143. Five on a Treasure Island by Enid Blyton
In this first book of the Famous Five series, first published in 1942, siblings Julian, Dick and Anne meet their cousin Georgina, who wishes to be called George, for the first time. George is unfriendly at first but the children win her over and she willingly shares her island with its derelict castle and submerged shipwreck. During a storm, the ship gets washed up on the beach and the search for a long lost horde of gold bars begins. George's dog Tim becomes the fifth member of the group.
