Love Enid's books and always will. I am now 54 and still reading. Almost finished reading the Famous Five series. Book 21, Five Are Together Again, is a bit of a quandary. What has happened to George? She was adamant about not going to school without Tim so only went to Anne's school because pets were allowed!
BarneyBarney says: Sadly, errors crept into several of Enid Blyton's later books as she was beginning to suffer from dementia and her mind was no longer as sharp as it had been.

Hello! I just finished reading Secret Seven Fireworks. It was incredible.
BarneyBarney says: It's good to know that you enjoyed it, Rupsa. Good Work Secret Seven is another atmospheric story about Bonfire Night.

A friend gave me a copy of The Yellow Fairy Book. It has no date it was printed and I would like to know. It says Newnes on the spine and is very thick paper. The first story is about Princess Fenella. Can you help, please?
BarneyBarney says: If you look up the title in the Cave of Books you'll find lots of information about it, Betty.

Hi Barney, is the Enid Blyton Exhibition coming anywhere near Birmingham? I did see it briefly in Newcastle but want to see it properly. Birmingham's new library would have been a great centre for it - it's huge! Well worth a visit. How can I find out where smaller Enid Blyton gatherings are if close enough for me to get to as I don't have transport and train fares can be pricey?
BarneyBarney says: Hi Sue, I don't yet know whether the exhibition is going anywhere else after Canterbury and Plymouth. There are no Enid Blyton gatherings planned at present, but they're usually arranged by forumites so keep an eye out on the forums.

Way back in May of 2009 I asked a question about the title of a story by Enid Blyton. Well thanks to the 'Cave of Books' I took a chance and ordered a book collection - The Forgotten Pets and Other Stories - and it has my story. The title is 'The Rich Little Girl'. The story is just like I remembered it from so many years ago. So once again I have to thank you for this wonderful site and all the hard work that has gone into it!
BarneyBarney says: Thank you very much for letting us know, Spotkin. I'm glad you found the story - you've put a wag in my tail!
