The Famous Five by Enid Blyton. Can't put the individual ones of these in my board, just too many. There are 21 books and I loved reading them all!

The Famous Five go on a caravan holiday, which ends up in another adventure for the intrepid gang when they meet a travelling circus, where some of the circus folk have more sinister plans than just clowning around.
