In answer to Tracey (August 23rd) the poem about the policeman and the Queen of Fairyland is 'The Kind Policeman'. It has seven verses and it begins: "I watched a tall blue policeman stand/In Oxford Street and wave his hand,/And all the buses stopped and stood/Behind his back, quite still and good."
BarneyBarney says: Thank you, Anita. 'The Kind Policeman' can be found in these books. Regarding The Enid Blyton Book of Fairies, it's possible that the poem is only in the 1924 edition. It's certainly not in the editions from 1967 onwards.

Hello Barney, I was just wondering if you could give me an update on the status of the copyright for The Magic Faraway Tree? Is it in the public domain?
BarneyBarney says: Copyright lasts until 70 years after an author's death, Samantha, so Enid Blyton's books will remain under copyright until the end of 2038.

After reading an Enid Blyton book I'm just lost in my own world. I am her true fan.

Just found our old copy of the 15th tell a story series. This has two religious stories 'The Tale of the Fisherman' and 'The Good Samaritan'. Just wondering why they are not listed in the contents in the copy you show on the site ?
BarneyBarney says: A few of the things in books published by World Distributors were not written by Enid Blyton, and as there is doubt about these two stories they were left out of the contents listing.

We are looking for a poem, about a tall blue policeman in Oxford Street and a fairy queen, which my gran read when she was a child in the 1930's. We believe it was written by Enid Blyton; she obtained the book by collecting tokens from a newspaper but has since lost it. Can you help? We think it had red writing and a rabbit with a flower on the front.
BarneyBarney says: I hope that this might ring bells for someone reading your message, Tracey.
