How many books did Enid Blyton write?
This is easily the most asked question about our beloved author, and it's amazing how many different answers there are. The truth is, it depends on what you mean by "book." Do you mean novels? Short story compilations? Character books? Non-fiction nature books? The following numbers are shamelessly borrowed from the Enid Blyton Society's database and updated real-time. For a far more detailed analysis, visit the Society's immense Cave of Books.
Note: Enid is credited with over 10,900 short stories, poems and plays throughout her career, but some were used many times so the actual number is more like 7500. Check out this comprehensive, detailed listing.
258 character books
947 short story series books
267 education books
215 recreation books
187 continuation books
285 Enid Blyton contributions

April 17, 2015 - Kirk says: I have a copy of Child Whispers published in 1922 with the original pictorial wrapper as issue. Would any one know much about this book? .
Daisy says: If you go to the Enid Blyton Society, Kirk, and go to the section Cave of Books, you will find the information you require.
April 16, 2015 - Pete says: Mr. Brian Carter has released a picture of the back cover of his new book, Enid Blyton - The Untold Story. It looks very good,but I wish I could see it a little larger if possible Brian?
Best Wishes Pete.
April 15, 2015 - DW says: Who do you think Fatty and other Blyton characters, such as Julian would be voting for in the general election, if they were adults now? .
April 14, 2015 - Fatty says:As my hint below seems to have fallen on deaf ears, can I ask that if you want to discuss certain series/books, you do so in Talk About Blyton - that is what it is there for! The Message Board is essentially for general queries, not in-depth discussions. Your co-operation in this will be appreciated.
April 13, 2015 - Evie M says: Buster, you're so awesome nobody NEEDS to vote for you; it goes without saying.
Buster says: Thank you, Evie. Woof!
Fatty says: Creep!
Mr Goon says: Gah!
April 13, 2015 - Tinky says: Sorry Buster! You can come third, because you bite Goon's and Tupping's ankles!
April 12, 2015 - Evie M says: Yes, I reread the whole scene and they thought all sorts of people were Fatty, it was funny ; -) By the way Tinky, who are you favourite Find-Outers in order? My order is Pip Larry Fatty/Daisy Bets.
Fatty says: We do have a "Favourite character" section in Talk About Blyton/Find-Outers. You might want to discuss favourite characters there.
April 12, 2015 - Tinky says: I think Pip called the roundabout man Fatty, anyway, Evie!!
April 12, 2015 - Evie M says: Has anyone read Journey to the River Sea? It's not by Enid Blyton but if you haven't read it I recommend it SO MUCH because it is just FANTASTIC and by the far the best book I have ever read in my life!!!!!! It's similar to EB because children have adventures and stuff but at the same time it's very different, I think you'll all enjoy it!!!!
April 12, 2015 - Evie M says: I suppose that makes sense, but it seems a bit risky to assume it's Fatty because of that. Lucky it was him, imagine if it wasn't, lol! "Fatty," whispered Bets."Is it really you? " (Or whatever she said) "WHAT ARE YOU CALLING ME FATTY FOR? " yelled the balloon woman ; -) OK now I have to work out 7 + 9, great! Err. 16? .
Daisy says: Evie, I think maybe you're looking a bit too deeply into a fiction book. It was bound to be Fatty, Enid wrote it that way, it's all part of the story!
April 11, 2015 - Evie M says: Thanks! I was wondering, I remember that Bets guesses it's Fatty because of his clean nails. But I don't understand how that's a logical guess. I mean sure she was correct and it was observant to think that and even notice the nails. But why does that mean it has to be Fatty? Anyone can have clean nails, anyone can have filthy nails. Mine are practically black lol. : -D Thank you in advance for answers.
Buster says: As Fatty explains in the book, Evie. The balloon woman wasn't particularly a clean lady, she had dirty hands, and so therefore she would have had dirty nails too. You wouldn't be that particular to make sure you had clean immaculate nails, and ignore the rest of your body. Fatty had dirtied his hands, even face maybe, to look like an old balloon woman who lived a travellers life, and had forgotten the essential thing that gave him away!
April 11, 2015 - Evie M says: Which book is it where Fatty dresses up as a balloon woman? .
Buster says: The book is called The Mystery of the Missing Necklace.
April 10, 2015 - Tinky says: I guess the characters I dislike Evie, are stereotypical ones to dislike - for example, Susie from Secret Seven, Arabella from Naughtiest Girl, Gwen from Malory Towers, hang on - typing this I am not sure that I DO dislike them after all. I just feel like the other characters in the book do towards them.
