Some of my favourite Enid Blyton Characters;

Moonface (The Magic Faraway Tree Series) – His cute little round house, the slippery slip and his brave and to the point demeanour make him the perfect character.

Julian (The Famous Five Series) – I am aways partial to characters that are leaders.  Julian is the oldest of the group and is responsible and intelligent.

Janet (The Secret Seven Series) – She is second-in-command and a lot more headstrong than the other girls in the group.  While the other girls sometimes get quiet silly she is brave and quite sensible.

Susie – (The Secret Seven Series) – A younger sister of Jack who is in the Secret Seven.  Susie wants to be in the group but is always refused.  It is entertaining to read about all of the antics she creates  to annoy the Secret Seven.

Chinky (The Wishing Chair Series) – A kind hearted cheeky pixie who brings his magical world to the playroom of Mollie and Peter.

The Enid Blyton Collection

DSC_0276This is my largest collection and the one I am most proud of.  I have loved Enid Blyton’s stories since my grade four teacher read The Magic Faraway Tree to the whole class.  She had such an amazing range of story ideas.  My favourite had to be the Famous Five Mystery series – I have many that are earlier copies (the red covers).  The idea of teenage siblings/cousins solving mysteries together with minimal parental supervision made for very interesting reading.

DSC_0278I also loved The Secret Seven stories, The Magic Faraway Tree Stories, The Wishing Chair and her short story compilations particularly those about Toy Land.

DSC_0283DSC_0280I am not even close to having her entire collection, she wrote over 800 books, but one day I hope to have them all.DSC_0277
