Do any of Enid Blyton's stories include a character named Pillywiggin?
BarneyBarney says: I don't remember coming across a character of that name, though maybe someone else will.

BARNEY! My second grade best friend! Happy New Year! I hope 2019 brings you loads and loads of happiness, bones, and really great experiences. This was my favorite place to hang out as a kid. Sorry for always eating your ears out (the irony) with my usual gabble when I was younger! Thank you for dealing with it - it must've been hard haha. I've been sooo busy with school that I *almost* forgot to log in for my yearly wishes - can't wait to be done with exams and get back to reading. Any suggestions? I think I've finished almost all of the Enid Blyton series over the years. Thank you!! Love you, love this website, love Enid. Cheers, your favorite person ever, Ana.
BarneyBarney says: A happy "wuff" of greeting to you, Ana. It's always lovely to hear from an old friend (or a young one!) Good luck with your exams! The Six Bad Boys is a particularly interesting book to read or re-read, I think, as it reveals so much about the society of the time. Wishing you (and all visitors to the website) a wonderful 2019 with plenty of long walks and crunchy biscuits!

May I wish you and your master a very happy and prosperous new year Barney!
BarneyBarney says: Thank you, Pete. A Wuffy New Year and a jolly wag of the tail to you! Wishing you and all Blyton fans lots of fun in 2019!

How often does Enid make reference to popular culture? Not politicians/royalty like Winston Churchill and George VI.
BarneyBarney says: There are references to chewing gum and juke box music in The Rubadub Mystery, and characters like the Secret Seven and St. Clare's girls go to see films at the cinema. Films are mentioned in The Mystery of the Pantomime Cat too, though not all of them are real film titles. Television features in Five on Kirrin Island Again and The Mystery That Never Was. This is by no means an exhaustive list!

I wondered about that as well, David [story query, December 21]. I read that story as a young boy and I loved it!
