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.
