Enid Blyton was a childrens writer, known as both Enid Blyton and Mary Pollock. She was one of the most successful children's storytellers of the twentieth century. Her books have been among the world's bestsellers for children since the 1930s, selling more than 600 million copies. Blyton's books, which cover a broad range of genres from fantasy and mystery stories to nature books, are still enormously popular across the globe, and have been translated into almost 90 languages. She is estimated to have written about 800 books over 40 years, but is best known for her Noddy, The Famous Five and the Secret Seven Series.
Following the high sales of Blyton's early novels such as Adventures of the Wishing Chair (1937) and The Enchanted Wood (1939), she became a phenomenal success in the 1940s and 1950s and skilfully built a literary empire, often producing as many as 40 books a year.

Now she' causing chaos with a boomerang, scribbling all over the nursery walls and playing all sorts of tricks on Mr Up-and-To! Sometimes the toys manage to trick her back, and she promises to be good from now on.
