Enid Blyton is Number One... J.K. Rowling is Number Three

Enid who?? Blyton. An incredibly prolific writer of children's books in England. Just "voted" the Most Cherished Author. (þ: Literary Saloon)

ETA: I actually know (and love) Ms. Blyton. Over the years I've collected her school stories, her Famous Five and Five Find-Outers mysteries and her Nature Books. For some odd reason, she's virtually unknown in the US, and her books are not published here.

I loved these books when I was a kid. These are the first mysteries I remember reading and I still remember the parrot who can imitate a train whistle.
