Enid Blyton still rocks

An exciting day indeed for Chicken and Frog, as we welcome our first guest blogger. Ok, it’s H and I asked her, but it’s better than reading my ramblings.


I love Enid Blyton books because there’s something in there for everyone whether you like a mystery, a straightforward tale or a story about trouble and tricks, these books are for you. A mixture of emotions are in many of the books, from Famous Five to Malory Towers. Her books capture everything!
Enid has written many books about girls’ boarding schools and all of the mischief they get up to. I particularly enjoy the Malory Towers series and have read them over and over again. There are marvellous midnight feasts, troublesome tricks and very courageous characters who save others. When you pick up one of these books, you don’t want to put it down, that is the great thing about Enid Blyton.
As well as school stories, she has also written adventure stories such as Famous Five and the Secret Seven. All of these are about children (no interfering adults!) solving crimes and sorting out problems. She has written a wonderful range of books as you can see. Why not read one?
