Could you help, please? Our son Robert is registered blind and very much enjoys listening to the Famous Five stories on CD. He used to have most on tape and then updated his collection to CDs only. The only one he has been unable to find in CD version is Five Go Off in a Caravan (he loves caravans). Trying to locate it in time for his birthday on the 30th. Thank you very much. Marie King
BarneyBarney says: I hope someone is able to help, Marie.

Who's your favourite TV George, Barney? For me, 1995 George just wasn't George, way too girly. No one would take her as a boy.
BarneyBarney says: I thought the 1970s George and the 1990s George were both excellent. George is a complex character and it must be a fabulous part to act. I wouldn't mind taking on the role of Timmy myself!

75 years since the first Famous Five book was written! I'm lucky enough to have a full set of first editions which I still enjoy reading. Most are a bit tatty, especially number one which fetches ludicrous money in good condition. The colour prints in the front cover are nice which were dropped in later editions. The audio books are good on CD and follow the original stories with little "modernisation". These stories really got me into reading novels when I was 8 or 9. I used to read them to my kids at bedtime. It says something about Enid Blyton's writing skills when she could write one of these in about a week!
BarneyBarney says: Great post, Stephen! It's lovely that the books continue to bring children and adults (not to mention some dogs!) so much joy.

Was there an Enid Blyton book with a fairy that scuttled in an oak leaf so that if you saw a leaf blowing across the road it might be Mrs ....? I think it had a story of rabbits and possibly three naughty pixies or fairies. It was a hardback and had no dust cover and was mustard yellow.
BarneyBarney says: I hope someone is able to identify the book, Jennifer.
