Pick of an Author - Enid Blyton

Like if this guide is helpful

Though it was countered that she didn't write her work, what is true that in order to write what she did she had to copy formulas of Swallows and Amazons and Just William, as well as the folk tales of Brer Rabbit. Enid Mary Blyton was an ex-teacher who went into writing children books, she didn't relate to people easily, losing contact with her parents, her brothers, and even her two daughters. She is widely known for the Famous Five and the Noddy series (which have had many contraversies, such as Noddy sleeping with Big Ears and the evil Gollywogs).

Here are her top ten bestsellers, according to Amazon.co.uk:

 1. The Magic Faraway Tree.

2. The Enchanted Wood.

3. The Folk of the Faraway Tree.

4. The Adventures of the Wishing Chair

5. First Term at Mallory Towers

6. Second Term at Mallory Towers

7. Third Year at Mallory Towers

8. Five on a Treasure Island

9. Secrets of Mallory Towers

10. In the Fifth at Mallory Towers

Here is the top ten list for Box Sets (Famous Five and Secret Seven are available as a joint box set, but I'm looking for the popular stories, and they're different from each other)

1. The Naughtiest Girl Box Set

2. Mallory Towers Box Set

3. The Faraway Tree Collection

4. St Clares Box Set

5. The Mysteries Series (also known as the Five Find Outers-Fatty Trotteville's not-so-famous five)

6. The Family Collection-Mike, Belinda and Ann

7. The Wishing Chair Collection

8. The Adventure Series (The Mannerings)

9. The Secret Series (not Secret Seven but Mike, Nora and Peggy)

10. The Famous Five Collection.
