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 is unique in that it has nothing to do with her marital difficulties, family troubles and the sometimes unfair criticism of some of her stories that are already out there. People who want to read something new and refreshing about her can find it in this new biography.

More than this, it 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 unravels the mystery of her ability to write hundreds of stories as if effortlessly, reveals gifts and talents she's never known to possess, and shown is the end she  was a genius who used her mind to the fullest extent
