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.
