Tentang Enid Blyton Penulis Favorit dan Legendaris Sepanjang Masa
Enid Mary Blyton was an English writer of over 600 children’s books. She was famous for creating characters like ‘Noddy’ and created many adventurous, fantastical and magical books for little children. Her books are still popular amongst children all over the globe and her work has been translated into 90 languages.
She was born in London and brought up in Kent. She had a close relationship with her father who used to inspire her towards art and writing and made her a nature lover but her relationship with her mother was turbulent and she never really came close to her. After her parents’ divorce, Blyton left to be a teacher and a governess and started writing short stories, verses and plays. Some of these were published in small time magazines but her big break came in 1924 when a famous publication called George Newness signed her up.
It was here that she met her first husband Hugh Pollock. But her marriage could not survive and she married for the second time to a surgeon called Kenneth Waters. She wrote many famous books like: ‘The Enid Blyton Book of Bunnies’, ‘The Enid Blyton Book of Brownies’, ‘London Zoo- The Zoo Book’, etc. Her writings were considered to be immature, unrealistic and therefore not fit for young children by the critics of that time. But that did not stop her books from becoming famous amongst little children. She is considered to be instrumental in inculcating a habit of reading in young children through hundreds of her books.
