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.
  • 186 novels/novelettes
  • 258 character books
  • 944 short story series books
  • 267 education books
  • 210 recreation books
  • 181 continuation books

Messages from Enid Blyton fans...

October 8, 2014 - Ana says: Hallo there, Fatty and Bets! I'm glad that I've finished all the Enid Blyton books! Is there a book you could think of that I most probably haven't read? Or any other books similar to Enid Blyton's? I'd be most obliged if you could suggest something. : ) Cheers, Ana.
Fatty says... Fatty says: I am sure you haven't read all of Enid's books! Check out our series links above.
October 7, 2014 - Farwa says: The "Secret Seven" series would be a good choice, Shiby - if you haven't read it already!
September 30, 2014 - shiby says: I am going to finish both Famous Five and the Five Find Outers and dogs series. Fatty can you recommend a series by Enid Blyton which is the next best after these two.
Fatty says... Fatty says: We have all of the series near the top of the page. Why not click on the links and decide for yourself?
September 30, 2014 - Farwa says: There should be a section to start topics related to short stories on this website. There are sections for Famous Five, Secret Seven, and other popular series, but there is not any section for Enid's short stories. Please make one, as I think that many people would want such a section.
Fatty says... Fatty says: You can post under the Unlisted section.
September 21, 2014 - Haieda says: I'm a Bachelor of Applied Linguistics student who's planning to write a term paper regarding culture and translation so could anyone please recommend me a title of one of Enid Blyton's books which really shows the 'setting of 1940s until 1960s in Britain'. Hope to get reply as soon as possible. Thanks a lot.
Fatty says... Fatty says: The Five Find-Outers' titles are set in post-war England and give an example of village life. Six Bad Boys is a fine stand-alone title that might be worth a try. Why not take a look at the books on this site - there are reviews and plot summaries - just click on the individual boxes to select a series. There is also a wealth of information on the Enid Blyton Society website. You could also ask your question on the Society forums, but you will have to register first to be able to post.
August 29, 2014 - George says: Hello! I just found this site today and I just love to see that Blytons fans are able to talk to you two Fatty and Bets. I am simply CRAZY about Enid Blyton's books. Can anyone tell me whether there is a site where I can read Blyton's books online for free. I've surfed alot but can't find any such site. There are available here in U. A. E but ofcourse I can't buy ALL the books and I want to read them. So can anyone help? .
Fatty says... Fatty says: Only shoplifters can read Enid's books for free. They are still under copyright so not yet in the public domain. However, you can find copies relatively cheaply in second-hand shops or online.
August 28, 2014 - Jane Rose says: I remember an Enid Blyton hardback book from the 50's or 60's with a picture on the front of children sliding down a helter-skelter. The book was, I think, a collection of short stories. I would love to replace the book but do not know the name. Is there any chance of finding out? .
Fatty says... Fatty says: Anyone help?
August 23, 2014 - Abhinav k.p says: I would like to do for her books! they are so amazing! I wish if I had any adventure like that! I have read many books of her and wants to read more! but it's nowhere to be found! And I believe that I am her greatest fan because I love her books more than anything!
Fatty says... Fatty says: I think I know what you mean...
August 21, 2014 - Paul says: There was a really good book that I wish had actually been written by Enid, where mystery solving children in wartime England receive messages from British East Africa through a short-wave receiver/transmitter and their contact in Africa goes by the name Richard the Lionheart.
Fatty says... Fatty says: I guess 700+ books was a pretty good score, Paul. Sounds a good story though. Title and name possible?
August 19, 2014 - muskan says: I love Enid Blyton novels and simply enjoy reading them. I just want its complete set but cant find it in Nigeria. My favorite character is bets simply love her.
Fatty says... Fatty says: That would certainly be a very large set!
August 16, 2014 - Indrachapa says: Hello! Fatty and bets! What happens in the Ship of Adventure? .
Fatty says... Fatty says: Read the book and find out! [rolls eyes]
August 1, 2014 - S. Wolf says: Agreed with those who disapprove of the revisionists. The rights to publish these novels should be stripped from firms which indulge in such unnecessary political correctness and given to those who show respect for the source material. It's the same sort of nonsense which had me ignore a recent American tv series because the network had issued a press release stating that, though it was set in the early 60s - when many (most? ) smoked like chimneys - there would be no sign of anyone doing so (even by adding harmless CGI cigarette smoke) because they disapproved of the habit and didn't want to be seen as encouraging it. Orwell would be proud.
July 28, 2014 - Tamara says: Hi Fatty and Bets, long time no see! I have been awfully busy with my exams, and of course with writing my fanfic. It's been quite hard putting all my ideas into words, but it's a bit more easier now. Enid wrote HER novels without any planning, and that she used her imagination to come up with plots, and to a little girl like me that seems huge. I certainly can't do that! I just wanted to ask you one thing, and that is that what is the color of Bets's hair and eyes? I was just wondering. Thanks!
Fatty says... Fatty says: Bets' eyes are bloodshot, and her hair is grey. ;-)
July 28, 2014 - Paul says: What the blimey is going through the minds of modern publishers that they think tiny little minds will be scarred by Zerelda Brass having a trendy Second World War-era hairstyle? .
July 24, 2014 - Gus says: When I was young I had a Secret seven book that included dice and 'solve it yourself' bits. Can anyone let me know where I can get this? .
Fatty says... Fatty says: I don't know about SS game books, but there were certainly Famous Five Adventure Game Books. Check HERE for details. If these are what you had in mind, I can only suggest the usual online web sites such as eBay to track down copies.
