172. The Mountain of Adventure by Enid Blyton
The four children, their parrot Kiki, mother/aunt and "Old Bill" plan a quiet holiday in North Wales. However, as usual, adventure finds the children when they go off riding donkeys on a camping trip. First published in 1949 this story does not meet today's standards of political correctness particularly in Blyton's handling of black and Japanese characters.
