Links to Enid Blyton websites
The Enid Blyton Society was formed early in 1995, it being the official society for the author. As well as a Society Journal (issued three or four times a year) containing in-depth articles about all things Blyton, the website is a veritable feast of facts, reviews, book covers and a first class bibliography of all Blyton's major works and series. The Cave of Books alone is worth a visit. Also many of the short story collections are featured. The site is updated frequently. On top of this are the Forums – plenty of fun to be had here! There is also the annual Society Day, held in May, which attracts in excess of a hundred members each year.
The World of Blyton Blog is dedicated to all those out there who enjoy books by Enid Blyton. It was inspired by the Enid Blyton Society members and formed in November 2012. World of Blyton is currently being run by two Enid Blyton enthusiasts, PippaStef and Fiona. We hope to bring you good quality articles on Enid Blyton and the impressive library she created. The World of Blyton blog will include plot synopsis, book reviews, and articles exploring the worlds that Enid Blyton created with such vivid detail and care.
Carey Blyton was a composer, writer and nonsense poet (and nephew of Enid). Perhaps best known as the creator of the accidental children's hit Bananas in Pyjamas, Carey was also an accomplished musician and a man of many talents – not to mention an all-pervading sense of humour. Explore this site to find out all about Carey's multifaceted life and work.
Michael Edwards has a very detailed page arranged by topic, series, and year of publication, in that order of precedence. There's a staggering amount to read here. Although it hasn't been updated for years, it is still worth a look-in.
Mistério Juvenil is a very nice fansite based in Portugal. Wish I could read it! But the book covers alone are worth looking at. Some of the links on the left have English translations when you run your mouse over; for instance, check out the Cinco Descobridores e o seu Cão (Five Find-Outers and Dog). Most browser toolbars now have translators, so give that a go.
