Whilst I personally cannot abide Blyton, I can now understand the appeal.

Wasn't there a child who wrote to Ransome saying, "please write another book with the same children doing all the same things"? It was quoted somewhere in one of the biographical works (I apologise for forgetting the exact reference). I can totally understand why children feel that way, despite our adult reasoning seeing a need for plot development and the lure of something new.
