Read full description of the books The Mountain of Adventure and The Ship of Adventure: Two Great Adventures:Two more entries in Enid Blyton's Adventure series, which has been a favorite of mine since childhood.
While I enjoy Mountain, it may be my least favorite in the series. Part of the plot is highly unbelievable. The four children, along with their mother, and friend Bill, are on holiday in Wales. When Mrs. Mannering hurts her hand, the four children are allowed to go camping with only David, the Welsh donkey owner, for guide and escort. But when something scares David, he runs away, followed by the donkeys, leaving the children smackdab in the middle of another adventure.
On the other hand, Ship is one of my favorites. Who can resist a tale of lost treasure on a Greek isle? A gift from Lucy-Ann to Philip i just the beginning of another exciting adventure.
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.
