Enid Blyton

From Noddy to the Famous Five and The Magic Faraway Tree to "Malory Towers", Enid Blyton has created some of the most popular and enduring characters in children's literature.

Born in 1897, Enid Blyton has consistently been one of the biggest-selling authors since the 1930s. Claiming to have never planned anything when writing and that she just let her 'imagination run wild', her stories tended to fall into one of three categories - Adventure, Boarding School or Magical Fantasy. She died in 1968 in Hampstead and was played by Helena Bonham Carter in a 2009 film about her life.
