- Fourth book in the Famous Five series
- The Five are sent away to Smuggler's Top after a tree blows onto Kirrin Cottage. Once there they make friends with Sooty and his sister Marybelle. However their father would not have dogs in the house so Timmy had to spend his time there in secret passages. The boys spotted a light flashing in the house's tower. They think it is Block in the tower but then see him in bed at the same time. Uncle Quentin comes to stay with them but mysteriously disappears along with Sooty.
