Friday, 14th February, 2014
Starting in 1930 I am going to add all the Weekly Letters from Enid Blyton and Bobs from Teachers World. I will be adding new letters each Wednesday to coincide with the actual date. Although the quality is not great I am also adding any photos that are directly relevant to Enid Blyton or Old Thatch.

I have added Enid Blyton's Seasonal Notes for February, from Teachers World in 1929. I also thought I would point out the February poem from 1923. These have been on the website for quite a while, with some super illustrations by Phyllis Chase, but I felt that I should bring them to the attention of those who may not have realised that they were there.

Wednesday, 18th September, 2013
I have added two new reviews to the Cave of Books. Bed-time Stories by Terry Gustafson and The Enchanted Village by Julie Heginbotham. This story was originally written for The Children's Jolly Book which was published by Odham's and it was later used in the small booklet for 'Bekonscot Model Village'.
Friday, 6th September, 2013
I have added the booklet Play-Time to the Cave of Books. This is a new Birn Brothers discovery which featured on the back cover of Journal 50. As this is the first book to turn up from a series of nine which are listed in Enid Blyton's workbook, I have for the moment added it to the Picture and Verse books section, but hopefully other books will turn up from the same series in the future and I will be able to place it in its correct series.
Sunday, 1st September, 2013
I have added Enid Blyton's Seasonal Notes for September, from Teachers World in 1929. I am sorry this isn't as clear as the others, but it wasn't a very good photocopy. I have also added a review of Naughty Amelia Jane! by Terry Gustafson. Terry has now written 130 reviews for the Cave of Books, but in the last few years he has been the only contributor and it would be great if others felt the writing itch and scratched it!
Thursday, 1st August, 2013
I have added Enid Blyton's Seasonal Notes for August, from Teachers World in 1929.
Sunday, 2nd June, 2013
I have added Enid Blyton's Seasonal Notes for June, from Teachers World in 1929. As I was away I'm afraid I have rather missed the bus on May, but if you look back to May 3rd the notes are there.
Monday, 1st April, 2013
At the start of a new month, from Teachers World in 1929 we have Enid Blyton's Seasonal Notes for April.
Friday, 1st March, 2013
As we enter a new month I have added an additional feature to our regular 'Monthly Enid Blyton Page'. This will take you into the Periodical section of the Cave, and from Teachers World in 1929 we have Enid Blyton's Seasonal Notes for March. I will be adding other links at the start of future months.
Monday, 25th February, 2013
Over this last weekend I have given a facelift to some of the early Newnes books, The Enchanted Wood, Mr. Galliano's Circus, Adventures of the Wishing-Chair and The Adventurous Four. This is a chance to see some decent images of some very scarce books. If time and energy allow I will try to redo some other early editions.
Thursday, 21st February, 2013
Today I have added new reviews by Terry Gustafson of three of the Old Thatch Readers, The Talking Teapot and Other Stories, Round the Year Stories and Children of Other Days. I have also added more records and cassettes to the Audio Section.
