Order of Barney Mysteries Books
The Barney Mysteries is a series of children’s mystery novels by British author Enid Blyton. Although the title character is Barney, the series starts out following brother and sister Roger and Diana, as well as their cousin Snubby and his dog Loony. They soon meet Barney, who is older than the other kids and works at fairs and circuses. He also has a spoiled monkey named Miranda, who Loony doesn’t like. Barney is on a mission to find his missing father, who his mother told him about before she died.
Enid Blyton began her Barney Mysteries series in 1949 with the book The Rockingdown Mystery. The series ended after six books, concluding with 1959’s The Ragamuffin Mystery. The series is also known as the ‘R’ Mysteries, as each book’s title in the series begins with an ‘R’ (excluding ‘the’).
