Enid Mary Blyton (English Enid Mary Blyton, August 11, 1897, London - November 28, 1968) - a famous British writer who worked in the genre of children`s and youth literature. She became one of the most successful teenage writers of the 20th century. Blyton was born on August 11, 1897 in London, 354 Lordship Lane Street (West Dulwich).

The writer was the eldest daughter of Thomas Carey Blyton (1870-1920), a cutlery dealer, and his wife Theresa Mary, née Harrison (1874 -1950), where in addition to her there were two younger sons, Hanley (born in 1899) and Carey (born in 1902), born after the family moved to the nearby suburb of Beckenham. From 1907 to 1915, Blyton attended St Christopher`s School in Beckenham. She was equally good at both academic work and physical activity. Only mathematics was not given. She was noted for several series of books, designed for different age groups, with recurring protagonists. These books were a huge success in many parts of the world, with over 400 million copies sold. According to one estimate, Blyton is the fifth most popular author of translated literature worldwide. Thus, according to the UNESCO Index of Translations (Index Translationum) by 2007 more than 3400 editions of translations of her books were taken into account; in this respect she is inferior to Shakespeare, but superior to Lenin. fan sequels:
