Biography of Enid Blyton - Author of Children's Books

"The book that made me fall in love with books... "The Enchanted wood" by Enid Blyton I was gripped from the moment my mum began to read it to my brother and I and I'm now enjoying reading it to my own two for the first time. I love watching their faces as they hear about the adventures of all the different characters and I truly hope that it sparks a great love for books in them too" - Elaine Parry

I devoured the Famous Five and Secret Seven series when I was a kid. As with Swallows and Amazons, it was the idea of kids going off on their own and having these great adventures all on their own. With the FF in BOATS. I like boats.
