Blyton, Enid (1897 – 1968)
‘All children’s books should have the right values in them — they are read by such young, immature minds!’
A three-page autograph letter signed by Enid Blyton, on a folded sheet of Air Mail paper, November 28th 1958.
The author writes to Mr. and Mrs. Firlt, thanking them ‘for sending me the excellent Review — I do not mind passing your letter on to the Dean.’ She goes on, ‘I am so very glad that my books gave pleasure to Howard and that Pamela once liked them too. I am now on to my second generation of readers — for many of the 12 year olds who used to read my books are now grown-up and married and read them to their own children! I always feel so pleased when I hear this!’
Blyton then moves on to the ‘”moral” value of the books — I think all children’s books should have the right values in them — they are read by such young, immature minds!’ before closing by thanking her correspondents for their donation. ‘I’ll buy little things for the children’s stockings with it — each child in our home has a stocking to himself!
In very fine condition.
