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

It also shows that, apart from writing over seven hundred storybooks for children, she was also a naturalist, poet, columnist & feature writer, editor of educational books, universal teacher, prolific songwriter (over 300 songs), professional storyteller, playwright, artist & illustrator and a passionate gardener, with a chapter in the book devoted to each of these 'hats' she'd been wearing.

It 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 is unique in that it has nothing to do with the alleged salacious goings-on in her private life and the sometimes unfair criticism of a small number of her stories. These matters have already been treated at length by other biographers. Readers who want to read something new and refreshing about her can find it in this new biography.
