Read full description of the books The Castle of Adventure:I love all books by Enid Blyton. I first read this book about 35 years ago. I still love it 35 years hence. The adventures the four children had in the castle on the hill have engrossed my sister and me for a long time. The boldness of the children to explore things on their own, the courage to enter a castle which looked scary and overgrown, and their adventurous spirt all fascinated me as a child and still do. I loved the character of Philip because I am an animal lover myself. My only disappointment is that my daughters do not appreciate Enid Blyton's style of writing as much as I did at their age. They tell me they can't relate to things written in her books and perhaps its true. For those were the good old days ,
Children in Enid Blyton's books were let free to grow up on their own, with a limited level of guidance and support from their parents. This made them strong and independent, yet retaining a degree of their childhood innocence. The age of the Enid Blyton books is perhaps dying out but the readers who used to enjoy these books as children can encourage their children to continue reading these classic children's stories, to keep them for posterity.
Read information about the authorEnid Mary Blyton (1897 - 1968) was an English author of children's books.
Born in South London, Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to editor Hugh Pollock, with whom she had two daughters. This marriage ended in divorce, and Blyton remarried in 1943, to surgeon Kenneth Fraser Darrell Waters. She died in 1968, one year after her second husband.
Blyton was a prolific author of children's books, who penned an estimated 800 books over about 40 years. Her stories were often either children's adventure and mystery stories, or fantasies involving magic. Notable series include: The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Five Find-Outers, Noddy, The Wishing Chair, Mallory Towers, and St. Clare's.
According to the Index Translationum, Blyton was the fifth most popular author in the world in 2007, coming after Lenin but ahead of Shakespeare.
