Read full description of the books:
It's no Faraway Tree book, but the Adventures of the Wishing Chair is a delightful read and one which parents will enjoy just as much as children. In it, two children (Mollie and Peter) discover a magical wishing chair in a mysterious antiques shop - it has the ability to grow wings and fly, and it does so to take them home from the shop.
Of course, Blyton sprinkles in characteristically weird names, too - 'Chinky' the pixie, for example. I mean, is that deliberately racist? The book was first published in 1937, in a time when it was common practice to use the word 'nigger' in serious pieces of literature, but still.
This is effectively a collection of short stories that are held together by the common plot device of the flying chair, but that's good news for parents who read to their children before bedtime - the stories are both sequential and stand-alone, and each chapter is the perfect length.

Read information about the authorEnid Mary Blyton (1897 - 1968) was an English author of children's books.
Born in South London, Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 1924 marriage to editor Hugh Pollock, with whom she had two daughters. This marriage ended in divorce, and Blyton remarried in 1943, to surgeon Kenneth Fraser Darrell Waters. She died in 1968, one year after her second husband.
Blyton was a prolific author of children's books, who penned an estimated 800 books over about 40 years. Her stories were often either children's adventure and mystery stories, or fantasies involving magic. Notable series include: The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Five Find-Outers, Noddy, The Wishing Chair, Mallory Towers, and St. Clare's.
According to the Index Translationum, Blyton was the fifth most popular author in the world in 2007, coming after Lenin but ahead of Shakespeare.
AKA Ένιντ Μπλάιτον (Greek).
