How have you allowed some of the disgusting books in the new series to be printed? Five Give Up the Booze etc. must make Enid Blyton turn in her grave. Is there no limit to money grabbing?
BarneyBarney says: The Enid Blyton Society had nothing to do with Bruno Vincent's books, Robert. You can see what our forum members think of them here.

Dear Enid Blyton Society, My cousins and I performed a play called 'The Currant Bun'. It was inside one of the annuals, I think approximately 1965 to 1970. Please could I have a copy of this play? I would like to send it to my cousin Joy, who performed the role of Fatty. We all had such a delightful time. Thank you for your help in this matter. Yours, Pippa Thomas.
BarneyBarney says: I'm unable to make a copy of the play but I can tell you the title of the book it was in - Enid Blyton's Book of the Year. It's a very entertaining play to perform or watch.

I'm kind of peeved that Zerelda has lost her Victory Rolls in modern reprints. She now has a vague and unspecified elaborate hairstyle, probably in an attempt to make Malory Towers less "1940s".
BarneyBarney says: It is a shame when little details like that are lost.

I'm re-reading Malory Towers for a bit of light reading, and I'm on the third book. Lossie Laxton has just been mentioned and I was wondering if she was real - or perhaps based on a real person? For example, I know Darrell Rivers was based on Enid's second husband. Thanks for reading this, it was 'wunnerful' of you! ~ Sorry, I couldn't help myself :p
BarneyBarney says: Enid Blyton probably based Lossie Laxton on the film stars of the day but not necessarily on any particular one - though Deanna Durbin also had an alliterative name and sometimes wore her hair in rolls.

Hi, I am looking for a poem about a tall blue policeman who stood in Oxford Street and stopped the traffic for the fairy queen to go by. My gran read it in a book when she was a child in the Second World War but has never found it since. Hope you can help.
BarneyBarney says: The poem your gran remembers is 'The Kind Policeman', Tracey. You can see the poem and publication details here.
