Biography of Enid Blyton - Author of Children's Books
"The book that made me fall in love with books... "The Enchanted wood" by Enid Blyton I was gripped from the moment my mum began to read it to my brother and I and I'm now enjoying reading it to my own two for the first time. I love watching their faces as they hear about the adventures of all the different characters and I truly hope that it sparks a great love for books in them too" - Elaine Parry
Famous Five - Enid Blyton. We weren't well off and I begged and begged for this set of hard covers when they came out in this edition. I took care of them each time I read them like they were made of gold and to this day, except for a little yellowing, they're like new and I love them still.
