Hello! I just had a thought - where did Enid's parents get the name 'Enid' from? Thanks, from Nadia.
BarneyBarney says: I don't know why they decided on that name, but it was more popular in days gone by than it is now.

I love reading your stories, especially the Famous Five and the Mystery series. Is it hard writing all of those books?
BarneyBarney says: Enid Blyton died in 1968 but the best of her lives on in her books, which continue to enthrall children worldwide. She found that stories flowed readily out of her mind, almost faster than she could type, and she was capable of writing a Famous Five book in about five days.

Hello, meeting you all after a long time. I just finished reading 'Thirteen O' Clock'. What is a daffodil clock?
BarneyBarney says: I think you mean a dandelion clock, Rupsa! As explained in the story, the dandelion forms a head of fluffy white seeds. It's customary to pick a dandelion and blow hard at it until all the seeds are gone. You count how many puffs it takes, and that's supposed to tell you what "o'clock" it is - e.g. if it takes five puffs before all the seeds are gone, it's five o' clock!

I don't know if Enid Blyton knew this when writing the Secret Seven but the name Pamela is a literary name - like Vanessa and Jessica and Arline, it was invented for a book or poem or play or opera.

Hi Barney, are the Enid Blyton Society and '' website in any way related?
BarneyBarney says: They're separate but we tend to think of as our "sister site". was set up by Keith Robinson, who is also the webmaster for this website.
