‘Lost’ Enid Blyton Manuscript

Content page

Seven Stories, the national gallery and archive of children’s books has discovered a hitherto unknown manuscript by Enid Blyton among their collection.

Hanna Green, the archivist who made the discovery, dates it to the mid-1930s; an

“an early piece of writing by Blyton, a little bit experimental and perhaps not as confident and accomplished as her later works.”

The 180 page manuscript,titled Mr Tumpy’s Caravan, is a different story to that of the published picture strip book with the similar title, Mr Tumpy and his Caravan.
