I’m sure none of you have missed the furore over what English Heritage said about Blyton this week, but I thought I would express my thoughts on it this week anyway, which means it’s going to be a bumper week here with three posts.
English Heritage vs Enid Blyton,
Cunningham and Petrov: The Mystery of the Missing Children chapter 12
Hollow Tree House – a reality
A classic from Eileen Soper, my favourite Blyton illustrator, for the first illustration of the week. This one is from Five on a Treasure Island. I love how she has captured George’s haughty face and stiff walk, as well as the surprise on the other three’s faces.
