Helen was intrigued about our constant references to the various series created by Enid Blyton and decided to set herself the task of reading one a month to see what all the fuss is about!
Can't wait to read each review as they come!
About the Author
Enid had two children with Hugh, and soon after wrote her first novel, The Adventures of the Wishing-Chair. Enid divorced Hugh after almost 20 years of marriage, and married Kenneth Waters in 1943. Throughout the 40s and 50s, Enid wrote books at a colossal pace: adventure stories, mysteries, magical stories, farming stories, stories for younger children, best-selling series like The Famous Five and Noddy. Enid fell ill with Alzheimer's disease and she died in 1963.
Her spirit lives on in her books and she is remembered as one of the most-loved and celebrated children's authors.
So here is the list. It’s 12 so I can read one a month and hopefully, borrow or find them in charity
