yup enid blyton defines childhood!
i used to love tinkle and enid blyton and yes even i didnt know she was a woman for quite a long time! and i used to think her name is Gid Blyton or sumthing coz of the way her signature used to be on d cover!lol
but yeah i used to love them! but for some reason i never liked famous 5 or secret 7 much maybe coz by the time i found out abt them i was already like 12. :P

She was indeed a great writer. Her books were so engrossing that my mother used to hide my story books coz you know I wont study just read her books. My fav were the naughtiest girl books. Loved them.

Even our childhood was full of her books.. and its hard to say which was was our fav!..
Malory tower,famous five ,secret seven.
Damn we were so crazy about secret seven!. the adventurous were so well described that most of time we could imagine ourselves there.LOL

Sure there are many new writers and our taste might have changed but there was none like Enid Bylton and we seriously doubt there ever will be.

we still sometimes catch up with Enid Blyton books when free or totally in a readers block or if we simply wish to, we are still in high school so don't worry we aren't crazy LOL

P.S: we also used to think that the writer was a man  ROFL

Enid Blyton indeed was one of the best children's Author.
Malory Towers was the first book in my hand of which i have fond memories. I have long outgrown these books but the feelings i had while reading Malory towers and the secret seven is very much alive.

Well said!
I belive every bookworm has started his/her readin journey with Enid Blyton, followed by JK Rowling, followed by Stephanie Meyers, and then Sydney Sheldon and then diverted into their favorite genres!

I agree wholeheartedly. One of the first novels for kids MUST be Enid Blyton. She was God's gift to children's books. Famous Five, Secret Seven, Galliano's Circus, St. Clare, Malory Towers - wow!! they were real good reads!!

I used to be a great fan of her books. Great post, really nostalgic Smile
