Unpublished Enid Blyton book discovered

An unpublished Enid Blyton manuscript is believed to have been discovered in an archive of her work. The manuscript titled 'Mr Tumpy's Caravan' is a fantasy story that was auctioned in 2010. The work was auctioned alongside a whole collection of manuscripts and was brought for circa £40,000 by The Seven Stories, which is the national gallery and archive for children's books in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Archivist Hannah Green was the fortunate individual to stumble across this unpublished piece.

Can you believe that Enid Blyton wrote nearly 800 books throughout her career. Her books have sold more than 500 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 40 different languages.
