Friends, anyone from India please kindly suggest where can I get old or used editions of Enid's books. I have exhausted all used book shops near my place and it has been about a year since I laid my eyes on a Blyton book.
BarneyBarney says: If you can't find second-hand Enid Blyton books locally, why not try online sites like eBay or Amazon or equivalent?

Found the Faraway Tree and it brought me back to my childhood days. I imagine what it looks like on the big screen...it was fantastic! Thank you for this webpage. Glad that there is something to remember Enid Blyton by.
BarneyBarney says: I've been looking for the Faraway Tree all my life!

Did any of Enid Blyton's books win awards? If so, which ones?
BarneyBarney says: The only literary award Enid Blyton ever received was in America, for Mystery Island (The Island of Adventure retitled). It was awarded a prize by the Boys' Club of America for being one of the six most popular books of 1947.

Nice to see this site. Didn't know it existed. I'm a 45 year old who has grown up on Enid Blyton's books. Last vacation, I'd gone home to visit my parents and got out my book collection, of which around 200 of them were Enid Blyton's. I re-read The Secret Island and was transported back to my childhood, when, unlike now, we as children would be in the frame of mind as Enid Blyton would put it, "Oh tomorrow, do come quickly!" She was a genius.

I didn't know anything about Enid Blyton books until one day my grandson received one in the mail from the Create organazion for children who are in care. Anyway he loves them, and is intending to do a 3 minute public speaking speech about the Marshmallows Land from the Faraway Tree book. Good job everyone.
BarneyBarney says: I'm glad your grandson is enjoying the books, Darlene. Good luck to him with his speech!
