Author Notes

Enid Blyton, 1897 - November 28, 1968 Enid Blyton was born in London in 1897. She was educated in a private school and thought that she would become a musician until she realized that writing was her passion. She attended Ipswich High School where she trained to become a kindergarten teacher and eventually opened her own school for infants.

Blyton's first poem was published in 1917, entitled "Have You-" which appeared in Nash's Magazine. In 1922, her first book of verses was published, entitled "Child Whispers." In 1926 she accepted a position editing the children's magazine "Sunny Stories" as well as writing the column "Teachers World." Blyton's first full length children's book was published din 1938 and was titled "The Secret Island." After working on the column for years, Blyton quit "Teachers World" in 1945 and also ended her stint as editor of "Sunny Stories" seven years later. In 1953 she started her own children's magazine called "The Edith Blyton Magazine" which featured stories about her characters and news on the clubs formed around them. Her most famous stories were those of the "Famous Five" The Magazine closed in 1959. In the 50's and 60's Blyton was criticized for the language in her book, for being to simple, but some 300 are still in print today. Blyton has published over 600 books in the course of her career.

Enid Blyton died in her sleep on November 28, 1968. She was 71 years old.

Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-The Secret Seven Society is in danger of closing if they don't take action soon. This coed, school-aged group of seven involve themselves in things mysterious and practice the art of investigation. While working on their shadowing skills, the group happens upon a dognapping scheme, and they're off on a mission of danger and intrigue. The Secret Seven series was originally introduced in Britain in the 1950's. Kids will accept Sarah Greene's clear narration in full British accent. Only a few British expressions will be unfamiliar to American listeners. This title was originally published in the U.S. as The Secret Seven Get Their Man. This is a fun title in the tradition of great childhood sleuths.-Christy Norris-Blanchette, Valley Cottage Library (c) Copyright 2010.
