My favourite book as a child. I lost count of the times I read this one. A great mystery with some nice twists. Lovable characters.
Chtěla jsem změnu a hlavně přečíst i knížky, ke kterým jsem se v dětství nedostala, ale na poličkách stále čekají. Tato kniha, ač je určena mladším čtenářům umí vtáhnout do děje lehkou dějovou linkou, ve které se objeví i napětí a nebezpečí. Je to něco jiného, než ten dospělý stereotyp - tady je vše rychle vyřešeno bez jakýchkoli průtahů. Takže jako oddychové čtení to není pro dospělé čtenáře vůbec špatné a mladší to musí posoudit sami, ale věřím, že se jim to bude líbit a sáhnou po dalších díle ...more

My copy is a hardcover copy published by Collins. It has a different cover. This is a good old-fashioned type mystery for young people. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I guess this is the first book in a series called Barney Mysteries. Each title has an R word in the title. Barney is a young teenaged boy who is homeless and searching for his father. He previously worked in a circus and has a tiny monkey named Miranda. While staying in a deserted old mansion in the country he meets brother and sister Ro

The first in the Barney series, and a good book at that! I've always liked Barney; he is the perfect Enid Blyton character. He is smart, kindhearted, a little rough around the edges but cheerful and a good friend. He reminds me of a circus born Julian (from the Famous Five) except his delightful monkey Miranda always steals the show. Joining him in this series are the tricky Snubby, unwanted by most of his relatives, the untidy, rather mean at times Diana, and Roger, a kind of fill in big brothe ...more

Roger and Diana are not exactly thrilled to discover that they are to spend the holidays with their mother's old governess, and that their cousin Snubby will also be staying with them. Especially since they are all to have a tutor. But then they meet Barney and his monkey Miranda, and explore the nearby Rockingdown House, which has long been deserted. Since Barney is basically homeless, he decides to sleep in the old nursery, but then he hears strange noises at night — noises that leave no trace ...more

Enid Blytonová mi opět dokázala, že dokáže uchvátit srdce všech čtenářů, i ta, která již z dětskosti vyrostla (alespoň částečně). Autorce bych chtěl poděkovat za další skvělou četbu, jež mi ukrátila dlouhé večery. Nejedná se o nic výjimečného, ale zároveň nic ledabylého, za mne jasné 4 hvězdy! :)

Born in South London, Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 192
