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.

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.
