Barney, Do you know that my show in school was a huge success? I had learnt English usage just because of Enid Blyton. I used her ideas in my role play and my group was awarded full marks. That's the reason I am a fan of Enid Blyton. Barney, could you tell me about some mysteries you were involved in? Can you recommend me the best adventure of your series? I'm new to the Barney series and I want to read a book this Christmas. Could you also tell me the seller? A juicy and meaty bone just for you!
BarneyBarney says: I'm glad your show was a success, Anneysha. I'm not actually in an Enid Blyton series - I'm a real dog! The Barney Mysteries are called that because they feature a circus-boy named Barney. They're marvellous adventure/mystery stories and they're best read in order, starting with The Rockingdown Mystery which is a great book, full of atmosphere. Regarding sellers, you could try bookshops or order from an online seller. Thank you for the bone.

Hi, I am Naphtali Ivan, 16 years old, from Indonesia. I have been a director of SUNU THE MOVIE, which will be launched next year. We made the movie by ourselves, all kids, 13-18 years old. We also did fundraising to fulfill our production costs. Now our community has been acknowledged by the government because we could create many young entrepreneurs. Well, any possibility for us to use the story of Enid Blyton as our idea for our next movie? We plan to kick off by early January 2015. We plan to make this movie using English while all talent/actresses and actors are Indonesian and we will make it to international standard. Any idea how can I get permission? Please guide me to somebody who could help me with permission, legal matters, etc. Hopefully I will have a good response in a couple days. Thanks and regards, Naphtali Ivan #sineasmuda_id +6283873231856.

Hi Barney! Is there any map of Peterswood?
BarneyBarney says: I'm afraid not, Adam. I'm not even sure whether Enid Blyton's description of the village and its buildings is consistent from book to book. However, some aspects of Peterswood are thought to have been influenced by Bourne End in Buckinghamshire, where Enid Blyton lived from 1929-1938.

I need to exhibit my favorite author's work in my school. Barney, could you suggest me the best book I can write about? A meaty and juicy bone for you in return for the favor.
BarneyBarney says: The best book to choose would be one that you like and know well, Anneysha! Then your enthusiasm will come through. If you have several favourites, choose one that has a meaty story (as meaty as the meaty bone!) because then you'll have plenty to say about it. Books which receive a lot of praise from fans include The Valley of Adventure, The Six Bad Boys, The Enchanted Wood, Five Go to Smuggler's Top and The Rubadub Mystery, but the important thing is to choose a title that means something to you. Good luck!
