Monday #436


I’m at the end of a week off work now, and we packed a lot in. Now it’s back to normal, or a at least normal for the school holidays during a pandemic. Scotland, as of today, has moved from level 0 to “beyond level 0” which means a bit more freedom for us all.

The 11th of August is Blyton’s birthday so that’s this Wednesday, you can see below what I’ll be posting that day. The first round was a bit of a draw, so let’s see who wins this time.

English Heritage vs Enid Blyton: the rematch

and

Cunningham and Petrov: The Mystery of the Missing Children chapter 18

“Ahoy there! AHOY!”

Granpa had a colossally loud voice when he wanted to make people hear. The fisherman in the far-off boat heard him at once.

“WE’VE GOT YOUR DOG!” Yelled Granpa. “WE ARE TAKING HIM ASHORE. YOU FINISH YOUR NAP. HA HA.

This is from Wake up, Granpa! which I found in Enid Blyton’s Magazine, volume 5 issue 16. It doesn’t appear to have been reprinted anywhere else.

In short, from the beach, Andy spots a dog in trouble in the sea, and wakes up his Granpa who is sleeping in his deckchair. They row out to rescue the dog – whose troubles have gone unnoticed as his owner is asleep in his own boat. Later Andy is known as The Boy Who Rescued The Dog which would also be a good title for the story!
