Favorite Food: Chicken Curries. I like Chinese but prefer Indian. Favorite Animal: I like both Cats and Dogs. Favorite Song: To many to choose from.
I've always been a huge fan of Enid Blyton's books for children, having grown up reading them in my native Sri Lanka. She was one amazing, prolific author of kiddie books, and even as an adult I love reading them , and so does my mom.
Her writing can be considered dated by today's standards but they are still delightful and well-written, in my opinion. Even J.K. Rowling had mentioned Enid as being an inspiration when crafting the HP novels.
My favorites are the St. Clares school series and the Adventure Series featuring Kiki the parrot. I also love her fantasy series with the Adventures of the Wishing Chair and The Faraway Tree books. I still find myself wishing for a ride in the chair and being able to climb the tree and meet all the cute folk that live in its trunk.
Anyhow, any other EB fans here? This is the place to discuss her lovely children's books which IMHO no child should be deprived of reading in their lifetime.
The website you mention here is actually a forum dedicated by members to EB herself Shaliza.

I loved The Faraway Tree, The Wishing Chair and several other series.
She was definitely one of my favourite authors growing up and it annoys me no end that some dirty minded people have made them reprint them with different names, cos you know, can't have kids called Fanny and Dick!
Wasn't Fanny the Aunt (Georges Mother) of Julian, Dick and Ann? I don't think she was a kid.
Yes, she was. She was married to stern Uncle Quentin, a scientist.
