This new biography of Enid Blyton (1897 – 1968), a prolific and successful writer of children's storybooks, is about her extraordinary professional life. It brings to light facts that both researchers and critics were unaware of and shows she was much more than an ordinary writer of children's storybooks.

It also demystifies her curious writing method and offers for consideration three theories to account for the astonishing phenomenon. In the end it shows she was a genius who used her mind to the fullest extent.

It has nothing much to do with her private life which has already been treated at length by her official biographer, Barbara Stoney, in her remarkable book: Enid Blyton:The Biography. Barbara Stoney passed away March 6, 2009.
