Enid Blyton (British 1897-1968) Original Artwork
Blyton often wrote books in series, basing them on recurring characters and designing each series specifically for different age groups. One of her most widely known characters is Noddy, intended for beginning readers. Her seminal works, however, are her young readers' novels. In these books young characters routinely ride out their own adventures with minimal adult help. Particularly popular in this genre were her series The Famous Five (1942-1963, 21 novels following four children and their dog), The Five Find-Outers and Dog (1943-1961, 15 novels in which five children regularly outwit the local police), and The Secret Seven (1949-1963, 15 novels about a society of seven children who solve various mysteries). Her work most consistently involves adventure stories, sometimes including fantasy and magic.
