Monday #429


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

and

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.

      You shouldn’t be able to find any of those post yet – I haven’t published them yet! (In fact I haven’t even written one of them yet.) EB vs EH will be up at 9am today, the fan fic on Friday and the last post on Sunday.
