apparently aimed at a younger audience than Enid Blyton's other numbered mystery series, but to me still the best.

The title says it all really - there's a thief in town who is never seen, and the Find-Outers once again find themselves mixed up in events. It's another of the excellent mysteries that Blyton's style developed into, with clues everywhere and plenty of opportunities for the reader/listener to guess who the thief is.

One of the best in the set - a good mystery with good characters, although some of the names have aged a little.
