5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful. 20 Mar 2007
By Saturnicus VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This book is the first of the Barney series. It is aimed at the slightly older child but the Famous Five fans should love it. The action centres on a dilapidated mansion. There is the tutor who is not quite what one would expect, lashings of fabulous meals, a monkey, a circus boy who does not quite ring true, a cheeky 12 year old, two older cousins, a lunatic dog, secret passages, mystery and suspense. A musty atmosphere permeates the story and it is an excellent read.

You will not be disappointed with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barney Mystery series, Enid Blyton 30 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 9 year old daughter loved these Barney Mystery stories. She is perhaps starting to outgrow Enid Blyton now, but she really enjoyed all books in this series. I had to persuade her to try them initially, because she didn't find the front covers particularly appealing, as they are a little old fashioned, but she had to admit after reading them that you shouldn't always judge a book by its cover!!! She has since moved on to Enid Blyton's 'Adventure' series which is proving just as good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read 19 Jan 2013
By W.L. Emery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Enid Blyton (AKA Mary Pollock) was a prolific author of children's stories written and published in England around 1930. Colloquiums for the place and time will need to be explained. All that aside, Enid Blyton was an excellent author and I highly recommend her stories for the appropriate age group.

Delighted to have found this book, which was part of my introduction to the world of mystery. Now that I'm a mystery author myself, I appreciate it even more. I loved Enid Blyton.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rockingdown Mystery - Great story! 8 Sep 2009
By Stella Evelyne Tesha - Published on Amazon.com
I am very pleased with the service of Amazon.com and the condition of the product I received.

I have been an Enid blyton collector since 1979. She is a great children novelist and her stories teaches good community values.
My first collection of over 200 Enid Blytons was lost, it was devastating. I started a new collection from 2002 and now I have 46 Enid Blytons. It was very difficult to find The Rockingdown Mystery, it hasn't been published for 3 years.

Amazon does amazing work!
