Many thanks, Barney, for your reply. I have purchased a copy of The Land of Far-Beyond and look forward to reading it for my friend. :)
BarneyBarney says: That's great, Pip! I'm sure your friend will find it very special.

A friend of mine who is nearly blind would like to hear The Land of Far-Beyond. Has it ever been recorded on audio of any format, please?
BarneyBarney says: I'm afraid I haven't heard of an audio version of that book. If there isn't one available, maybe you could get a copy of the book and record yourself (or someone else) reading it? It's a great story.

Hi, is The Land of Far-Beyond, first published in 1942, a first edition if it's published by Methuen and Co Ltd, London? Kindest regards, Lou.
BarneyBarney says: Not necessarily as there may have been a number of printings, but it should have the original text.

Does anyone have any of the original Mary Mouse strip books for sale? These were illustrated by Olive Openshaw. As a child my mother bought me the complete set ( costing 1/-) but over the years they have been lent out and sadly not returned. I would be very grateful to know if anyone still has these lurking in a cupboard.
BarneyBarney says: I hope someone is able to help, but your message might be seen by more people if you put it in the "Wanted" section of our forums.

Regarding the poem, I managed to get the correct first two lines from my Mother and then was able to track it down. It is called 'The Face' and was actually written by Edward Wyndham Tennant, a First World War poet! Still, at least she has the poem now. I still love Enid Blyton books. They were one of the things I made sure weren't thrown away when I moved recently, despite my sister's best efforts!
BarneyBarney says: Thank you for letting us know, Pollyanna. I'm glad you were able to track down the poem - and save your Enid Blyton books!
