Hello there, I'm trying to recall a book from my childhood, I'm 99% sure it's an Enid Blyton. It's got a yellow cover with Enid's name on the top in red writing. I know it's not a Noddy book or the Famous Five. From what I remember it's about a magical thread. The main character/villain is all in black.
BarneyBarney says: There's a short story called The Magic Silver Thread, James, but I'm not at all sure that that's what you're looking for.

Hi Barney. The old Famous Five Club used to support a children's home in Beaconsfield and I was wondering if it is still there. If so, I would like to help raise money for it as the Famous Five Club did by asking members of the new Famous Five Club on the forums if they would like to help too. Anyone can join the club and the Secret Seven Club as well. Go to the forums and click on the 'Miscellaneous Blyton' section and you will find the clubs there. Do join us.
BarneyBarney says: I'm afraid the children's home in Beaconsfield no longer exists, Sue.

Hi, just found a book in Waterstones called All Aboard by Enid Blyton. It's four stories in one book - The Saucy Jane Family, The Pole Star Family, The Seaside Family and The Queen Elizabeth Family. Hope it's going to be a good read as I had not heard of these stories. The pictures on the cover are awful though, like cartoons.
BarneyBarney says: Those short books are quite interesting, Sue. They're about a family who go on trips to different places. The original series had two more titles - The Caravan Family and The Buttercup Farm Family.

Hi. I love Enid Blyton's books and I want to know more about her. I just know her age and lifetime, not about her books. Please write me back. ;)
BarneyBarney says: Click on our 'Author of Adventure' and 'Cave of Books' buttons (over on the left), Lasitaja, and you'll find a lot of information about Enid Blyton and her work. Have fun!

I love Enid Blyton's books like The Magic Faraway Tree and The Enchanted Wood. I'm only ten and I notice the pure English literature.
BarneyBarney says: They are indeed magical books, Stella.
