Who were my childhood heroes?

By Sarah Oliver

I have always loved reading – I used to sit in the corner of the playground reading Enid Blyton books when I was six. I loved escaping into her stories. I was a huge fan of the Secret Seven books in particular. I had four shelves crammed with her books at home, I would collect them from car boot sales and from book shops whenever I went on holiday. I wanted to have a copy of every book she wrote but never managed it… which isn’t surprising considering how many she wrote!

According to the Enid Blyton website she was the author of:

  • 186 novels/novelettes
  • 258 character books
  • 947 short story series books
  • 267 education books
  • 214 recreation books
  • 187 continuation books
  • 284 contributions
