Read full description of the books Upper Fourth at Malory Towers:Blyton's protagonist, lively Darrell Rivers, takes a leadership role in her term in the Upper Fourth Form, which irritates the hapless Gwendoline, who is unrelentingly unpleasant as well as lazy and overweight (of course: that's the Blyton stereotype of a villain). She is dismayed when little sister Felicity is befriended by the brazen June, who is cousin to Darrell's nemesis Alicia and whom Darrell does not trust. The book is full of stock characters (including twins who are opposite personalities and an Honorable who is shy and unassuming), typical Blyton adventures (including of course a midnight feast), and all kinds of problems for Darrell and Felicity, but somehow Blyton's moral compass manages to hold steady and things turn out for the best. Fun for school story lovers, but I like Blyton's Naughtiest Girl series better (and the education is better, too!)
Read information about the author(See also her pen name Mary Pollock)
Born in 1897 in South London, Enid Mary Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to editor Hugh Pollock, with whom she had two daughters. This marriage ended in divorce, and Blyton remarried in 1943, to surgeon Kenneth Fraser Darrell Waters. She died in 1968, one year after her second husband.
Enid Blyton was a prolific author of children's books, who penned an estimated 800 books over about 40 years. Her stories were often either children's adventure and mystery stories, or fantasies involving magic. Notable series include: The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Five Find-Outers, Noddy, The Wishing Chair, Mallory Towers, and St. Clare's.
According to the Index Translationum, Blyton was the fifth most popular author in the world in 2007, coming after Lenin but ahead of Shakespeare.
