A detailed and interesting letter, Tegan. Curious Connie in The Folk of the Faraway Tree is a wonderful character to read about.

Enid Blyton had a vivid imagination and she found that all sorts of ideas popped into her mind and formed themselves into stories. She said the stories came into her head so fast that her fingers could barely type quickly enough to get them down on paper.

Enid Blyton was going to train as a concert pianist, but then she changed her plans and trained as a teacher instead. She worked as a teacher for about five years before giving it up to concentrate on her writing full-time.

Her favourite character was George (short for Georgina) in the Famous Five series. George is strong, brave, honest, loyal and a bit of a tomboy - rather like Enid herself when she was a girl.

A lovely well-written letter from Tegan. :)

Julian gave an exclamation and nudged George.

An excellent letter, Tegan! I agree that the Faraway Tree books are a very creative and imaginative set of books - and they feature some very memorable and amusing characters!
