For a far more detailed analysis, visit the Society's immense Cave of Books.

Note: Enid is credited with over 10,900 short stories, poems and plays throughout her career, but some were used many times so the actual number is more like 7500. Check out this comprehensive, detailed listing.

Messages from Enid Blyton fans...

June 28, 2015 - Neo says: Hi there, what title is the best among all the best book writen by Enid Blyton ever?
Bets says... Bets says: That is a very subjective question, Neo! I think many people will have different opinions about this. My personal favourite is The Island of Adventure, or perhaps The Sea of Adventure. Why don't you ask this question in the Talk About Blyton section? I'm sure this will spark an interesting dicussion.
June 27, 2015 - Kavee says: Is there a Enid Blyton book called Blackberry Magic and other stories? I have read a translation of the book a long time ago and would like to read the original book.
Buster says... Buster says: If you go to the Enid Blyton Society website, Kavee and have a look in their Cave of Books and put in the title you are looking for, you will see the book you are speaking of.
June 26, 2015 - zahani rifkhan says: Enid Blyton's books are simply superb.They give the reader a complete insight of the books. The stories actually sound good and make sense too!!
Fatty says... Fatty says: Glad you enjoy and approve of them! You might like to tell us your favourite books or series.
June 22, 2015 - martin says: So I have just bought a load of books for my step grand duaghter and started reading them. It's been over 40-years : -) In the Famous Five, I noticed it's all 'idiot. Idiot. Idiot'. No 'silly'. 'stupid', 'crazy', etc. Has this been re-written this way or has it always been like that? I have read the Secret Seven, Five Find Outers and now Secret island and it's not like that at all. Just curious.
Buster says... Buster says: You don't say what year of book you are talking about Martin. Some books such as the Famous Five and The Find-Outers have been updated, and so the text will be different from the original text. But you can still buy the original text in second hand books.
June 22, 2015 - Pete says: That last post reminds me of the well known lines in a certain Beatles song: "Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil,but everyone knew her as Nancy."
June 21, 2015 - Kathy says: Hi. My name is Lily, but my username is Kathy. I want to change my username, so would it be possible to change all my messages to 'Lily'? .
Buster says... Buster says: Just post from now on as Lily, we cannot change old messages.
June 21, 2015 - Kathy says: How do you start a topic? I mean, I've tried, but the messages just end up on other topics and you can't create a topic without writing a message.
Buster says... Buster says: If the topic you want to start already has one, then you have to post in the already topic, Katy.
June 20, 2015 - Evie M says: Hi just in case you people were wondering, I haven't gone off EB or anything. Still like the books I don't know why I haven't been on here for ages but I do still look at the message board and stuff occasionally : ).
Buster says... Buster says: Pleased to hear that, Evie.
June 15, 2015 - zara says: Hello! My name is Zara. In which year was Third Year At Malory Towers published? .
Buster says... Buster says: It was first published in 1948. If you look at this series of books on this site you will see the year each of them was first published.
June 14, 2015 - Dan says: Hi I am Dan short for Dania just like George. Your character George is just like me. You won't believe me if l tell you that I am a 15 year old girl, owning an island. I have got 3 cousins John ,Dink and Anna and a dog Henry. We have many adventures together. I love your books.
June 11, 2015 - Paul says: Mary and Jill from TA4 are names obviously drawn from Enid's own life given Mary was her middle name and Gillian/Jill was her daughter.
Buster says... Buster says: Not obviously as they were very popular names!
May 26, 2015 - Kathy says: I am Kathy. Does the naughtiest girl marry Julian Holland? If so, can anyone tell me? .
Buster says... Buster says: If she does, Kathy, then it must be in a fan-fic!
May 24, 2015 - Nithya says: Thank you Buster. I read the stories and they are really wonderful. My face was a picture when I heard that Fatty married Bets!! Nithya.
May 24, 2015 - Nithya says: I'm Nithya and I just forgot to mention one thing from my previous message. Who wrote this 'Find Outers in Retirement' and where can I read it? And are these characters and places mentioned in Enid Blyton's books real or fictional? Thanks for the response, Darling Buster.
Buster says... Buster says: Nithya you will find the Find-Outers in Retirement in the Fan Fiction section of this site. Just look to the top of the page and press the link. There are 16 stories in total all written by Julie Heginbotham and each short story follows on from the last. All Enid's characters were fictional.
May 22, 2015 - Nithya says: Hello, I am Nithya, and I began reading books at a very early age. I simply love the Five Find-Outers. I really appreciate Fatty's detective tricks and Bet's quick thinking. When I read these books on my Kindle, I get lost in the mystery world. I wish these characters were alive. And these books have given me a few detective tricks, like 'how to get out of a locked room' and 'invisible writing' and so on. And of course, can't miss out Buster!! I just love him. The other characters are nice too.
Buster says... Buster says: Nice to hear that you enjoy reading these books, Nithya.
