The Famous 5 is the name of a series of children's novels written by English author Enid Blyton. The first book, Five on a Treasure Island, was published in 1942 (=16).. The novels feature the adventures of a group of young children – Julian, Dick, Anne and Georgina (George) – and their dog Timmy..Jo, clever but wild, joins the Five on several adventures.. She is approximately the same age as the children and is a tomboy like George.. Her parents were in the circus, but her mother left and her father was imprisoned for theft.. She admires Dick and thinks the world of him..Joanna is the housekeeper at George's house. She is an extremely kind woman who is often present at Kirrin Cottage when Uncle Quentin and Aunt Fanny go off somewhere. All the 4 cousins are extremely attached to her.. She is sometimes referred to as Joan..Quentin is George's father, and a world-famous scientist, who is kidnapped or held hostage in several of the children's adventures. He possesses a quick temper and has little tolerance for the children on school holidays, but is nevertheless a loving and caring husband, father and uncle, and is extremely proud of his daughter..

The Daily Mail is a British daily middle-market tabloid newspaper owned by the Daily Mail and General Trust..First published in 1896 by Lord Northcliffe, it is the United Kingdom's second biggest-selling daily newspaper after The Sun..It was at the outset a newspaper for women, the first to provide features especially for them, and as of the second-half of 2013 had a 54.77% female readership,the only British newspaper whose female readers constitute more than 50% of its demographic..It has over 100 million unique visitors per month to its website..The Mail was originally a broadsheet but switched to a compact format on 3 May 1971, the 75th anniversary of its founding..

On 5 May 1946 the Daily Mail celebrated its Golden Jubilee. Winston Churchill was the chief guest at the banquet and toasted it with a speech..In late 2013 the paper will move its London printing operation from the city's Docklands area to a new £50 million plant in Thurrock, Essex... I was 16, I went to work for a newspaper in Hong Kong. It was a rag, but the editor taught me one important lesson..The key to a great story is not who, or what, or when, but why...
