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
946 short story series books
267 education books
214 recreation books
187 continuation books

January 27, 2015 - Lizzy says: Thank you for your time to reply and information, The Five Find-outers are my favourites.
January 27, 2015 - Lizzy says: I'm planning a trip to Bourne End, Marlow , Beaconsfield, to see if I can make out Peterswood and some of the places The Five Find-outers solved their mysteries - lived, and try to make out the High Street. Have you any information that would be helpfull please to help me on my way.
Buster says: Peterswood is loosely based on Bourne End. Also in Bourne End is the house where Enid used to live before moving to Green Hedges which was in Beaconsfield.
If you look on the Enid Blyton Society forums, there is a thread about Bourne End/Peterswood. But of course most of Peterwood was Enid's imagination

January 25, 2015 - Tinky says: No worries, we'd get bored if we never differed in opinions anyway : ).
Buster says: We like to hear what others think of Enid's books, but remember these characters are Enid's fictitious characters, so it's always best to discuss them calmly.
January 24, 2015 - Evie M says: Quite right Tinky : ) : ) I am sorry if anyone was offended by any of my earlier comments xx.
January 24, 2015 - Tinky says: You never will either Evie, boring Enid Blyton books aren't out there to be found : ) : ).
January 24, 2015 - Evie M says: Of course Daisy I have NEVER read a boring Enid Blyton book haha : ) : ).
January 24, 2015 - Evie M says: And I agree with you, Tinky, Kiki is awesome : ).
Buster says: And fun to chase! Woof!
January 24, 2015 - Evie M says: OK, I am very childish and I'm sorry. Fatty, I will not make Lucy-Ann fall overboard, I'm not that mean. But yes I would like to write a sequel to the Adventure series. I will maybe write a short one where they are all grown up and married, and no, I will not have Lucy-Ann end up with some loser. Don't worry : ) : ) haha Tinky yes I remember reading about Elizabeth Allen and thinking 'hmm, she's a bit like me' lol. But Julie, I agree with you that it's good the way Enid has created characters you either love or dislike. After all, if all the characters were likeable then it would be a bit boring and obviously characters someone likes someone else dislikes, which I think is interesting. For example, a lot of people dislike Dinah because of her violent temper but that is one of the main reasons I love her (Philip is the best though : ) ) Also I think Lucy-Ann is a likeable character, it's just in certain books I find her slightly irritating. I apologise for my very angry posts : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) xx.
Daisy says: Nice of you to apologise, Evie. I hope you read lots of Enid's books and enjoy them in the way Enid intended them to be enjoyed.
