SUMMARY OF THE BOOK   

ENID BLYTON AS YOU'VE NEVER SEEN HER BEFORE

If you think you know Enid Blyton, after reading this new biography Enid Blyton –The Untold Story, you’ll see how mistaken you are. For this Untold Story will open your eyes to facts about her professional life that have never been revealed before.
You'll be thrilled when you discover how she used her little known artistic and literary endowments and her amazing photographic memory in her work as a professional storyteller and universal teacher.  
More than this, you'll see that, apart from writing over seven hundred storybooks for children, she was also a naturalist, poet, columnist & feature writer, editor of educational books, playwright, prolific songwriter (over 300 songs), artist & illustrator, professional storyteller, passionate gardener and a universal teacher.
By the time you reach the end you'll discover strange talents you never knew she possessed, marvel at how she was able to do all the things described in this book while writing storybooks and wonder why they have never been made known before.
You'll learn, perhaps for the first time, how she wrote her stories and consider three theories I put forward to account for the phenomenon.
You'll also see how the poor quality of some of her stories was caused by a curious set of circumstances now revealed for the first time.
Through this fascinating biography, you now have the unique opportunity to see Enid Blyton in a light that has never been shone on her before.
