Q. Who is she from the world of Literature and why was she in the news off late?



Ans.: Enid Blyton, the author of Famous Five and Secret Seven series along with many children books and stories. She was in the news due to BBC’s ban on her works, which dates back to 30 years of her works being branded as second-rate by the Corporation.

She is Enid Blyton… Author of children books which I believe everyone must have read.
She was recently in news after the disclosure of the BBC inter office correspondence which revealed that BBC did not consider her important enough to be featured. They considered her a “small bee”. This disclosure was criticized everywhere as she is believed to be the best author of children books even now; so many yrs after her death.
