Most of the website is available to all, but Society Members have exclusive access to secret parts as well! Join the Society today and start receiving your copy of the Journal three times a year.

Thanks Barney. Strange thing noticed on Kindle. In Five on a Treasure Island they call Aunt Fanny Aunt Fanny, but in the Faraway Tree series, Fanny is called Frannie.
BarneyBarney says: The reason is that the Famous Five series is published by Hodder and the Faraway Tree series is published by Egmont/Dean. Different publishers have made different decisions when it comes to updates and alterations.

I have read Enid Blyton for years - 55 years nearly. She has really made me a better person in every way. Thank you, Enid Blyton. I love you so much.

Can anyone help me? When I was younger my father would read to me before going to bed. I have unfortunately lost my prize books due to a fire long ago, but I remember part of a poem which my father read to me and would like to have a copy of the full verse. It goes something along the lines of "Sea ho Sea you are tickling me, Whilst splashing about on the beach, your waves come out and splash about but my toes you cannot reach." Can anyone help me? I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Christine.
BarneyBarney says: The poem you're thinking of is 'You Can't Catch Me!': Sea! Sea!/You can't catch me!/I'm dancing about on the beach;/Your waves come out,/And splash about,/But my toes you cannot reach!/Sea! Oh sea!/You are tricking me!/You sent a big wave so far/That it wetted my frock -/I did get a shock!/Oh, what a bad fellow you are!

Hallo there. Anyone able to tell me when R series, Adventurous Four series, holiday house, secret Island and Treasure Hunters will be available on Kindle with Amazon.co.uk and not the American site? I know Rockingdown M is available from USA Kindle, but don't wish to connect to them. Thanks Andrew
BarneyBarney says: None of these books are technically in print at the moment as they have just changed publishers. You are going to have to wait until the books are republished before Kindle editions will be available.

I run a French-language blog Le mot juste en anglais that aspires to open a window on the English language and English literature and culture for our French readers. We would like to find someone who could write an article giving a bird's eye view of the significant and lasting place held by Enid Blyton in children's literature. Any suitable candidate is requested to e-mail me. Thank you very much. Jonathan Goldberg, Los Angeles.
