145. Enid Blyton: A Biography by Barbara Stoney
Enid Blyton is arguably the most prolific children's writer of all time. During a career that spanned four decades, she wrote poetry, plays, books and magazine articles. In the 1950s she was churning out over 20 books per year. This biography helps the reader discover the woman behind the work, who was hard-working and dedicated to her audience on one hand but immature emotionally and temperamental on the other.
