Enid Blyton (11 August 1897 28 November 1968) was an English children's writer also known as Mary Pollock.
One of Blyton's most widely known characters is Noddy, intended for early years readers. However, her main work is the genre of young readers' novels in which children have their own adventures with minimal adult help. Series of this type include the Famous Five (21 novels, 19421963, based on four children and their dog), the Five Find-Outers and Dog, (15 novels, 19431961, where five children regularly outwit the local police) as well as The Secret Seven (15 novels, 19491963, a society of seven children who solve various mysteries).
Her work involves children's adventure stories, and fantasy, sometimes involving magic. Her books were and still are enormously popular throughout the Commonwealth; as translations in the former Yugoslavia, Japan; as adaptations in Arabic; and across most of the globe. Her work has been translated into nearly 90 languages.
