Blyton's books are still enormously popular, and have been translated into 90 languages; her first book, Child Whispers , a page collection of poems, was published in She wrote on a wide range of topics including education, natural history, fantasy, mystery, and biblical narratives and is best remembered today for her Noddy , Famous Five and Secret Seven 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 largely from her unconscious mind: she typed her stories as events unfolded before her. 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 increasingly controversial among literary critics, teachers and parents from the s onwards, because of the alleged unchallenging nature of her writing and the themes of her books, particularly the Noddy series. Some libraries and schools banned her works, which the BBC had refused to broadcast from the s until the s because they were perceived to lack literary merit.

The Brass Teapot
You want me to make you breakfast? With what? There's nothing in the fridge. I'll go to the store when you get paid.
The central conceit of the object, granting its wielder s money as a byproduct of human suffering, is hardly new, but it comes at a particularly appropriate time to work its message. When John returns home early from being fired from his desperately needed job, he finds the small house torn apart and his wife bloodied, but also enough rent to pay off the rest of the year. Here the film begins to stumble, not because of its perfectly logical progression of some money never being enough but its repetitive moralizing and its haphazard movement.
