I enjoyed the second book in the Barney Mysteries series a lot. More than the first, even though that one was also good. It's a fine adventure, but what made it special for me is that Enid Blyton is at her humorous best. When it comes to humor Snubby is the star, of course, along with his wonderful and lunatic dog Loony. Snubby is my favorite character in the series, always irrepressible, cheeky and entertaining. When you put him together with the stuffy and proper Great-uncle Robert, you have c ...more

Domestic violence, giving cigarettes as prizes to children, foul language. Books for children? 😁

Oh yes, Project Nostalgia makes an Enid Blyton stopover. A long one. Many ratings to come, of books you've never heard of and don't want to read. Nostalgic? Yes. Cheesy? Terribly. Good? Oh no.

This is one of the better Enid Blytons, I think, because it fully embraces the ridiculousness of her characters. Snubby and Loony! Great Uncle! The circus! Old Ma! Young 'Un (can't have a Blyton book without some preachiness)! And don't forget the chimps.

Haha, oh Enid, you're getting too easy! It was so early on that I guessed the thief this time it wasn't funny. Loved the food descriptions again. Loved the mystery, and loved my beautiful copy, older and with it's dust jacket. Great series too, another five star book
