Hi Barney, I have been sorting out my cupboards and sorting out all my Enid Blyton books. Some are doubles and date back to the 1950s. Is there anyone out there who would be interested in buying? Most are the Mystery books with Fatty, Pip, Larry, Daisy, Bets, Buster, Mr Goon, etc. Email: suep19@sky.com
BarneyBarney says: I've included your email address so people can contact you if they wish, Sue, but messages on this board quickly move down as new ones are posted, and I think you might get more response if you posted in the "For Sale" section of our discussion forums.

Barney, I recently had my birthday and Mrs Snehalatha gave me seven books!! What could be better?!
BarneyBarney says: Em... eight books? ;-) Only joking - that sounds like a super birthday present and I'm sure you'll have hours and hours of enjoyment reading them!

Some of the Bowdleriser's choices are bizarre. There's no need to hide the fact that the kids in the books use different currency to ours, for example. And I was most annoyed to discover on re-reading Malory Towers that Zerelda had lost her Victory Rolls and now just had some vague "elaborate hairstyle".
BarneyBarney says: That is annoying about Zerelda's hair. There are lots of such alterations. Apparently, in The Enchanted Wood Bessie (whose name has been changed to Beth) now has pizza at her birthday party in the Land of Birthdays.

Hi - did Enid visit Australia during her life? I'm guessing she didn't but just wondering because that's where I'm from.
BarneyBarney says: No, Enid Blyton never went to Australia.

Does anyone know if Enid Blyton wrote a short, illustrated story about a mean cake shop owner who is horrible to the young animal characters who gaze longingly at his cakes through the shop window? One night he has a nightmare in which the cakes have all come to life and tell him off. After this he, of course, gives the "children" cakes. It has beautiful illustrations!
