Hi everyone, I am looking for the original title of the book about a chair that will take Mollie and Peter everywhere they want to go. I only know it in German, since I am from Switzerland. I so loved these books when I was a girl and would love to read them in English now. Can you help me? Thanks. :-)
BarneyBarney says: The Wishing-Chair books about Mollie, Peter and Chinky the pixie are wonderful fantasy stories. Enid Blyton brought out two Wishing-Chair books in her lifetime - Adventures of the Wishing-Chair and The Wishing-Chair Again. In recent years, a third book has been released called More Wishing-Chair Stories. It's a collection of discarded chapters and Wishing-Chair tales taken from anthologies, etc.

Is there a copyright on images in any of the Enid Blyton books? I paper cut and was looking at doing a few to sell if I can.
BarneyBarney says: That sounds interesting, Andrea. I'm not sure what the copyright laws are regarding images so you'd need to check with Hodder Children's Books (part of Hachette), who own the Enid Blyton copyright. The copyright to Noddy is held separately, by DreamWorks Animation. Check their websites for contact details.

Hey Barney, Have you heard of the Faraway Tree movie coming up and the new Noddy, Toyland Detective TV series? Thanks, Jay.
BarneyBarney says: I've heard that they're being made, but time will tell whether they're any good!

Hi, we have been looking for a copy of the book The Folk of the Faraway Tree, in particular the large hardcover book with the 1983 cover (illustrations by Georgina Hargreaves). We had this many years ago with our older children, and are looking to obtain a copy for our younger children. If anyone could help, that would be awesome! We live in Canada.

Does anyone have the text of a poem by Enid's nephew Carey Blyton, which starts: "I know you're down there plug-hole man, in the dark so utter"?
BarneyBarney says: I don't know that poem, but it sounds good! I hope someone will be able to help.
