That's a lovely clear letter. How nice that these youngsters are so interested in Blyton and her books. :)

Julian gave an exclamation and nudged George.
"See that? It's the black Bentley again. KMF 102!"

Ah - I see all four kids started their letters the same way. Good to see four kids of the same class writing to the same author though!
"It's the ash! It's falling!" yelled Julian, almost startling Dick out of his wits...
"Listen to its terrible groans and creaks!" yelled Julian, almost beside himself with impatience.

It's lovely to read your letter and to know that you enjoy Enid Blyton's books, Ameila Mcl. :D

An interesting letter, Amelia. Enid Blyton always enjoyed making up stories, even as a child. At school she won prizes for creative writing. She was a good piano player and her parents wanted her to become a professional musician, but instead she became a teacher and then a writer.

Enid Blyton had a very fertile imagination. She said that the Enchanted Wood, the Faraway Tree and the characters who lived there just popped into her head, and she saw the adventures happening as though she had her own cinema screen in her mind. She wrote quickly, often finishing a book within a week.

Nice letter! I suppose you're from Maia's class? Your questions make me curious too, Amelia McI.

A very nice letter, Amelia. Enid Blyton's mind was like a lovely screen, where her absolutely gorgeous imagination made way for her lovely books. Always read Blyton.
