Enid Blyton's first book was published in 1922 when she was in her mid twenties, Lola. It was a book of poetry called Child Whispers. Before that she had already had articles, poems and stories published in magazines. From an early age, it was clear that she had a talent for telling stories. Stories would flood into her mind when she lay in bed at night, and she would make up tales to tell to her younger brothers.

Enid Blyton died in 1968 at the age of 71, but her books live on and continue to bring pleasure to children all over the world.
