The Famous Five meet up at Kirrin Station and learn Aunt Fanny and Uncle Quentin will be holidaying in Spain, leaving the Five at home with the household's cook, Joan. On the beach, the Five meet a gypsy girl called Jo. After the house is burgled, George is kidnapped, and Jo comes with a card requesting some documents to exchange for George. The wrong papers are provided, so George is not released. Jo eventually leads Julian and Dick to a cliff-top house, where George is captive in a tower. Jo climbs up some ivy and swaps places with George. Jo later locks up three of the kidnappers, including her own father. She and Julian, George, Dick and Timmy the dog manage to make a getaway by boat. The police are alerted. Three of the criminals attempt to escape but their helicopter crashes. Joan says that her cousin would like to look after Jo, as Jo's father will be sent to prison.
The novel was adapted as a 2014 German film production, Fünf Freunde 3.
