Everything else

To make finding posts (and especially other posts within a series) easier I’ve listed them all here with links (and I’ll add new posts as they are published). First are the series of posts, then one-off posts by category.

If you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for you can browse what each of our writers have written from their links on the About page, or use the category cloud on the right side to pick a topic. You can also use the search box to see all articles featuring “The Famous Five” etc.

There are separate pages for fanfictionbook reviews, character posts, Blyton’s poems, recipes, updates to Blyton’s books and TV series posts

    Could you let me know if you have any contact information regarding Sophie Smallwood as I have family photos to pass on


    • fiona says:

      Sorry Veronica, I don’t have any contact details for Sophie Smallwood. You could try asking Tony Summerfield of the Enid Blyton Society.


  2. I couldn’t find a contact form, so I’ll try posting my question here:
    Which book has the following plot element: George is kidnapped and forced to write a note to her friends. She signs with “Georgina”, which tells the boys that something is amiss, so they don’t fall into the trap.


  3. hannah975 says:

    Thanks for this great website (on which I’ve already spent much too much time^^)

    The three links to the pages with fanfiction, book reviews and character posts seem to be broken. They only work when you remove the -index in them.


  4. Janine says:

    Hello, I have a few Noddy books. Do you where I can donate them to?


    • Fiona says:

      I don’t know where you are in the world but where I am charity shops usually take books. Those, or a charity redistributing goods to families in need of help.


  5. Anne Doery says:

    When my brother and I were small, we lived in a flat at Emperor’s Gate, London. Each night our parents would play the Noddy records with Enid Blyton herself narrating and the occasional ringing of Noddy’s bell. I have been trying to find a digital version so I can play it at my brother’s 70th birthday party as a surprise. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have only found vinyls and we no longer have a record player. Thank you so much if you can help.


    • Fiona says:

      No, sorry, I haven’t come across any digital recordings. I know there are places you can go to get a CVR or cassette tape digitised, these sort of places might also do records if you bought one.


  6. Trent says:

    Hi, are you able to tell me if there are any Enid Blyton booked illustrated by Georgina Hargreaves, other than the Faraway Tree and Wishing Chair series?

    Thanks, Trent
