Enid Mary Blyton was an English children's writer whose books have been among the world's best-sellers since the 1930s, selling more than 600 million copies. Blyton's books are still enormously popular, have been translated into 90 languages, she wrote on a wide range of topics including education, natural history, fantasy and biblical narratives and is best remembered today for her Noddy, Famous Five, Secret Seven and Malory Towers series. Following the commercial success of her early novels such as Adventures of the Wishing-Chair and The Enchanted Wood, Blyton went on to build a literary empire, sometimes producing fifty books a year in addition to her prolific magazine and newspaper contributions, her writing was unplanned and sprang from her unconscious mind. The sheer volume of her work and the speed with which it was produced led to rumours that Blyton employed an army of ghost writers, a charge she vigorously denied. Blyton's work became controversial among literary critics and parents from the 1950s onwards, because of the alleged unchallenging nature of her writing and the themes of her books the Noddy series.
Some libraries and schools banned her works, which the BBC had refused to broadcast from the 1930s until the 1950s because they were perceived to lack literary merit. Her books have been criticised as being elitist, racist, xenophobic and at odds with the more liberal environment emerging in post-war Britain, but they have continued to be best-sellers since her death in 1968. Blyton felt she had a responsibility to provide her readers with a strong moral framework, so she encouraged them to support worthy causes. In particular, through the clubs she set up or supported, she encouraged and organised them to raise funds for animal and paediatric charities; the story of Blyton's life was dramatised in a BBC film entitled Enid, featuring Helena Bonham Carter in the title role and first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC Four in 2009. There have been several adaptations of her books for stage and television. Enid Blyton was born on 11 August 1897 in East Dulwich, South London, the oldest of the three children, to Thomas Carey Blyton, a cutlery salesman, his wife Theresa Mary.
Enid's younger brothers and Carey, were born after the family had moved to a semi-detached villa in Beckenham a village in Kent. A few months after her birth Enid died from whooping cough, but was nursed back to health by her father, whom she adored. Thomas Blyton ignited Enid's interest in nature, he passed on his interest in gardening, music and the theatre, the pair went on nature walks, much to the disapproval of Enid's mother, who showed little interest in her daughter's pursuits. Enid was devastated when he left the family shortly after her thirteenth birthday to live with another woman. Enid and her mother did not have a good relationship, she did not attend either of her parents' funerals. From 1907 to 1915 Blyton attended St Christopher's School in Beckenham, where she enjoyed physical activities and became school tennis champion and captain of lacrosse, she was not so keen on all the academic subjects but excelled in writing, in 1911 she entered Arthur Mee's children's poetry competition.
Mee offered encouraging her to produce more. Blyton's mother considered her efforts at writing to be a "waste of time and money", but she was encouraged to persevere by Mabel Attenborough, the aunt of school friend Mary Potter. Blyton's father taught her to play the piano, which she mastered well enough for him to believe that she might follow in his sister's footsteps and become a professional musician. Blyton considered enrolling at the Guildhall School of Music, but decided she was better suited to becoming a writer. After finishing school in 1915 as head girl, she moved out of the family home to live with her friend Mary Attenborough, before going to stay with George and Emily Hunt at Seckford Hall near Woodbridge in Suffolk. Seckford Hall, with its haunted room and secret passageway provided inspiration for her writing. At Woodbridge Congregational Church Blyton met Ida Hunt, who taught at Ipswich High School, suggested that she train as a teacher. Blyton was introduced to the children at the nursery school, recognising her natural affinity with them she enrolled in a National Froebel Union teacher training course at the school in September 1916.
By this time she had ceased contact with her family. Blyton's manuscripts had been rejected by publishers on many occasions, which only made her more determined to succeed: "it is the struggle that helps you so much, that gives you determination, self-reliance – all things that help in any profession or trade, most in writing". In March 1916 her first poems were published in Nash's Magazine, she completed her teacher training course in December 1918, the following month obtained a teaching appointment at Bickley Park School, a small independent establishment for boys in Bickley, Kent. Two months Blyton received a teaching certificate with distinctions in zoology and principles of education, 1st class in botany, geography and history of education, child hygiene and class teaching and 2nd class in literature and elementary mathematics. In 1920 she moved to Southernhay in Hook Road Surbiton as nursery governess to the four sons of architect Ho
Gwendolen is a feminine given name, in general use only since the 19th century. It has come to be the standard English form of Latin Guendoloena, first used by Geoffrey of Monmouth as the name of a legendary British queen in his History of the Kings of Britain, he reused the name in his Life of Merlin for a different character, the wife of the titular magician "Merlinus", a counsellor to King Arthur. Dr. Arthur Hutson suggests that "Guendoloena" arose from a misreading of the old Welsh masculine name Guendoleu. In the Vita Merlini, Geoffrey Latinizes the masculine name of Gwenddoleu ap Ceidio as Guennolous. Spelled Gwendoloena, the name reoccurs in the anonymous Latin romance De Ortu Waluuanii belonging to Arthur's queen Guinevere, it did not become a common English given name until the 19th century.

Under the initial guidance of Lupa, the wolf-goddess and protector of ancient Rome, he makes his way toward Camp Jupiter, the Roman demigod training camp and counterpart to the Greek demigods' Camp Half-Blood. Upon arriving, he is attacked by several Gorgons — Stheno and Euryale — and defends a disguised goddess Juno and the camp with the help of the guards on duty. Having been protected by Percy during the attack, Juno announces Percy's arrival with approval, identifying him as a son of Neptune, she tells him that he can only regain his memory by learning to be a hero again and survive the challenges he encounters at camp. He befriends the guards, Frank Zhang, son of Mars. Octavian tells Percy. Being outcasts themselves at Camp Jupiter and Hazel empathize with Percy's outsider status and consider it their duty to help him adjust and acclimatize to the camp's routines and leadership.
