Is there possibly a Five Find-Outers and Dog mysteries show because I don't think there is? Is there a reason why the mysteries collection (Five Find-Outers) only has 15 books and the Famous Five has lots more?
BarneyBarney says: There was a Japanese Five Find-Outers TV show back in the 1960s-70s, but the tapes were wiped. In answer to your second question, I can only guess that Enid Blyton had more ideas for Famous Five stories - or that more readers asked for them!

I am keen to obtain the Famous Five Kirrin Island Treasure Quest board game. Does anyone have one that they would be prepared to sell?
BarneyBarney says: Your request might get more views if you put it in the "Wanted" section of our forums, Christopher.

There appears to be no mention of a book I have had all my life, is it political correctness that I cannot find it under its published title? Yes, it's written by Enid Blyton. It's a wonderful story. What's it called? All Aboard for Adventure.
BarneyBarney says: An interesting title. Was the book published during Enid Blyton's lifetime? Many stories have been re-released in different formats since she died, and sometimes with different titles. Not all of these are currently in our Cave of Books.

In answer to Tracey (August 23rd) the poem about the policeman and the Queen of Fairyland is 'The Kind Policeman'. It has seven verses and it begins: "I watched a tall blue policeman stand/In Oxford Street and wave his hand,/And all the buses stopped and stood/Behind his back, quite still and good."
BarneyBarney says: Thank you, Anita. 'The Kind Policeman' can be found in these books. Regarding The Enid Blyton Book of Fairies, it's possible that the poem is only in the 1924 edition. It's certainly not in the editions from 1967 onwards.

Hello Barney, I was just wondering if you could give me an update on the status of the copyright for The Magic Faraway Tree? Is it in the public domain?
BarneyBarney says: Copyright lasts until 70 years after an author's death, Samantha, so Enid Blyton's books will remain under copyright until the end of 2038.
