Why is she a hero?
She's a hero because she has encouged generations of children to read! Enid is a brilliant novelist, and has gotten children of all ages into her charming books. Even boys love the adventure stories, close to real things that happened in daily life when Enid was a child. She has received two awards for her work. The first came from the Boy's Club of America for "The Mystery Island" in 1941. Blyton was also chosen in the 2008 Costa Book Award survey as the best-loved author in the UK. That was forty years after her death! She wil be recognised for centuries for her work, and this should be recognised.
