As a seven-year-old, many many decades ago, I started reading Enid Blytons. I fell in love and never stopped. She taught me about ethics, emotional intelligence, courage, strength, all the while accepting human frailties and idiosyncrasies, in an atmosphere of fun, adventure and respect. Thank you Enid Blyton. You made me a better person.

Does anyone know which story contains a character wearing multiple pairs of spectacles at the same time? The only other detail I can remember is that the others in the story were not allowed to ask why he was wearing so many pairs of spectacles. Please help, been driving me mad for years. Thank you.
BarneyBarney says: I'm not sure if it's the story you're thinking of, but the Ho-ho Wizard in Adventures of the Wishing-Chair wears three pairs of spectacles at once. Peter and Mollie don't ask him about his glasses but he's a sinister fellow and is very angry when Peter refuses to do something he asks.

I am trying to find out whatever happened to Dorothy Richards. Does anyone have that information?

Early 50s bedtime stories. It was a cloudy day but if enough blue sky appeared to make a pair of trousers for a sailor, the sun would come out. I would love to read this story to my grandsons.
BarneyBarney says: You might be thinking of the story A Bit of Blue Sky. Harry and Joan want to play in the garden but it's cloudy and looks as if it's going to rain. Old Nannie Wimple tells them the sun might come out if there's enough blue sky to make a sailor a pair of trousers.

Wow - thanks Becky. I've opened a forums thread on the uncertain future of Ginger Pop, but the shop at Corfe Castle is open summer 2015.
