and I collect them on Pinterest and flashdrives. I particular love the illustrations of old girls’ series. Enid Blyton wasn’t one of the writers I read; she wasn’t popular in the United States as she was in the U.K. But I read the first Malory Towers as an adult, and it was great fun – just the kind of old-style descriptions and antique phrasing – some may say stilted; I say wonderful – I loved as a child.
This little cartoon is great because it reminds me of all of us who collected books and loved them as children and as adults, too.
Finally – and I should probably have started with this – today is Enid Blyton’s birthday. She would have been 115 years old.
Happy Birthday to a very prolific writer of beloved children’s books (600 of them!)!
