Hello Tamzin, what a beautiful letter! Sadly Enid Blyton passed away in 1968, but hopefully I can answer some of your questions for you:

Amelia Jane was actually the name of one of Enid's daughters' rag dolls. It was a big golden haired doll and Enid used to make it be naughty in front of her guests. This of course was her inspiration for the magnificent Amelia Jane stories. There is a picture in Enid Blyton's autobiography of the doll.

Enid's favourite book as a child was The Princess and the Goblin by George Macdonald, but perhaps you mean what was Enid's favourite book of all those that she wrote? If so, I don't know.

A lovely letter, Tamzin. Enid Blyton didn't say which of her own books was her favourite, but she said her favourite character was George from the Famous Five series.

That's a lovely letter from Tamsin. A nice bright border too. :)

Julian gave an exclamation and nudged George.
