The other day, this kid came into my store, with a long list of holiday assignments he was supposed to do with the help of internet. He is one of those local kids who don't even have a computer at home, forget about internet.
Now, I don't really understand the point of giving such "internet assignments" in schools these days, but that calls for another post... a "rant" post... some other time. Let's get back to the topic on hand today...
One of the assignments on that kid's list was "write a review of a book by Enid Blyton". Now, naturally, he was supposed to read that book first, but he had decided he was going to skip that step! Therefore, I was asked to look up an Enid Blyton book review from the net and give its printout to him.
That made me think...
As a kid, the maximum number of books that I have read by a single author were that of Enid Blyton.
I've been to the magical world of fairies, goblins and pixies in her Faraway Tree series. I've been on the Adventures of the Wishing-Chair. I've been friends with The Naughtiest Girl in the School and have dreamt of going to a school like the Malory Towers or St. Claire's. I've devoured the adventures of The Famous Five and The Secret Seven. Then there was the Five Find-Outers series and the Adventure series. And let us not forget little Noddy here!
As per wikipedia, Enid Blyton has written over 750 books during her life span. I doubt if I've read even half of them. Nevertheless, she remains my favorite author as a kid.
Who was your favorite author as a kid? Would you recommend his/her books to your kids too?
