The Famous Five: A Personal Anecdotage

The Famous Five: A Personal Anecdotage is the first book written on or about Enid Blyton from a multi-cultural stance, that is, from an international panorama. It examines Enid Blyton's changing viewpoints during her literary career toward familial issues, science, health, religion, and the environment through the lenses of one of her most well renowned series, The Famous Five.


  1. The Famous Five serials were widely read during my time.We ( my siblings and cousins)were so entralled by these fictious characters, that during school holidays we would just pretend we were the famous five and assign ourselves into solving 'made up ' mysteries..Even today, it brings a smile recounting those memories...

  2. Thanks a million for your memories of Enid Blyton, aynzan. I too at times relish my "Blyton Days."
