Enid Blyton is also the author of the Noddy series, for early readers. I think those were the first chapter books I read --except they were in French and were called Oui-Oui. :-D

Her Famous Five and Secret Seven books were popular in France, too. I read quite a few of them.

I just received a box set of the famous five books for Christmas. Enid Blyton is essential children's reading material here. My favorites are the Naughtiest Girl series, Mallory Towers, Girls at St. Claires and the Magic Faraway Tree series

Now I would not have known the names of the Secret Seven myself, as I never read any of Enid Blyton's books about them. I would have know the answer was the Famous Five if asked who were Julian, D*ck, George, Anne and Timmy the dog. (I put in the *  because the full word might not get through on this system)
Enid Bagnold wrote "National Velvet" a favourite book of mine even today.
