From the late 1930s to the early 1970s, Enid Blyton published more than 600 children's books; in 1974 she was the fourth most translated author in the world, with 149 translations of her work in 15 different countries. This book discusses the critical reception of her work by contemporary adults, the appeal of Blyton's books to children, and how her reputation has been rehabilitated with time.
